Patton Oswalt to play Spider-Man's Uncle Ben in new TV series

17 July 2017, 05:45 | Santos Harmon

We already know about how Peter Parker was bitten by a spider that gave him special abilities and we also know about how the tragic death of Uncle Ben motivates him to be the hero he's destined to be. We see that Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) is his sole guardian, with Uncle Ben obviously absent.

There were initial comparisons between Spider-Man's combat system and Batman's, but Insomniac's community director James Stevenson has said, "Our goals for this fighting is all about improvisation and acrobatics".

Marvel's Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, an executive producer of the series, has also snapped up a role, as coffee shop owner Joe.

"I kinda want Tobey Maguire to play Uncle Ben". However, with Tom Holland's debut in Captain America: Civil War and his exuberance in Homecoming, it's a lot of fun having the character back on the big screen. "I don't think he'll do it though", Tom told BBC Radio 1 recently.

The latest reboot of the "Spider-Man" franchise is about young Spider-Man, played by Holland, growing up as a superhero and taking on the villain the Vulture played by Keaton.

Hence, "Insomniac's Spider-Man" for PlayStation 4 won IGN's E3 2017 People's Choice Award. Director of photography Salvatore Totino captures the aerial fluidity of Spider-Man as he swings through NY with a lot of skill and understanding.

"We have a great cast and Peter is just one of many, many characters we have in the game".
