UGO talked to Cliff Robertson, who played Uncle Ben in Spider-Man, about the sequel and he let out a spoiler…
I enjoyed working with Brian DePalma. He’s a good director, a bright fellow and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again. I just finished the sequel to Spider-Man. They brought Uncle Ben back, which I can’t talk about. Sam Raimi is also a fine director and friend. I also met his family. In a town that is not known for its familial tendencies, he has a lovely relationship with them. Both he and DePalma are among my favorite directors.
He talks a bit more about the first film at the source link above.
