Could there be a major funeral taking place during “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″? It seems like we could be losing a major character — Uncle Ben? — based on a casting call posted to On Location Vacations.
Among the three posted casting calls, one of them is asking for men and women ages 18 to 70 to “portray Friends & Family Mourning at a Funeral/ Wake.” This scene is set to film on Valentine’s Day, which seems a little twisted to us. Here is the full casting call:
