This post contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming so if you haven’t seen it yet, web-shoot on over to a theater near you!

It’s safe to say Spider-Man: Homecoming takes Aunt May where no previous film has gone before: Younger, hotter, and *finally* with a little more to do. In previous iterations of Spider-Man, Aunt May spends most of her little time on screen mourning the death of her husband, Ben, and worrying about Peter. While, in Homeoming, May’s screen time revolves around Peter, it’s less aimless worrying and more parenting a fifteen-year-old who is seriously in over his head.

The end of Homecoming breaks tradition as well, as a careless Peter is parading around his room in his Spider-Man costume WITH THE DOOR OPEN. If that’s not a recipe for disaster, we’re not sure what is.

And because she’s *not* totally clueless, it’s safe to assume that Aunt May now knows that her nephew is Spider-Man.

HelloGiggles recently sat down with Marisa Tomei to talk Spider-Man: Homecoming and where she hopes to see Aunt May in the next few films. The My Cousin Vinny and Wrestler actress told us that she loves that Peter’s Spider-Man secret was revealed earl, because there’s now so much more to unpack — she’s hoping it could mean more screen time for May.


As we learn during the movie, Aunt May is *not* a huge fan of Tony Stark, and she makes that clear to Peter. Tomei told us that she’d love a scene with Downey in a future film, where she gets to lay into Tony about what he’s been letting her nephew do around NYC (and the world).

We think Marisa Tomei might be our favorite Aunt May, and we can’t wait to see more of her in future Spider-Man films!
