It was revealed why the actresses will not be part of the long-awaited Marvel Studios premiere. Didn’t they want to be a part?
Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit theaters on December 17 and promises to be a movie that will change the Marvel Cinematic Universe forever, as it will include the long-awaited multiverse that all fans wanted to see. It is known that it will have some figures from the past, so rumors also came about the possible participation of Kirsten Dunst and Emma Stone.
The first comments on this came when the presences of Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus and Jamie Foxx in the role of Electro were confirmed. Both actors returned as the respective villains of Sam Raimi and Marc Webb’s Spider-Man, so some also claim that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parkers will have their place in the film .
Why aren’t Kirsten Dunst and Emma Stone in the movie?
When the first interpreters were announced for the film, the insider Daniel Richtman reported on his sites that the MCU had in its plans to incorporate Mary Jane from Dunst and Gwen Stacy from Stone. Although Kirsten denied it at the time, mentioning that she was not involved in the project, apparently the data was completely true, but there was a reason why the actresses declined their participation.
According to Richtman himself, who is one of Hollywood’s best-sourced informants, Kirsten Dunst and Emma Stone were in Kevin Feige’s plans for them to be part of the Spidey sequel, but restrictions on the set because of the Coronavirus pandemic prevented it. Let’s remember that the script for this movie has been modified more than once , so it makes sense that they would have imagined it.
Although they may not be in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the journalist also reported that the MCU plans to add them for future productions and return as their characters to the franchise . So far no one from Marvel Studios has raised their voice to make this information official, but it is to be expected considering that they do not usually refer to rumors, since some of them are true.
