We’re just getting more and more excited for the new Spider-Man movie over here! Last month, it was announced that Tom Holland would play Peter Parker/Spidey, and now, sources say it’s possible Marisa Tomei is joining the cast.
According to Variety, a source claims that the Academy Award winner is their first choice to play Aunt May. For those of you who don’t know a lot about the comics, Aunt May raised Peter Parker along with Uncle Ben. No, we’re definitely not talking about rice. These seem to just be rumors for now. Sony and Marvel haven’t spoken about Tomei in that role.
Insiders claim that last week, the studio made Tomei an offer. They handpicked Holland to play the titular character in June. Additionally, the reboot will be directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car). The studio is still looking for another screenwriter to join Watts.
How would you feel about Tomei playing Aunt May?
