Variety reports that Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei is the top choice by Marvel Studios and Sony to play Aunt May in their upcoming reboot of Spider-Man.
The outlet reveals that an offer was made to Tomei last week but that she has yet to officially sign on.
While insiders could not say where things stood in the deal-making process, they have added that an offer was made late last week for the Oscar-winning actress to join Tom Holland, who was recently tapped to play the web-slinging superhero.
Marvel and Sony recently hand-picked Holland to play Spider-Man after months of meetings and screen tests with eager young actors, in addition to selecting “Cop Car” helmer Jon Watts to direct the pic.
