Hold up just a minute. Martin Sheen is coming back to play Uncle Ben in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Is anybody else a little bit confused as to why this is happening? Hopefully there’s some sort of logical story explanation as to why they’re bringing him back.

At this point you should be aware of Spider-Man’s beginnings, since it’s been beaten over your head in cinemas twice. We all know that Uncle Ben’s death is crucial in the transformation of Peter Parker into the crime-fighting superhero Spider-Man that we all know and love. So then, what’s the reasoning as to how Uncle Ben will be making an appearance again? The funniest part about this is that Martin Sheen himself isn’t even sure.

They’ve called me back, I don’t know what the part is gonna be, but I’m going to be ‘Uncle Ben’ once again in Spider-Man next year. We shoot it in February.

We’re guessing that maybe they’ll do some sort of flashback piece, some what similar to how they did it in Spider-Man 2. Hey, wouldn’t that be funny if they went ahead and redid Uncle Ben’s last conversation with Peter Parker again like they did in Spider-Man 2? Actually no, it wouldn’t be, but that scene gives us a vague idea as to what we more or less can expect to see of Uncle Ben in the sequel. Lord knows they won’t be pulling no “One More Day” story arc on us, and even if they tried to (which they wouldn’t), that had to do with Aunt May not Uncle Ben.

Are you looking forward to The Amazing Spider-Man 2?
