Last fall, reports circulated that Sony Pictures was planning to expand its "Spider-Man" franchise with a female-led film, and a rumor stated one may be an Aunt May solo film in the vein of "Marvel's Agent Carter." Sony later informed CBR News it was a "silly rumor" with "no validity whatsoever." Nonetheless, for the first time, Sally Field -- who played "Aunt May" in Sony's two "Amazing Spider-Man" movies -- commented on those rumors in an interview with the Huffington Post.
"Aunt May spinoff? And make her the lead? What would you do with her?" Field laughed, "She has no special powers whatsoever. She was a housewife waiting for the kids to come home. I think they did that: It was called 'The Donna Reed Show.'"
