Marisa Tomei in Spider-Man: Homecoming

Having Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) know Peter Parker's (Tom Holland) secret identity is such a game changer in the MCU, I wondered if director Jon Watts, who also co-wrote the script, had to fight with Marvel to allow him to do it. As it turns out, this was a goal of Marvel's for some time, and the reasoning behind it -- according to Watts -- went like this:

The goal behind this movie is to just come up with moments and things that people have never seen before, and people can't believe that just happened. And that was one where, as soon as the idea came up, it was like, 'Oh yeah, we gotta do that.' ... It's definitely a thing where, well, now we have to figure that out! [Laughs]

Jon Watts likens this moment to the final shot in Iron Man, and he recalls being an audience member for that movie and turning to people in the theater when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) reveals his identity, and saying to his fellow patrons. "Did they just do that? How are they going to move on from that?" And he hopes to have that same problem for Spider-Man 2, if he's able to come back for it. He tells me that he wants to come back, stating, "I feel like we're just getting started."
