Martin Sheen Bringing Back Uncle Ben For Next Spider-Man Movie

This surely can’t be considered a spoiler – I’m going to tell you nothing of how and why Uncle Ben will be featured in the next Spider-Man movie, just that he’ll be cropping up, somewhere, somehow. It could be any kind of flashback, dream or vision.

Or maybe Electro will give his corpse a jolt and Frankenstein-up a new villain for the series, Boil In The Bag Rice Man or something.

See what I mean about how this just can’t be considered a spoiler? There’s nothing at all unexpected or contentious implied by the news.

Sheen appeared on RTE’s Late Late Show with Ryan Tubridy, which I haven’t seen in a long, long time, last Friday. His exact words were

I’m going to be Uncle Ben in Spider-Man once again next year. We shoot it in February.

Well, more Martin Sheen is good. I’m happy.
