Spider-Man: Homecoming is already a major box office hit, earning an estimated $117 million in its opening weekend, but according to one of the film’s stars there is one special scene that fans missed out on.
During an interview with Huffington Post, Marisa Tomei, who plays Aunt May in the new Spider-Man film, revealed that if you like her character now, you would’ve loved her even more based on one scene that was cut from the final product.
“There were also things in the original, which I signed up for, which weren’t there when we shot it,” Tomei told Huffington Post when talking about the improvised lines and cut scenes fans missed out on.
Tomei explained that there was originally a scene between her character and a young girl in the neighborhood, which would have shown Aunt May’s heroism and linked her with her nephew, Peter Parker (Tom Holland), even more.
“There was something going on in the neighborhood, and there was a little girl in distress, and I saved her, and Peter saw me save her, so you kind of saw that he got part of his ethics from her,” Tomei told HuffPo.
Tomei explained that the scene paved way for an interesting setup between her and Peter by showing how they were both keeping secrets from each other, and that she was “quite disappointed” when she realized it was cut out of the script.
Make that two of us! Thank goodness, Spider-Man: Homecoming has enough action and excitement to makeup for this missed scene.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently in theaters.
