Marvel fans might have thought they’d seen the last of Marisa Tomei‘s May Parker, but the acclaimed actress isn’t ready to hang in the towel just yet. During the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the character met her tragic end at the hands of Willem Dafoe‘s Green Goblin. Her death served as an integral turning point for Tom Holland‘s titular hero, and Aunt May isn’t known for having any super resurrection abilities, so a return in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s main timeline is probably out of the question. Luckily for Tomei, other timelines are exactly the sort of thing the MCU will be focusing on going forward.
While appearing on Jimmy Fallon‘s late night show, the former My Cousin Vinny star was asked about No Way Home‘s exciting multiverse elements. While she admitted to not fully understanding how Marvel’s many universes work, she did state that she would love to use them as an excuse to play May again:
Yeah, I would love to come back and be a part of that. I want to be. There’s history there, too. May Parker hooks up with Ant-Man in one of the – well, I mean she’s a stand-alone character, of course. But there are more avenues to explore.Marisa Tomei
While a quick search didn’t turn up any information on a version of Aunt May getting involved with Ant-Man, it did reveal an issue of Marvel’s What If…? from 1982 where May becomes Ant-Man. Perhaps Tomei could lend her voice to a future episode of What If…? on Disney+, or maybe she already has. Believe it or not, Spider-Man’s mother figure has quite a few alternate variations scattered across the multiverse. So, if not an adaptation of Ant-May, maybe we’ll see a live-action version of that time she became a Herald of Galactus? One can only hope.
