Marisa Tomei Talks About Spider-Man: Homecoming’s F-Bomb

Warning: This article contain's spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Marvel has always tried to keep the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe under a family-friendly banner, but Spider-Man: Homecoming tried to push the envelope just a little bit by dropping the f-word somewhere in the film.

A fun and funny coming-of-age story, Homecoming has been another success for the Marvel universe and everyone loved how Tom Holland's Spider-Man stayed true to his comicbook roots with his quick wit and youthful vigor. However, the film did take a few liberties, which includes making Aunt May years younger than her usual self with Marisa Tomei playing the character and dropping half of a curse word at the very end of the film.


In the comics, Peter Parker's alter ego identity is kept from May for years, however Tomei's version of the character learns about her nephew's secret at the end of Homecoming.

"WHAT THE FUC-" May screams out right before the film cuts to the funky credits scene with the Ramone's Blitzkrieg Bop playing in the background. Now, in an interview with Huffington Post, Tomei reveals how difficult it was for the filmmakers to work on the scene.

"I think I said the whole word, and then they had to fine tune and fine tune."

Looks like director David Watts wanted his F-bomb to come out just perfectly and it worked. Homecoming might be coming-of-age story, but it doesn't mean that the movie can't add be a little bit brassy.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently screening in cinemas.
