In news that makes me feel really old, Variety is reporting that Marisa Tomei has been cast as Aunt May in the next Spider-Man movie. As if Sally Field wasn’t young enough in the last two. It makes sense, as Tom Holland is playing a much younger Peter Parker in the films going forward.
Sam Raini cast Rosemary Harris who was 75 years old at the time, and actually looked quite a bit like the comic version of the character, while Sally Field was only 68 in the last two movies, but Mrisa Tomei just turned 50 which seems awfully young for the role to me.
Variety’s sources say an offer was made last week, but haven’t said how far along the deal making process is. Sony and Marvel are keeping quiet on the subject.
