What Was Tom Holland’s Response To Kirsten Dunst’s Opinion On Milking Spider-Man Franchise?

By Shawn Rice

Tom Holland is the new Spider-Man for the Marvel and Sony collaboration. Before him, fans saw two other versions. The first was Tobey Maguire whose love interest, Mary Jane Watson, was played by Kirsten Dunst in Sam Raimi’s trilogy of “Spider-Man” films.

Dunst clearly remains a fan of the original Sony films, but has come out to publicly state that she has little interest in the two “The Amazing Spider-Man” films that followed, and this year’s “Spider-Man Homecoming” which starred Holland.

Dunst was less than enthusiastic about the new Spidey. In an interview with Variety, she expressed her belief that the Spider-Man movies exist for no other reason than profit.

“We made the best ones, so who cares? I’m like, “You make it all you want.” They’re just milking that cow for money. It’s so obvious. You know what I mean?’”

With her opinions in mind, Holland has now responded. He told Movie’n’co UK this week:

“I read it and I saw it. You know, she’s entitled to her own opinion and I’m not one to judge at all. I definitely am not doing this movie for the money. I mean, it’s a job that I think anyone would do regardless of what you were getting paid, you know? All I know is I’ve had the greatest time on this movie and I’ve absolutely loved it and, you know if she doesn’t want to go and see it, I don’t really care. But yeah, I don’t dislike her in any way for what she said and she’s entitled to her own opinion, so it’s all cool.”

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” has performed very well, pulling in more than $630 million worldwide and scoring the second best reviews of the franchise. It remains in cinemas and Holland will remain in the character for the foreseeable future including character appearances in no less than three films over the next two years.

A young Peter Parker / Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming also stars Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Donald Glover and Tyne Daly.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming was written by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley, Jon Watts & Christopher Ford, and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers. The film is produced by Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal, and executive produced by Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Jeremy Latcham, and Stan Lee.
