Martin Sheen and Sally Field are likely to be cast as Uncle Ben and Aunt May in Marc Webb's "Spider-Man" reboot, according to The Hollywood Reporter. While this likely means Field won't end up, to fans' chagrin, Ma Kent or Ellen Lane in the next "Superman" film (and to original Lois Noel Neill's disappointment, she won't be the new Lois Lane either), it does mean this would be -- I'm pretty sure -- her first comic book movie. Sheen, on the other hand was in at least one major superhero movie, one that most of us would rather forget. But there it was popping back into my brain when I heard the news. So I might as well ruin everyone's day with shared recall.

The super-villain Venom is reportedly getting his own movie. I contemplate what other villains should receive the honor.
