Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)
Just because he is a big name actor doesn't mean that he wouldn't sign onto the movie to play a role that might be reduced than everyone else's role. Michael Cain in "Inception" is a good example of this. This is a silly argument anyway since again we know next to nothing about the plot yet and this is a knee jerk reaction from fans who do not want to see another origin story. I realize that having Ben involved would incite some to speculate that this is an origin story...but a character can still be involved in a flash back sequence over several periods and still have impact.
