Speaking to RTE’s The Late Late Show, the legendary Martin Sheen, who played Uncle Ben in The Amazing Spider-Man, has been asked to return in the sequel – hopefully not as a clone in the comic-book adaptation nobody wants.

“They’ve called me back,” he admitted. “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.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due 2 May 2014, while The Amazing Spider-Man is out now. Order it now on DVD for £10 and Blu-ray for £14.99 from Amazon.co.uk. Thwip thwip.
