Recreate Spider-Man's memorable kiss at Warner Bros Studios in Burbank.

The most memorable kiss in the movies? Spider-Man and Mary Jane's in an alley in New York City. Or rather, Warner Bros Studios in Burbank.
Reality/Fiction kiss of Spider-man and Mary Jane

Spider-Man and Mary Jane kiss each other at Warner Bros Studios in Burbank…

Call “the Upside Down Kiss”, it is probably the most romantic, spectacular and memorable kiss in cinema.

Reminder of the situation. Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) is the friendly spider of the neighborhood, thwarting many robberies and other assaults. But his favorite damsel in distress is Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst). This obsession is not without explanation. Peter Parker, the alter ego of the Weaver, has been in love with “MJ” since childhood. Neighbor in life and in high school, romance seems to go only one way. One night, as the superhero is about to turn his heels after one of their discussions, he sees a small gang of thugs heading towards Mary Jane. Putting on his mask, the vigilante skillfully keeps the criminals away, saving his sweetheart from an impending attack. To thank her saviour, she delicately lifts her mask, without revealing the identity of the Monte in the air, and embraces him tenderly under a torrential rain.

Sublime as can be wished for, the scene was nevertheless trying for Tobey Maguire. In an interview, the actor confided that raindrops were running down his nostrils and he could only breathe intermittently in the corner of Kirsten Dunst’s mouth. Even knowing this, one cannot help but dream about it.

A sequence to reproduce

This mythical sequence is regularly taken up by many lovers, wishing to reproduce the performance. But for total immersion, it is best to go to the actual location of the filming. Although the action is supposed to take place in New York, this scene was filmed in Burbank, California. To be more specific, at Warner Bros. Studios… Located on Warner Boulevard since 1926, the studio, with 35 sets, hosts multiple shoots of all kinds. Among the feature films immortalized here, Batman Forever, Million Dollar Baby or Ghostbusters 2 are among the chosen ones.

To recreate the different atmospheres, some districts are dedicated to a theme or a city. For New York, Hennessy Street is the place to be for filmmakers. Walking on this stage is like being in an episode of Sex and the City, in The Karate Kid Part II or Annie. Anyway, it’s biting the Big Apple in the middle of the Golden State.
