Joining Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in director Marc Webb’s Spider-Man film is actor Martin Sheen. He’ll be portraying Peter Parker’s beloved Uncle Ben.

For those who don’t know (Who could that be? No, seriously.): Uncle Ben is Peter Parker’s beloved uncle who is more of a father figure. Uncle Ben teaches Peter morals and coins the famous quote, “With great power comes responsibility.”

I keep getting surprised by the casting for the Spider-Man remake, and I can’t help but be stoked for it.
