CAIRO – 2 August 2017: Marvel’s new Spiderman, Tom Holland, responded to Kirsten Dunst’s criticism for the movie “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” on Tuesday.
Dunst played the role of Mary Jane in the Marvel 2002, 2004 and 2007 “Spider-Man” films with Tobey Maguire.
In a July interview with “Marie Claire” magazine Dunst remarked, “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?”
In response to her criticism, Holland told Movie ‘n’ Co UK: “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?”
Holland continued: “All I know is I had the greatest time on this movie and I absolutely loved it and, you know, if she doesn’t want to go and see it, I don’t really care. 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.”
The original Spider-Man film trilogy, which came out between 2002 and 2007, was remade by Columbia Pictures for 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man and 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
