Marisa Tomei Will Star In As Many Spider-Man Movies As Marvel Wants To Make

2 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The performance of Academy Award winning actress Marisa Tomei in the role of Aunt May is undoubtedly one of the highlights of Spider-Man: Homecoming, so it’s no surprise to see that her promotion of the movie is dominated by requests for confirmation of her continued involvement in future instalments.

In a recent conversation with Variety, for example, she was asked how many more Spider-Man movies she would make, and here’s what she had to say:

“As many as they want. There will be a lot of surprises because the end of the film is a new twist. That leaves a creative door wide open. It leads to some really exciting possibilities.”

And this is really the essence of the response to her portrayal of the beloved comic book character – curiosity, and a need for more. It’s something that has radiated from the film in a very organic way, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming concept art features a Scarlet Spider-influenced alternate costume

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already seen a batch of unused concept art for Spider-Man: Homecoming featuring a Superior Spider-Man-influenced suit [check it out here], and now artist Ryan Meinerding has shared another early design for the webslinger featuring an alternate costume resembling Ben Reilly’s Scarlet Spider; take a look below…

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. »

Marisa Tomei on Playing Aunt May in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming,’ Sequels and Hollywood Sexism

23 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After one Oscar win, two nominations, and roles in more than 60 movies, Marisa Tomei needs no introduction. Yet playing Aunt May in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” has changed the energy around her. She noticed it on the day of her interview with Variety when a disdainful contractor in her Manhattan building in the West Village suddenly offered a welcoming smile. “He pulled out a picture for me to sign for his son,” Tomei recalled, with a laugh.

With nearly $500 million in box office receipts worldwide, “Spider-Man” is one of the biggest hits of the year. The reboot of the comic-book series features Tom Holland as a high-school web slinger. And his Aunt May is hipper, too, than the version played by Rosemary Harris in the 2002 tentpole. Tomei spoke to Variety about not watching other “Spider-Men” films and how she found the character.

How has the reception been to your “Spider-Man?”

I think the most gratifying has been the reaction »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Almost Featured The “With Great Power…” Line

20 July 2017 9:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“With great power, comes great responsibility.” We all know the line, as it’s one of the most iconic phrases in superhero history. In fact, it was used so well in Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man movie, and echoed in the next two installments of the trilogy, that both The Amazing Spider-Man films and Spider-Man: Homecoming steered clear of it. As it turns out, however, the recent Marvel movie originally included an irreverent reference to it.

Speaking to Yahoo!, screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein revealed that they cut the line from an earlier draft, but here’s when it would have featured:

“At the end when Happy (Jon Favreau) is in the boy’s room in school we had him say, ‘Oh yeah, Tony wanted me to tell you, ‘With great power comes… something, I forgot.’ It was a little too meta.”

Honestly, it’s too bad that they cut this, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming almost featured the “With Great Power…” line

20 July 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Uncle Ben was entirely absent from Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man reboot, screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have revealed that an early draft of the script for Spider-Man: Homecoming would have featured a nod to Ben’s iconic “With great power comes great responsibility” line.

“At the end when Happy [Jon Favreau] is in the boy’s room in school we had him say, ‘Oh yeah, Tony wanted me to tell you, “With great power comes… something, I forgot,”‘” Goldstein tells Yahoo Movies. “It was a little too meta.”

Perhaps we’ll get to see Uncle Ben passing on his wisdom in a flashback in the sequel, which currently has director Jon Watts in talks to return.

Jon Watts in talks to direct Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel

19 July 2017 2:44 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This probably won’t come as too much of a surprise given the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man: Homecoming, but THR is reporting that Jon Watts is now officially in talks with Marvel and Sony to return to the director’s chair for the as-yet-untitled sequel.

The Homecoming sequel is already earmarked for release on July 5th, 2019, meaning it will launch Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has previously revealed that Spidey is the perfect character to launch the next wave of Marvel movies, and that the plot will explore how Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is affected by the events of Avengers: Infinity War as he returns to high school for his junior year.

Watts had previously directed the horror film Clown and indie thriller Cop Car before making the leap to blockbusters with Homecoming.

Jon Watts Enters Talks To Helm Spider-Man: Homecoming Sequel

19 July 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like Jon Watts’ tenure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will span beyond 2017 after all.

The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that the Spider-Man: Homecoming director has officially entered talks to helm the as-yet-untitled sequel. Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Marisa Tomei are all expected to return for Homecoming 2, which currently has its crosshairs placed on July 5th, 2019.

If you’ve been keeping a close eye on the McU slate, you’ll know that that date places Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 after both Avengers: Infinity War and the fourth, untitled Avengers movie, which won’t instigate the McU reboot as initially thought. What we do know is that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige wants to incorporate a previously unused villain into Peter Parker’s next solo outing – think Mysterio, Mister Negative and/or Scorpion – while there have also been rumblings that Homecoming 2 will usher in the next incarnation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

Why Marisa Tomei Is Much More Than A ‘Hot Aunt’ In ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

19 July 2017 8:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Spider-Man: Homecoming” has been earning rave review from critics and fans alike, stealing the top spot at the box office on its opening weekend, and raking in over $154 million during its first week in theaters. No one has really captured both sides of Peter Parker’s personality quite as succinctly as Tom Holland, who plays the character like a plucky Queens kid that just feels right. But the new movie contains another notable character shift: Aunt May, now played by Marisa Tomei.

This wasn’t the Aunt May fans might remember from the comics — a sweet old woman keen on cooking and housekeeping, her collar buttoned high, her silver hair pulled back into a matronly chignon.

Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters discuss original plan for The Vulture

17 July 2017 4:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Spider-Man: Homecoming spoilers follow…

Having originally been earmarked for Sam Raimi’s abandoned Spider-Man 4, Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. The Vulture, finally made his big screen debut this month in Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and chatting to Yahoo screenwriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley have revealed how they originally envisioned their take on the character.

“Once we started talking about Vulture, it was clear that the version in the comics wouldn’t do, where he was this bald old man,” said Goldstein, revealing that they chose the Vulture from a possible 40 characters. “It just never felt terribly scary on film to us. So we thought, ‘All right, let’s make him more of a middle-aged guy.‘”

Daley went on to state that the original plan was to have the Vulture as a science teacher at Peter’s school: “He was still stealing from Damage Control, but »

Marisa Tomei describes deleted Spider-Man: Homecoming scene featuring Peter Parker and Aunt May

11 July 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you felt like there wasn’t much Aunt May in Spider-Man: Homecoming, you’re not alone in that thinking. Actually, there appears to be a fairly crucial scene to the dynamic regarding the relationship between Peter Parker and Aunt May nixed. Speaking to The Huffington Post, Marisa Tomei described a scene which drew parallels to the lives of the two:

“There was something going on in the neighborhood, and there was a little girl in distress, and I saved her, and Peter saw me save her, so you kind of saw that he got part of his ethics from her … Then I come home, and I don’t even tell him that that’s what happened, and, of course, there’s all this stuff that he’s not telling me. So he’s like, ‘How was your day?’ And I’m like, ‘It was fine,’ but really I was »
