BUT WHAT IF?
If Jake Gyllenhaal had taken over the role of Spidey he would have work alongside his girlfriend Kirsten Dunst on a daily basis. This would have seemed such a delightful thing for the couple to begin with, but over the course of the shoot they would have realised that spending all their time together was about as much fun as getting a hand caught in a car door. Eventually they would have grown to hate and despise each other and by the time it came to the film’s official premiere the not-so happy couple would have refused to even look at each other. This would have made the situation extremely uncomfortable for all concerned and would have caused problems for Spider-man 3. With Dunst and Gyllenhaal unable to be in the same room as each other, it would have been decided that it was best for all around if the story of Spider-man 3 focused on Peter’s growing lust for Aunt May.
