Is Sony Dumb Enough to Make an Aunt May Movie?


aunt-may-asmThere are a couple of Spider-Man storylines you want to avoid if you want fans to be happy with your movie. One is the disastrous “One More Day” nightmare that made fans drop the book in droves and curse the name of Joe Quesada, when he retconned the Peter/MJ marriage following Civil War. The other is “Trouble”, which was a Mark Millar story that said that Peter was actually the son of Aunt May.

Now Latino Review is claiming that Sony may be planning a young Aunt May movie along the lines of that hated “Trouble” storyline:

Yes, an Aunt May movie. A movie about Aunt May as a youth, before she was shouldered with the responsibility of raising Peter Parker. The target mood is some sort of espionage story in the vein of AMC’s Mad Men, which sounds like a way of saying “classier Agent Carter” without name-dropping Marvel’s upcoming series.

Then again, this is Latino Review who famously proclaimed that Avengers 3 would be based on “World War Hulk” when it’s another major war that the third movie is based on… Of course now that that has been debunked they’ve deleted their original story, which resided at this URL.
