In an interview with Glamour, Elizabeth Banks revealed that she was passed over as Tobey Maguire’s love interest in the movie due to her age. Instead, Kirsten Dunst was cast as Mary Jane Watson.

“I screen-tested for the role of Mary-Jane Watson in the first Spider-Man movie, opposite Tobey Maguire … Tobey and I are basically the same age and I was told I was too old to play her. I’m like, ‘Oh, OK, that’s what I’ve signed up for’.”
