    Default 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.

    Are we sure it's a flashback? Electro could be a red herring and Ben returns kicking off a different take on the Clone Saga (JOKING!).

    This reboot was a let down for me... what a waste of money and talent!

    I was hoping for zombie Deathlok Uncle Ben.

    Not suprising. They did the same thing in the Raimi series

    Another chance to get Uncle Ben to finally utter "With great power comes great responsibility" in this reboot?

    I would watch Martin Sheen read the phone book, so this is good news.

    He really did a good job on Ben, didn't he? I'm not sure why people disliked Sally Field as May tho'.
