Will Martin Sheen Play Uncle Ben in "Spider-Man" Reboot? Will Sally Field Play Aunt May?  


Martin Sheen is in final negotiations to play Spidey's father figure, Uncle Ben, in the new Columbia Pictures' reboot of "Spider-Man" according to the Hollywood Reporter. His character arch remains the same -- he and Aunt May raised Peter Parker and his death at the hands of a burglar leads Parker onto the path of heroism.

Sally Field is also in talks to star as Aunt May. If everything lines up, Sheen and Field will join Andrew Garfield (Peter/Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), and Rhys Ifans who will play the film's unnamed villain.

Director Marc Webb is set to start production in December. My spidey-sense is telling me that both Sheen and Field will come on board!
