Marisa Tomei “Disappointed” about Scene that Didn't Make Theatrical Cut!

After winning over film critics, Spider-Man: Homecoming continued on to impress moviegoers, as well. The movie’s box office performance in its opening weekend indicated that people fell in love with Tom Holland’s teenage Peter Parker.

In addition to the teenage superhero, we have the youthful Aunt May. Marvel and Sony brought in Marisa Tomei to redefine the character. In previous films, the character was played as an elderly woman by Rosemary Harris and Sally Field.

Tomei's portrayal of the “unusually attractive aunt” hasn't disappointed, but she is a bit disappointed about a Homecoming scene that didn’t make the final cut. The Academy Award-winning actress told Huffington Post that the scene, which was part of the original script, showed that May Parker could be a hero, too:

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 May. 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 shaking inside because of this whole crisis that had happened in the city. I’m kind of fibbing to him, and he’s fibbing to me, and we’re living in this house together, and it was a very interesting setup. I was quite disappointed that it wasn’t in there.

Considering how well-received Spider-Man: Homecoming has been, Marvel and Sony most likely have no regrets. But they could provide Tomei with a scene of similar significance in the sequel, and even let it survive beyond the editing room.
