Marvel and Sony have unofficially cast Aunt May in the 2017 Spider-Man reboot and it is not exactly who you are expecting. She has had an impressive filmography throughout the years including such films as My Cousin Vinny, The Wrestler and In the Bedroom. That's right, it is Marisa Tomei.
Anybody who is familiar with the story of Peter Parker knows that Aunt May is the most important person is Peter's life after his parents left him as a child and his Uncle Ben was murdered. Obviously Marvel and Sony needed this casting to be ideal to fill those big shoes and they believe to have found it in Marisa Tomei.
Marisa apparently received the offer last week sometime and if the deal is finalized, she will be the third and youngest actress to grace the big screen in the role at age 50. Her incarnation of the character will, undoubtedly, will be based on the Ultimate universe's take on the character which is much younger than the Earth-616 version. It will be a long 2 year wait to see her and wall-crawling, web-swinging nephew hit the big screen in their own film and hopefully, it'll be worth the wait.
