Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei is considered by Marvel and Sony to be the top choice to play Aunt May in the new “Spiderman” reboot that’s in the works. While sources could not say where things stood as far as the deal-making process, it is reported that an offer was made late last week for Tomei to join young upstart Tom Holland, who was recently chosen as the third actor ever to play the webslinger. Tomei can next be seen in the movie Trainwreck and she is currently filming The Big Short with Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling.
Along with Tomei possibly joining it is confirmed that Jon Watts will direct and that they are currently looking for a writer for the screenplay. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal will produce the superhero picture which is set to hit theaters on July 28th 2017. However before that Tom Holland is expected to first appear in Captain America: Civil War in a cameo appearance as Peter Parker.
