Before Spider-Man: Homecoming came out, original MJ actress Kirsten Dunst had dissed on the rebooted Spider-Man and claimed that the Raimi films were still the best. The new Peter Parker, Tom Holland was asked to comment on what Dunst had said, and he believes that she's entitled to her own opinion.
Speaking to Movie'n'co UK, Holland says:
"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 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."
I think it's the best way to react to a negative comment, especially from someone who had been in the franchise since the beginning. Though Dunst might have been too dismissing of this new trilogy, it's nice to know that Holland knows how to handle some harsh criticism.
Now, I understand how relevant Raimi's Spider-Man movies have been to the genre of superhero films, but looking back, they were actually filled with a lot of corny dialogue and cheesy storylines. It's just that, superhero movies have changed a lot since 2002, and Homecoming was one of those films that actually tried to bring something new to the franchise.
Get off your high horse, MJ.
