ComingSoon.net/SuperheroHype.com caught up with Kirsten Dunst today and talked to her about reprising the role of Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man 3.
Asked about the conflicting reports on whether there may or may not have been additional shooting, Dunst said she had not done any more shooting since filming wrapped. "I haven't yet no, but I think there are some blue screen things. Nothing major."
Mary Jane Watson will be joined by Gwen Stacy (Bryce Dallas Howard) in the sequel who rivals her for Peter Parker's affections. Dunst said there was no competition on the set between the two, however.
"It's so funny. Everyone asks me that like it's a competitive thing, but Bryce and I got along better than anybody," she explained. "I was happy to have another girl to share all of that testosterone with. It was nice to come to set and have a girl to hang out with. Her character adds another type of woman that puts Peter in a position obviously with conflict with me and lying and this and all of those things just create more drama in our relationships."
She added that it was nice to have a year in between shooting Spidey 2 and 3.
"It was nice to have that year because I was really excited to go back to work again. I love working with Sam and coming back to a place where you know everybody which is a good thing because you're confident. You're not afraid to give your opinions on anything like lighting or whatever it is. You're there with your team again. It's a long movie so when you start doing the blue screen things and you're just lying there and reacting to all of these things and these long takes, you feel like you're losing your mind. But, when it comes to the scenes and Sam it's all about that for him. That doesn't feel like I'm making anything less important than this film."
Spider-Man 3 hits theaters on May 4, 2007.
