Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Back then, the way comics were printed and colored meant that unless Ditko put a ton of wrinkles on May's face she wouldn't have looked very old aside from the white hair. Unfortunately, later artists (when the comic art process was more refined) took this to mean that she was practically a walking cadaver.

Really, May and Ben shouldn't have been much older than their mid to late 40s when Peter was a teen. The Ultimate comics did this and de-aged both of them accordingly.
