While many felt that it was too soon to make a "Spider-Man" reboot, critics and fans agreed that Marc Webb did a very good job at bringing the story to life last year. His rendition of the tale was supposed to tell the untold story, the details from the comic-book folklore that were perhaps not as explored in Sam Raimi's previous "Spider-Man" films.

The sequel to Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man" is said to dive deeper into the characters and their motivations as well as the important involvement and evolution of the Obsorn family. It was reported that Martin Sheen, who portrayed Uncle Ben in Webb's film, is coming back for the sequel. Sheen revealed, "They've called me back, I don't know what the part is gonna be, but I'm going to be 'Uncle Ben' once again in Spider-Man next year. We shoot it in February."

At this point we aren't sure if Sheen's involvement will be used as purely a flashback of his eventual tragic death or if Webb will explore his backstory more. After all, it was inferred that both Uncle Ben and Aunt May (Sally Field) perhaps knew more about the work Peter Parker's parents were involved in, which resulted in their eventual fate.

We'll keep you posted as the story develops.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" flies to AMC Theatres on until May 2nd, 2014.
