Marisa Tomei in talks to play Aunt May in new ‘Spider-Man’



Well this is certainly an interesting piece of news. Oscar winner Marisa Tomei is following in the footsteps of fellow Oscar winner Sally Field and Rosemary Harris in tackling the role of Aunt May in the new Spider-Man franchise. According to Variety, an offer went out to the actress last week. As you see above it’s not a shock that a respected actress would take on the part but it is interesting to note that in each set of movies Aunt May has gotten progressively younger (~20 years each time). Not that that means anything just something to note.

Are you excited to see Tomei in this film?
