Variety is reporting that Marvel and Sony are going to go with actress Marisa Tomei to play Aunt May in the new version of Spider-Man. She would play opposite the recently cast Tom Holland. Previously Aunt May has been played by veteran actresses like Sally Field and Rosemary Harris… Harris was 74 when the first Tobey Maguire Spider-Man debuted and Field was 66 when the Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield was released. Tomei is currently 50, a much younger Aunt May to go with a much younger Peter Parker… Holland is 19.
Marvel and Sony have not commented on the rumor.
