The consensus across the internet is well known that the Spiderman reboot movie were less than good. And now one of the major characters in the reboot franchise is throwing some shade at the part itself. Legendary actress Sally Field seems to be happy that the franchise is being rebooted and is no longer involved in the web-head’s life.
During an appearance on the Howard Stern Show, Field let it be known that the experience of playing one of comics favortite extended family members was not what she had hoped for.
“Not especially. It’s not my kind of movie. But my friend Laura Ziskin was the producer, and we knew it would be her last film, and she was my first producing partner, and she was a spectacular human.”
Ziskin passed away, sadly, in 2011 after a battle with cancer. Field went on to play Aunt May in the follow up The Amazing Spiderman 2 in 2014, a role that she says was hard to bring to life.
“Not a great deal. Because it’s really hard to find a three dimensional character in it, and you work it as much as you can, but you can’t put ten pounds of shit in a five pound bag. You have to try to make it as logical a performance as you possibly can. Andrew is such a lovely, lovely, actor, so we found a relationship in who we were, and that was fun.”
Hopefully, if they bring Aunt May into any new Spiderman movies they can make her more than just a sound board for Peter Parker, but more his heart and soul. But who knows? Now that Sony and Marvel are playing nice, maybe we can get another wonderful run at Aunt May
