Tom Holland Wants This 'Spider-Man' Alum To Play Uncle Ben

This article particularly talks about the excitement that surrounds the upcoming "Spider Man" game.

Spider-Man: Homecoming has well and truly course-corrected the web-slinger's on-screen standing with fans, after a fleet of underwhelming movies and it became clear that Sony just didn't know what to do with the character. Peter Parker's Aunt May has got a major revamp in Spider-Man: Homecoming and is being played by Marisa Tomei, and there's no reason her husband (Uncle Ben is May's husband in the Marvel universe), shouldn't get an upgrade too. Unlike Mary-Jane and Gwen Stacey in the previous Spider-Man films whose relationships with Peter were often made a focus, although for a change it was nice to see a Spider-Man film made not so romance orientated. Do you think Tobey would be a great Uncle Ben?

It's been a few years since Tobey Maguire has starred in the Spidey universe, but he's not that old. "I don't think he'll do it though", Tom told BBC Radio 1 recently.

"I kinda want Tobey Maguire to play Uncle Ben, I think that'd be super amusing, but I don't think he'll do it". Holland's Peter is 15 in the film, and if Maguire were to play Uncle Ben his age would work well with that idea.

Here are 5 best noments in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Insomniac also confirmed their story will feature plenty of Spidey villains you may not be familiar with. (And they're just as diverse as a movie about a kid from Queens ought to be.) It gives the film a more organic approach, adding flavor to the plot itself and adding Robert Downey Jr.'s swagger completed the entire Spiderman: Homecoming experience.
