Swinging into theaters in 2014 will be the man whose great power brought with him so much responsibility: Spider-Man. But, what about the ones that raised him to the hero he became?
Martin Sheen will be in the Spider-Man sequel: “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.”
Will quick flashbacks be his role or maybe a sustained storyline before the events of “The Amazing Spider-Man, one that will run concurrently with the present narrative? It could be sort of like the way both past and present worked for “Godfather II.” But, of course, this is just speculation; they might flesh out the relation between Oscorp and Peter’s parents and Sheen might help. Any clues that can be derived from the casting, though, are no where to be accounted for.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” though might have a different title: “The Spectacular Spider-Man,” even though it’s just a rumor floating around. It seems to be homage to the comic series that followed the original Spider-Man series by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Whatever it the possible title will be, it will start filming in two months aiming for a 2014 release date.
