Seems the Parker family is now complete and everyone with that surname in the film is now cast. Sally Field will be playing Aunt May.
The Oscar-winner is in talks to join the Spider-Man reboot that is ramping up for a December start. It’s reported that she will play Martin Sheen wifey and Peter Parker mother-figure Aunt May.
This is not as perfect a casting as Martin Sheen as Ben Parker, but it could work.
I guess my issue is that I always expected May to be MUCH older. I am not saying Sally Fields is young, or even middle aged… but the granny figure of May will be hard to scratch out of my head.
But they are doing a good job making this NOT that Spider-Man. I just hope it is also a good Spider-Man.
