This article contains The Amazing Spider-Man spoilers.

Ever since The Amazing Spider-Man proved to be a success and the sequel was announced we've had a fairly steady stream of casting rumours for the villain and other key characters (Jamie Foxx is set to play Electro in Marc Webb's follow up). Now, we've got the news that Martin Sheen is set to join the returning cast for the next movie.

“Well they called me back", he told RTE. "I don't know what the part's going to be but I'm going to be Uncle Ben once again in Spider-Man next year. We shoot in February".

Sheen was excellent in the role, but there was the small matter of the death of his character that we'd figured might have hindered his return. This can go one of only two ways: he'll either appear in flashback, or as some kind of zombie. We'll have to wait and see.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release on April 18th 2014.
