Stan Lee for Uncle Ben in the Spider-Man Reboot sign now

Stan Lee is a great figure in the Marvel Comics legacy, and is one of the most recognizable face in comic history. But that isn't the only reason I believe he should be Uncle Ben in Mark Webb's upcomingSpider-Man Reboot, there are practical reasons as well:

Apart from it being incredibly awesome, here are my reasons:

1: He has made cameos in almost every Marvel Comics movie. Normally, this would not be noticed, but in Spider-Man 3, Stan's single line in that film basically summarized the entire point of the story, without seeming to be thrown in for the purpose of him being there.

2: He is right around the right age, appearance, and general look of Uncle Ben overall. He's already demonstrated his ability with small roles and to do them well, and he resembles the character already.

3: Most importantly, having created Spidey himself, he knows exactly, arguably more than anyone, exactly how Ben, and his famous motto, "With great power, comes great responsibilty." impacts Peter Parker. It establishes everything Peter does, how he feels, and motivates him to do the right thing.

4: Having made many cameos, naturally he will appear in this one. What better way to have the creator of Spider-Man be in the reboot, than being the one character that causes Peter to become the webslinging crimefighter that he is? It wouldn't be making him a large role, in a sense of screentime. Ben's representation comes from his symbolism, not how long he's been around, or what he does. He is represented by what he means to Peter, and Stan Lee is that same sort of symbol to his fans.

So, let's check the list:

He has had shown previous acting talent, resembles Ben closely, knows exactly what the character impacts the main character, is very similar to the character personality-wise in real life.

So, in finality: Nuff said.
