We’re ranking the best Mary Jane Watson actresses in movies and TV. Mary Jane’s first appearance was way back in 1965 in issue #25 of The Amazing Spider-Man. She only had a brief cameo, but it was enough to help her develop into one of the biggest characters in the entire Spider-Man franchise.

Mary Jane Watson has been played by many different actresses over the years. In the mid-90s, Sara Ballantine voiced Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: The Animated Series. Jennifer Hale voiced Mary Jane in 1994's Spider-Man Unlimited and Lisa Loeb took over voice-acting duties in Spider-Man: The Animated Series in 2003.

On the film front, Kirsten Dunst played Mary Jane in the Spider-Man trilogy in the early 2000s, and Zoë Kravitz took on the role in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Who do you think is the best Mary Jane Watson actress of all time?
