If you’re the actor portraying Uncle Ben in a Spider-Man movie, the good news is that you won’t have to work many days on set before collecting your pay check.
Martin Sheen is playing the perennially dying uncle in The Amazing Spider-Man. You can see him in the set photos above with Andrew Garfield (they’re shooting in Queens), and soon he will become Peter Parker’s personal guilt ghost. In his last breathes, Uncle Ben is probably reminding Peter that “with great power comes great responsibility,” and also stating, “I totally cheated on your Aunt May… hey… don’t judge me…”
The Amazing Spider-Man webs its way into theaters July 3, 2012. (On Location Vacations)
