Be wary of potential spoilers from Captain America: Civil War, but it seems like everyone and their moms are in this next Marvel movie — or should we say aunts? According to the latest report, one of the recently cast characters in the MCU will be making her debut in Civil War before going on to feature in the standalone movies. And that character is said to be Aunt May.
Marvel cast the incredible Marisa Tomei as Peter Parker’s aunt and legal guardian, and Heroic Hollywood reports that the actress secretly filmed scenes in Civil War before production wrapped. Rumblings regarding a potential Aunt May appearance began back in July, and this is further confirmation. Recently, an Atlanta-based TV station revealed furniture and props being used for a scene taking place in Spider-Man’s bedroom, and HH predicts Tomei will make her appearance there.
It’s not a complete shocker that Tomei will at the very least cameo in Civil War, considering this is also where Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will make his grand entrance into the MCU. We've heard a great deal about what we may or may not be getting from his character, but the latest reports said the actor popped up on the Germany set. He’s also said to go up against Captain America in the film, further hinting at a larger role for the character. With such large responsibilities heaved onto his teenaged shoulders, he’s going to need some adult supervision — or, at the very least, someone to comfort him while this whole war among heroes is being waged.
With Marisa Tomei’s presence, this film is reaching closer and closer to an Avengers-level scale. In addition to her and Holland, Civil War stars Chris Evans (Cap), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Paul Bettany (Vision), Frank Grillo (Crossbones), Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter), Daniel Bruhl (Baron Zemo), Martin Freeman (reportedly a politician), and more. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo proved with The Winter Soldier that they are more than equipped to tackle the cast, although I can’t help but think back to Joss Whedon and his experience directing Avengers: Age of Ultron. Much like with that film, Civil War is not just a Captain America movie, but one that helps further establish the world of the Phase Three movies.
Filming recently wrapped and the stars partied it up in Leipzig, Germany, as revealed by photos posted to social media. Civil War is set for release on May 6, 2016.
