Spider-Man: No Way Home star Marisa Tomei has said what we’re all thinking: Aunt May should be queer.
Tomei’s May has always been the cool aunt, and now, the actor has revealed how she rallied for the character to be given a girlfriend.
In the Spider-Man Homecoming trilogy, we meet May some time after losing her husband, Uncle Ben. She begins dating Happy Hogan in the second film, Far From Home, but Tomei feels their on-off relationship is one of convenience.
“I really feel that their relationship is more off than on,” she told Geeks of Color. “I think they’re friends…. but they’re stuck together… There’s no one else they can talk to right now [about Peter Parker], they like each other enough, they had their fun, their fling, but they’re still cool.”
