Marisa Tomei, the actress who portrayed Aunt May in the most recent installation of the Spider-Man franchise “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” said during an interview with Geeks of Color that she lobbied to rewriter her character as being in a gay relationship.
The woke actress said during the interview that “I felt that May – maybe she should just be with a woman because Ben is gone.” The Oscar winning actress added that she believed Amy Pascal would have been a good fit for the role of Aunt May’s girlfriend.
Tomei claimed that she hoped to change the character’s nature without drawing too much direct attention to it: “I’ll just be in a scene and you’ll be over there. And I’ll just be like ‘Hey!’ It’ll just be a subtle thing.”
Though some fanatics on social media where supportive of the idea, Tomei’s suggestion was largely unpopular amongst fans.
Entertainer Eric July mocked the idea on Twitter, calling Tomei a “Hollywood brainlet” who had no respect for the characters in the franchise.
Novelist, comic book creator, and YouTube influencer Jon Del Arroz was one of the first on the scene to slam efforts by Hollywood elites to ruin the franchise with woke nonsense. He applauded the final release of the film for sticking to the Spider-Man classic elements, but had scathing remarks for actors like Tomei who tried to “stick a middle finger at you, the fan.” He said “That’s what [Hollywood elites] do every single time… no respect for any of the creations before… they just want to subvert… destroy everything they touch.”
Del Arroz makes a fine point of it. In recent years, the Marvel franchise has manipulated characters into LGBT representatives. Last year, the comic company declared that Peter Quill (Star-Lord) from Guardians of the Galaxy is a bisexual. Similarly, both the publisher and studio gave the same treatment to Thor’s Valkyrie, and as recently as October, the studio debuted Phastos, an entirely gay superhero. Marvel’s “Eternals” which featured the homosexual hero was an absolute box office bomb.
By contrast, the most recent Spider-Man installation, which steered clear of ‘social justice warrior’ influence, broke box office records and became the second highest-grossing U.S. debut in history.
