Variety is reporting that Marvel and Sony have found the actress they want to play Aunt May opposite Tom Holland‘s Peter Parker. It certainly isn’t what we were expecting, but if this Variety source is correct, Marisa Tomei is a fabulous choice for a younger Aunt May to match the younger Peter Parker.
There’s been no comment from Sony or Marvel yet, and Tomei hasn’t used her Twitter account since January of this year, but they could very well be in talks. Variety’s source says that Marvel and Sony extended an offer last week, so if true that means the ball is in Tomei’s court.
She’s a wonderful actress that can handle the heavy drama and light comedic side equally well.
What do you think of this choice?
