Some big Spider-Man reboot news today, heavyweight actor and West Wing star Martin Sheen has been cast as Uncle Ben in Marc Webb's 3-D Spider-Man movie, joining The Social Network's Andrew Garfield and Easy A's Emma Stone. But that's not all!
The Hollywood Reporter is saying that along with Sheen, Academy Award-winning actress Sally Field has been offered the part of Aunt May. Any comic book aficionados will tell you that Aunt May and Uncle Ben are very important central characters to the Spider-Man franchise, and having such amazing actors in their roles is definitely a good sign for Webb's reboot.
Sony has set the new Spider-Man to hit theaters in 3D on July 3, 2012.
