Though the 29-year-old actress won't appear in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man (starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone), Dunst tells MovieFone she believes fans will always hold the trilogy with Tobey Maguire in high regard.

"I feel what we did was special and I don't think that goes away," Dunst explains. "There's a new generation of kids that will watch these and this will be theirs. These are the people they'll identify with as Spider-Man."
