Marisa Tomei is leading choice for Aunt May in Spider-man movie

July 8th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Ok, we have our Peter Parker/Spider-man and now we may have found the most impotent woman in his life… Aunt May.

Variety are reporting that Marisa Tomei is the current favourite to play May in the upcoming MCU Spider-man movies: “While insiders could not say where things stood in the deal-making process, they said an offer was made late last week for the Oscar-winning actress to join Tom Holland, who was recently tapped to play the webslinging superhero.”

While Tom Holland will debut as Spidey in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, it’s unlikely we’ll see Aunt May until the first standalone movie on July 28, 2017.

We’re not sure we should feel this way about Aunt May…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
