Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man gained traction as it hit the cinemas back in the 2000s and aided in reforming the superhero movie genre. 

Among the most unforgettable scenes in the movie was the iconic kiss scene between Mary-Jane Watson and Peter Parker, who was hanging upside down from a web. As of late, Raimi has recounted how he attempted to help actress Kirsten Dunst get ready for it. 

Raimi told Rolling Stone that he handed Dunst a scrapbook containing famous kiss scenes from different movies in the cinema. 

“I just wanted to let her know that it was a very special moment for the movie, and I wanted to communicate it in some way that some moments can be remembered for a long, long time if they’re done right,” he explained. 

“I just wanted to gear her up, to let her know that she’s going to be great in this and that I wanted some of her Kirsten Dunst magic in that moment.” 

Coast-to-coast, he elaborated his contentment with the scene’s turnout, credits to the performance of Dunst and co-actor Tobey Maguire. 

“I think, once we had that meeting, she turned her head around to it and put on her performance magic, which Tobey did, too. They really made something special,” added Raimi. 

While the Spider-Man trilogy made by Raimi concluded in 2007, Maguire’s reprisal of the role in Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home has ignited a broad demand from fans for an additional installment of the film saga, with a few making appeals for Spider-Man 4. 

Recently, Raimi conveyed his inclination to work with the original cast again and went over the top to suggest that Multiverse of Madness might make it happen. 

“Anything is possible … in the Marvel universe, any team-ups. I love Tobey. I love Kirsten Dunst. I think all things are possible,” the 62-year-old filmmaker said. 

But he did clarify that at the moment, there is no story nor plan for Spider-Man 4, adding that it’s unsure “if Marvel would be interested in that right now.”
