Spider-Man: Homecoming will not only be the titular hero’s second appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the film will also feature the return of Aunt May after she made her MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War. One of the most important characters in Peter Parker’s life, this younger version of the character will be portrayed by Marisa Tomei, who recently revealed that she would be willing to return in the role for a standalone Aunt May film during an interview with Screen Rant.
When asked if she would be willing to appear in an Aunt May spy film, Tomei was surprised to hear that such a film had reportedly been in development:
“What? You guys know way more than I do. First of all, it took her forever to find out about Peter, so I don’t know what level of spy she would be, but I would like the idea of a big magnifying glass. Did they really, did you really hear that?”
When the interviewer confirmed the reports, Tomei replied, “I’m all for it.”

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Directed by Jon Watts, the film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice, Abraham Attah, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in theaters on July 7, 2017.
