Multiple reports are coming out that Oscar-winning actress, Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny, The Wrestler), is in talks to play Aunt May in Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures’ stand alone Spider-Man film. Variety is reporting “the outlet reveals that an offer was made to Tomei last week but that she has yet to officially sign on. They also reveal that Marvel and Sony are hoping to round out the cast for the film, in order to craft a solid shooting schedule, before officially hiring a writer for the project.” Continue reading Marisa Tomei Offered Role of Aunt May in Marvel’s Spider-Man

Is this our next Spider-Man? Back in January an agreement was met between Marvel Studios and Sony to “share” the Spider-Man character and ever since then Marvel has been on the hunt for the next actor who will star in their tentpole franchise.
