Martin Sheen returns as Uncle Ben in The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Take a look at what he had to say on the Irish talk show The Late Late Show last week.
"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."
True to Spider-Man lore, Uncle Ben died in The Amazing Spider-Man, so Martin Sheen will most likely return for a few flashback scenes. Either that, or he will be pulling an Obi-Wan Kenobi. We'll keep you posted if any more character details are released.
Marc Webb is directing from a screenplay by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Jeff Pinkner.
