Spider-Man: Homecoming is easily one of the most loved origin films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The second reboot in the last five years and the third reboot when counting Sam Raimi’s trilogy, Homecoming showcases Peter Parker’s struggles to be part of the Avengers team and his life as a teen. It’s a new take for the film franchise and perhaps another fun twist in the recent movie is seen in the closing scene featuring Aunt May as portrayed by Marissa Tomei.
In the last scene, Aunt May discovers the true identity of Spider-Man. That’s not all though. Before cutting to the credits, Tomei had to say “What the fu-.” It wasn’t the full F-bomb though as the movie abruptly cuts to the credits before Tomei was able to complete the word. In an interview with the Huffiington Post, Tomei reveals that this scene was rather hard to pull off.
When it comes to shooting the scene, Tomei comments that “I think I said the whole word, and then they had to fine tune and fine tune.” Basically, the editors had to work a bit harder than usual to make sure that Tomei’s F-word doesn’t fully make it into the film. The hard work paid off though as the scene was fun and all.
The portrayal of Aunt May in Spider-Man: Homecoming is rather special in a couple of ways. The most obvious being the fact that it’s the first time in the movies that Aunt May was portrayed as a younger woman rather than an elderly one. As seen in the closing scene, we also see that Aunt May was instantly informed of Peter Parker’s hidden identity as Spider-Man.
Even in the comics, Aunt May was often kept in the dark about the identity of Spider-Man. This is going to be an interesting take on the web-slinger’s story as we can see how Aunt May’s newfound knowledge will affect the secret life of Peter Parker.
