Marisa Tomei Reveals She Wanted To Give Aunt May A Girlfriend Played By SPIDER-MAN Producer Amy Pascal

Marisa Tomei recently made her return to the MCU in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Marvel Studios' take on Aunt May is considerably different from her previous counterparts.

As it turns out, though, May could have been even more different than previous iterations, as, early on in the development of Spider-Man's MCU movies, Tomei proposed the idea of giving May a girlfriend.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Producer Amy Pascal Explains How Past Actors Were Convinced To Return

It's clear that one of the cornerstones of making "Spider-Man: No Way Home" was that several of the hero's villains from past incarnations of the character return to fight another battle. But how do you convince an actor to give time to a cameo of their past character — especially in a superhero tentpole film where it could end up being a waste of that actor's time?
