“With great power, comes great responsibility” is probably one of the most famous dying quotes in the MCU and the world. Adam Scott is allegedly set to play the role of Uncle Ben, who has been recast numerous times and killed on and off the screen more than people would like to see. Well, prepare for another Ben Parker death, but this time, the actor is Adam Scott that motivates our neighborhood hero.
The role of Ben Parker goes to…Adam Scott
Adam Scott has been known for portraying the role of Ben Wyatt in the American sitcom Parks and Recreation. The actor had already been cast in Sony’s upcoming multiversal tie-over with Marvel, Madame Web but the people had expected a more vivid role for the actor.
Earlier recent set photos had suggested that the actor will be playing a variant of Peter Parker in the movie. Now, according to sources at The Cosmic Circus, the 49-year-old actor will be playing the role of the overtly killed uncle of the protagonist, Uncle Benjamin Parker. The heroic uncle who tries to stop a criminal while dying in the process has been played by numerous actors all throughout the iterations and remakes of Spider-Man.
Adam Scott was allegedly cast as Cosmic Spider-Man
Before the recent update, it was alleged that the actor will be playing the role of Peter Parker with the Cosmic Spider-Man variant available at his disposal. The Cosmic Spider-Man had powers such as Uni-vision (a single cosmic consciousness), forcing someone, to tell the truth, sensing distance between atomic scale, and, superhuman sight.
However, it seems that the title of Cosmic Spider-Man is up for grabs, now that Adam Scott would be playing the role of Uncle Ben.
Madame Web tells the story of a woman that is a leader of a spider-like unit/team. The lead role will be helmed by Dakota Johnson (from Fifty Shades fame), along with Emma Roberts and Adam Scott in other roles.
The film is Sony’s attempt to further the multiversal universe of Spider-Man. With the release of Venom and Morbius, the attempt of a spider-verse is going strong for Sony.
Madame Web is slated for a release date on 6th October 2023.
