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

^ By about 20 years or so and we only saw the HS of IM2 in grainy old footage. Hair dye, make-up and soft lighting would have sufficed, IMHO. I've no strong feelings on it, but I just think that having 3 actors as Howard in as many movies is a bit silly.

We do know that Marvel Sudios has problems retaining actors to reprise their roles in films...

For some reason, I assumed that Uncle Ben would already be dead when the movie started.

I did as well. I think we'll see him in flashbacks.

So would this mean we're getting the hippy Uncle Ben?

Sally Field has been offered Aunt May.

Not sure if I'd like Sally Field. It's going to be tough to beat Rosemary Harris's Aunt May. She was really quite good.

It does sound like an Ultimate Spider-man dream cast.

So does that mean we can't get Martin Sheen for Perry White then?

If Sheen goes off and plays Perry White after doing this, Sony might kill Uncle Ben off in the first two minutes of the next movie.

Wait...

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

Yes this is sounding more and more like they're adapting "Ultimate Spider-Man" or at least using it as the bases for their film. I like the Sheen casting and am very interested if Field were cast. It would have been hard replacing Cliff Robertson and Rosemary Harris who in my opinion were Aunt May and Uncle Ben but these two will be just as good. I really like Ultimate Aunt May, she is so much more well rounded than her 616 counterpart. Although i am a fan of the recent marriage to Jameson Sr.
