Peter Parker and Aunt May reunite in a new set video from Spider-Man: Far From Home. One of the most important people in Peter's life is his aunt. So, for the MCU reboot, the studios brought Marisa Tomei on board to play the character. She didn't have a huge role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but Tomei and Tom Holland have quickly established a great dynamic. When the first solo movie came to an end, Aunt May discovered that her nephew is Spider-Man - a moment Kevin Feige has always wanted to bring to the big screen.
Even though Spider-Man has appeared since then in Avengers: Infinity War, fans have yet to see the fallout of May's discovery. Peter's still obviously being a hero, so nothing major must've changed, but her knowledge of Peter's other life will change the relationship to some degree. Fans will get to see how they interact in Far From Home once Spider-Man is un-dusted, and a set video finally reunites them.
Reddit user Jorgy_Morgy uploaded a video from the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home that shows Peter Parker and Aunt May reunite. The scene was filmed at London Stanstead airport, but the user says it was made to look like the airport from Newark. If this is the case, then this could be Peter returning home after his summer vacation.
As seen in the video, Peter is rushing to find and hug an emotional Aunt May. With this possibly being Peter's return home at the end of the movie, what is the cause of both being so emotional isn't clear. It may just be because they're extremely close, or it could signal just how tough of a trip overseas proved to be. Since Peter will be active as Spidey while in international territories, there will undoubtedly be footage captured of whatever threats he faces whether those be Mysterio, Chameleon, or Hydro-Man. And since May is aware that it is Peter doing these heroic acts, she may just be so happy to know he's back safe and sound.
Unless Far From Home spends a good deal of time with May and a resurrected Peter prior to him taking his trip, there's a fair chance that Aunt May isn't featured much in the sequel. She's not accompanying him and his friends on their summer trip, but he could always stay in contact with her to discuss his struggles. Only she and Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) know about his secret life so far, so he'll have to talk to someone (other than his suit's A.I. Karen) about his problems. If that isn't Aunt May, then at least we have this potentially emotional reunion between the two to look forward to in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
