Sally Field in talks to be Aunt May!

Well we got our Uncle Ben now, so what about Aunt May? Well as of today, The Hollywood Reporter posts an article that Sally Field (from Forrest Gump and ABC's Brothers & Sisters) is in negotiations to play as Peter's aunt in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. Aunt May, who was portrayed by Rosemary Harris from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy, will be replace by Sally Field, if she decides to come on board. I think this is a great idea, but I want to know what all of you think of this! Please leave your comments in the usual place below. Thanks!

The untitled "Spider-Man" reboot will swing into theaters in 3-D on July 3rd, 2012, which is starring Andrew Garfield in the lead role, Emma Stone as the female lead, Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as the antagonist (unknown for now, but rumored to be The Lizard), and Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben.

Martin Sheen Set to Play Uncle Ben in Spider-Man!

According to a Hollywood Reporter exclusive, Sheen is close to finalizing a deal to sign on as Uncle Ben, who's death is the catalyst for Peter Parker to start to take his new found powers seriously in the comics. The character was previously played by Oscar winner Cliff Robertson in Sam Raimi's movies.

Sheen, repped by ICM, is a veteran of the screen, having appeared in over 100 movies since 1967. He can be seen at the moment in The Way, which is directed by his son Emilio Estevez. He joins Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as The Lizard(though that has yet to be confirmed).

The Spider-Man reboot will be directed by Marc Webb and will be released in 3D on July 3, 2012.

In my opinion, Cliff Robertson will always be Uncle Ben to me. But Martin Sheen is not a bad choice at all! This could mean another origin story, with more depth to Uncle Ben. There was in the first movie, but I just want to see more of him in this movie. Maybe just for flashbacks? Well for whatever they're going to do with him, I hope they do it very well! That reminds me, remember that they were casting a young Peter Parker? Maybe those scenes will involve Uncle Ben. Anyways, make sure to comment in the usual place below, and let me know what you think of this! You like this casting choice, or not? Let me know!
