It is a shame and guilt that will weigh on him for years.

Heatvision is reporting that Martin Sheen – whose entire, storied filmography is overshadowed by his striking ability to put on a sport coat by sliding both arms in at the same time (see The West Wing for proof) – is at the one-yard negotiation line to join the rebooted Spider-Man as Peter Parker’s tragic Uncle Ben.

Jokes aside, it’s difficult to see this as being anything but stellar news. Andrew Garfield is a strong acting talent, and Sheen is almost unmatched when he puts on the father figure voice. It’s just one more hit to those who don’t believe comic book movies can’t pull in profound actors (even if they are destroying the industry).

Now to see if his son will play the criminal that Spider-Man refuses to catch.
