Marisa Tomei Talks Uncle Ben’s Impact On ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

Marisa Tomei Spider-Man Aunt MayAlthough Uncle Ben won’t make an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming, star Marisa Tomei (Aunt May) says the character will still impact both Aunt May and Peter Parker (Tom Holland).

While speaking with Screen Rant, Tomei touched on Peter and May’s dynamic.

Well he’s playing it younger and he’s about 15 in this film. He’s in high school and so I think all the characters are a little bit younger. We’re really picking up — in Captain America, we really talked about the backstory, I mean the recent back story of losing Uncle Ben and now we’re kind of moving forward as a duo. We’re the real dynamic duo.

Even though May and Peter are moving forward after losing Ben, his loss still brings them together and shapes their interactions.

I think there’s a shared understanding of what we’ve both been through, and it makes us very reliant on each other, and watch out for each other, and really enjoy each other as well. She’s got to be sure he’s still having fun in the midst of all his studies. Even though he’s so capable and has so much potential as a student and as a protege of Stark Industries. But he also has got to get out there and have a party.

Not having to watch Uncle Ben die yet again is certainly a welcome change, but it’s still good to see that the filmmakers and writers wanted to honor his spirit and that part of Peter Parker’s backstory.

Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017. The film features a cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Robert Downey Junior as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Zendaya Coleman as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Tony Revolori as “Flash” Thompson, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Harold “Happy” Hogan, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes (Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz (Shocker), and Michael Chernus as Phineas Mason (Tinkerer).

10 Superhero Teams Too Powerful For Their Own Good

Previous1 of 12

Powerful-Heroes-Cover-ImageThis past week, those of us who are both superhero fans and basketball fans, got to see the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA finals, getting Kevin Durant his first championship ring. Those who criticized him joining the Warriors for the sake of the security of gaining a championship have a pretty good argument (but Lebron did the same thing when he took his talents to South Beach a few years ago). An even better reference for us superhero fans: Spider-Man joined the Avengers eventually for the security of being on a “championship team” over the years in the comics, even though he was more successful when on his own. Some would say that the Warriors were not a regular team, but a “superhero team” as they (like the Yankees) stacked their team with athletes too good for their own good.

Ok, enough about sports, but this makes you think about teams of superheroes in comics/movies that are unnecessarily overpowered. It’s to the point that some teams are just too strong for their own good. How could they be defeated when they are literally the strongest people in the world (or even the galaxy)? Some of these members of these teams are literal gods and undefeatable on their own, let alone teaming up with heroes that are equally if not more powerful than they are. Here are a few superhero teams that are just too powerful for their own good. Click Next to take a look….
