NEW YORK, March 16 (UPI) -- Sally Field has revealed her true feelings regarding her time as Aunt May in The Amazing Spider-Man series of films.

"It's not my kind of movie," the actress said on The Howard Stern Show recently admitting that she couldn't quite get into the material.

Field had her own personal reasons however for signing onto the two-part failed film franchise alongside Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy). "But my friend Laura Ziskin was the producer, and we knew it would be her last film, and she was my first producing partner, and she was a spectacular human," she continued.

Stern then asked Field how much thought she had put into her character. "Not a great deal," she replied. "It's really hard to find a three-dimensional character in it, and you work it as much as you can, but you can't put 10 pounds of (expletive) in a five-pound bag."

Reaction to both The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was mixed amongst Sony Pictures and audiences as well leading the studio to reboot the franchise yet again. Now actor Tom Holland is set to appear as the iconic webslinger in a new standalone film due in theaters July 7,2017.

Before that the new Spider-Man will guest star in Captain America: Civil War out in theaters May 6. The latest trailer for the upcoming superhero epic featured Holland interacting with the other heroes in the Marvel cinematic universe for the first time.
