A couple weeks back, both Marvel and Sony found their new Peter Parker: Tom Holland. Now, they may have found their new Aunt May. According to Variety, Marisa Tomei has been cast as the woman who raises Peter Parker, after his parents disappeared, or died, or became S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, or became robots... Yes, it's convoluted, but regardless, Tomei is supposedly the next to play May. She was apparently offered the role late last week.

As of right now, there has been no comment or confirmation from Marvel or Sony about this rumor.

We'll keep you updated as more develops.

Isn't she a bit young? I always picture Aunt May in her 60's.

Apparently Aunt May has a good plastic surgeon.

Kidding, I like the direction they are taking. A younger Peter, a younger May. It will differentiate the movies but they will be still true to the source.

Interesting, I'd never thought there'd be a day when Aunt May is a hottie.

I've loved this woman since My Cousin Vinny came out all those years ago.

First Jarvis gets a hot actor, then Leslie Thompkins on Gotham, now this. 60 is the new hotness.

Exactly. But we can blame the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon for this casting choice. That show is determined to make Aunt May a hottie (or would GILF be a better descriptive? Hmm...)

Marissa Tomei would go a long way to reinforce this new vision of the classic character, IF this is indeed the direction Marvel intends to travel down. But only because she's so yummy (Marissa, that is)!^-^

Considering Peter is 16/17 and Marisa is 50 seems like a nice age gap. Ultimate Aunt May is pretty young in personality even if she is gray haired. This can work.

I remember she was Adam Sandler's girlfriend in Anger Management. Will he became the new Uncle Ben?

She's an incredibly talented actress, who has aged better than almost any star in Hollywood history, and been a crush for me, going on twenty years now. Yeah, this is a damn fine day in my world :)

Honestly, I love this. To have an Aunt May that may not be dead when Peter is old enough to rent a car is great. Peter Parker started his Spiderman career as a late teenager, so to not have grown men portraying him feels refreshing for a new startup. So 50 year old Tomei will age well with the MCU and seems the type to enjoy the Convention circuit.

This is the one, and maybe only, time I'm all for Marvel changing the comic version to match the movie.

I've liked Tomei since I saw her on a Different World, but I'll always picture May as early 50's white hair. Have to see what they do with this movie, maybe they are going for a complete revamp on the whole Spiderman concept.

LOL, well looks like we can all thank Marvel for officially making AILF a thing, and nothing against this casting just thought I'd throw this out there but honestly I thought Sally Field did an excellent job as Aunt May as did Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben.

Works for me, she is a talented actress and if Spideys going to be 15 or 16 I have no issues with his aunt being in her early 50's. Now excuse me I'm going to watch the Wrestler again.

I just don't see it.

I know everyone keeps talking about how hot she is but...why? I never saw Aunt May as a sexy character and I honestly think this will take away from the story rather than add to it.
