Uncle Ben Cast!

Uncle Ben Cast!

The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news about casting Uncle Ben for the Spiderman reboot. Directed by Marc Webb the previous casting announcements have included Andrew Garfield who can currently be seen on screens in the excellent film ‘The Social Network’ as Peter Parker/Spiderman and Emma Stone who recently was on screen in the fun teen comedy ‘Easy A’ as Gwen Stacy.

Martin Sheen is in final negotiations to play Uncle Ben who along with his Aunt May were both pivotal role models in Peter Parkers life. Sheen can be heard as the voice of the illusive man in the video game ‘Mass Effect 2’ and is involved in two films currently in post-production called ‘The Double’ and ‘Flatland’.

The cast being built for the Spiderman reboot is looking strong, it’ll definitely be worth seeing Marc Webb’s take on the character.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
