During the appearance, she spoke about her character May, and possibly having her be a lesbian in the movie.

“There was a moment, where I felt that May — maybe she should just be with a woman because Ben is gone,” she said of Peter Parker’s aunt, May Parker. (If you didn’t know, her character’s husband, Ben Parker, was murdered by a burglar in the comic books and films.)

She even revealed that she pitched the idea of her on-screen partner being Sony producer Amy Pascal.

“And we were kind of talking about it,” she said before laughing. “And so I actually really wanted Amy Pascal from Sony to be my girlfriend!”

“I was like, ‘No one even has to know, Amy. 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.’”

However, execs weren’t so into the idea.

“No one went for it at the time,” she said.
