Nowadays, it is quite hard to actually name all the Marvel movies that exist out there, if not impossible, however, you can't deny that one of the first superhero movies that stole our hearts (apart from Batman) is Spider-Man, which was premiered back in 2002 and was directed by Sam Reimi.

Back in the day, who was not left speechless with all the stunts, or even enamored of sweet, redhead Mary Jane Watson? Tobey Maguire was the main protagonist as Peter Parker a.k.a Spider-Man while Kirsten Dunst played his love interest, Mary Jane Watson.

Many years have passed and the movie has remained a fan favorite because of its own epicness. It had everything, action, drama, fights, some humor, and even romance. And talking about romance, wouldn't you agree that the Spiderman kiss is one of the most romantic gestures in superhero movies?

In a recent interview with W Magazine, Kirsten Dunst said that her upside-down kiss with Tobey Maguire in Spiderman makes her feel proud, not only because it really is a sweet scene but because of her co-star commitment.

In the interview, Dunst admitted that she did not feel like it would be a kiss to remember because they were having a lot of difficulties and did not enjoy it as the scene made it look like.

“I did not feel like it was a famous kiss because Tobey was... Water was getting up his nose because of the rain, and then he couldn't breathe in the Spider-Man suit, and then... And it just felt very late at night. I didn't think about it that way.”

However, Kirsten Dunst also admitted that Sam Raimi presented her with the scene in a very beautiful way. “But the way it was presented to me, Sam gave me this book of famous kisses, so that made me realize how romantic and special Sam wanted this to be. Even though it wasn't necessarily feeling that way with Tobey hanging upside down.”

In the end, she concluded the interview with very positive thoughts. “Well, I'm proud to be a part of that...Yeah. It looked like a great kiss..”

The Spiderman kiss scene is so epic, that even Tom Holland, the third actor to portray Peter Parker, admitted in an interview with Cinema Blend that it was one of the scenes he would like to recreate. “Oh! I know what it is. I want to go and do the upside-down making out the scene in the rain right now....” Holland said before joking “Jacob, let’s go. Let’s do it,” and Zendaya joked too “Harness up Jacob, you two have fun."
