Kirsten Dunst Signs on to Spiderman 4 (and 5?)

September 30, 2008

It's yesterday's news that both Toby Maguire and Sam Raimi have signed on for both Spiderman 4 and 5. But no one really knew whether Kirsten Dunst was down for the next round of web-weaving wackiness. Well, cogitate on this enigma no more: according to MTV, she's down. Unofficially, that is.When asked if this was written in stone, Dunst replied, “I’m not saying anything, I know there’s rumors…” I bet to differ, Ms. Dunst. You have, in fact, said a lot.

Many Spiderman fans were hoping that the fact Dunst wasn't signed when Maguire and Raimi were meant she wasn't going to have anything else to do with the franchise. Those hopes have fizzled as it has become clear that the gang that brought us the failed disaster that was Spiderman 3 will also bring us 4 and 5. Maybe Dunst will take some acting classes between now and then. And become pretty. And talented.
