We may have found the one Marvel character who won't be in "Avengers: Infinity War." But the emphasis is on "may" -- and not just because of her name.
Marisa Tomei talked to ComicBook about her role as Aunt May in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and, at the end of the video interview, the site asked if she'll be in "Infinity War." She replied, "I didn't get my invitation yet," suggesting Aunt May won't be in the third "Avengers" movie. There's really no need for her to play coy, if she is involved, so it sounds like she might be out.
ComicBook noted that there are still a few weeks left to "Infinity War" filming, so there's time for her to film a cameo. However, as Screen Rant point out, if Aunt May is not in the movie, "it will be the first time a live-action film that features Spider-Man doesn't include Aunt May as well."
Speaking of Spider-Man, his "Homecoming" movie -- which will feature Aunt May -- is coming out July 7, and we know there will be more sequels ahead. Tom Holland's Peter Parker/Spider-Man is confirmed for "Avengers: Infinity War," and Marvel boss Paul Feige told Fandango he'd have about as much screen time as he did in his debut in "Captain America: Civil War."
Fandango had asked Feige and "Spider-Man" producer Amy Pascal whether Tom Holland's Spider-Man would have a bigger role to play in "Infinity War." Here's the response:
"I think it might feel bigger a little bit because of 'Homecoming' and because of what people know from it, but it's about on par with ['Civil War']," Feige said. When [Fandango] asked whether any of the other cast members of 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' would be joining Tom Holland in 'Infinity War,' Feige was vague, as he tends to be, but teased that it's a very real possibility. "There's a pretty big crew already in those movies, but you might keep an eye out," he said. Pascal then added with a smile, "Yeah, you never know."
It sounds like other "Homecoming" characters probably will be in "Infinity War" -- which is meant to feature around 62 Marvel characters ... but not Aunt May?
