According to Variety, Oscar-winning actress Marissa Tomei has been cast as ‘Aunt May’ in Marvel Studio’s and Sony Picture’s untitled Spider-Man reboot. While the deal hasn’t been completed just yet, the report reveals that an offer was made late last week for the actress to star alongside Tom Holland, who was recently cast as the wall-crawler.
Details about her role are still kept under wraps, but the site has an update on the film. The two studios are currently looking for a writer, but the main priority right now is to find a cast who will sign up for multiple movies before shooting commences next year.
