Casting for The Amazing Spider-Man sequel has been pretty stellar so far. Shailene Woodley was added as Mary Jane Watson, followed by Jamie Foxx as Electro and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn. Now, in an unexpected announcement, Martin Sheen has confirmed that he will return as Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben.
The actor was on RTÉ’s The Late Late Show and when asked about his next appearance on the big screen, he said: “Well they called me back, I don’t know what the part’s going to be but I’m going to be Uncle Ben once again in Spider-Man next year. We shoot in February.”
Sheen will join his Amazing Spider-Man co-stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in the May 2, 2014 release.
