Peter Parker isn’t the only character in the new Spider-Man that’s getting a makeover. Young Tom Holland was announced only weeks ago as the next actor to take on role of the web-slinging superhero. Casting for the new film has continued, as it looks like Marvel and Sony have found their Aunt May.

According to Variety, Oscar-winning actress Marisa Tomei will be taking on the role that was previously played by Sally Field and Rosemary Harris. It looks like Marvel is definitely skewing younger with the new John Hughes-inspired film, and, if Tomei accepts the role, this will be a definite shift in the type of jobs the actress has been known to take, as she usually sticks with smaller indie fare.
