While speaking on RTE Television‘s ‘The Late Late Show’ earlier today, actor Martin Sheen has revealed that he will be returning as Uncle Ben, the iconic comic book character who is the reason behind Peter Parker becoming a hero, in Marc Webb’s upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. The actor revealed:
“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.”
As we all know the character met his demise in the last film, which most likely means that we will see him return in a flashback or dream sequence most likely. And maybe he’ll even say that line that you all cried about him not saying in the first film? Even though, he kind of said it in a way.
The untitled sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man swings into theaters May 2, 2014.
