Earlier today, news broke that another beloved Marvel character is returning for the highly-anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming, with Jon Favreau reprising his role as Happy Hogan, the driver and bodyguard for Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark. With production still under way in Atlanta, it may not be too long before we get our first look at this returning character, but until then, new photos have arrived that give us our first look at Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. The actress made her MCU debut in this summer's Captain America: Civil War alongside her on-screen nephew, Tom Holland.
Just Jared released these photos, which were taken yesterday on the Atlanta set, featuring Tom Holland and Marisa Tomei walking together. No details about this scene were revealed, but this is the first time we've seen her on the set since production started back in June. We don't know for sure how much filming is left, or how big Marisa Tomei's Aunt May role is in this movie.
A few weeks ago, a document leaked that is believed to be the full cast list featuring every actor and the character they play, which surfaced just after director Jon Watts confirmed a few of the character names at Comic-Con. The cast list confirmed that Tony Revolori is playing Flash Thompson, Peter Parker's schoolyard nemesis, with Zendaya playing Michelle, Jacob Batalon playing Ned Leeds and Laura Harrier portraying Liz Allan. While the last name of Zendaya's Michelle wasn't given, some fans believe the character is Michelle Gonzales.
The cast list also revealed that Angourie Rice is playing Betty Brant, who has been rumored to be Peter Parker's love interest along with Bokeem Woodbine playing the villainous Shocker. There had previously been rumors that Zendaya's "Michelle" character was actually Mary-Jane Watson. Other characters revealed on the cast list include Martin Starr as Mr. Harrington and Kenneth Choi as Principal Morita, who some believe is a descendant of the actor's character Jim Morita, one of the Howling Commandos who served under Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Michael Keaton, who is reportedly playing the main villain Vulture, is also part of this burgeoning cast, along with Donald Glover, Michael Barbieri, Abraham Attah, Logan Marshall-Green, Tyne Daly, Michael Mando, Garcelle Beauvais, J.J. Totah, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and Isabella Amara. Jon Watts is directing from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein. Take a look at the latest photos from the Spider-Man: Homecoming set as filming continues in Atlanta on Spider-Man: Homecoming.
