More casting news coming in from the rumor mill, from Variety, link provided below. The rumor mill has it that Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei has been offered the role of Aunt May in the upcoming Sony/Marvel Spider-Man project. While Sony and Marvel have not made any confirmation on the casting, an offer was apparently made to Tomei. Even though only an offer has been extended to Tomei. The news that she may be involved in this project makes me more hopeful for the project, and it indicates that Sony made the right move to work with Marvel on the project because Marvel goes after talent. Frankly, Marvel has the weight to pull that talent into their projects that Sony might lack on their own.
