To this day ru­mours abound that Michael Biehn was at one time slated to ap­pear as Peter Parker in a James Cameron-di­rected movie out­ing for Mar­vel’s iconic web- slinger. Of course, such a project never got off the ground and, de­spite the ex­is­tence of con­cept art that ap­pears to fea­ture his Spi­der- face, the ac­tor is quick to put such whis­pers to rest. “I keep hear­ing this but it is not true,” he laughs. “Jim did work on mak­ing a Spi­der- Man movie – I re­mem­ber that pe­riod. It was just after Aliens, I think, but I was al­ready 30 at that time. I was far too old to play Peter Parker – you need some­one who is in his 20s for that role. So I don’t know where that idea ever came from. We never dis­cussed Spi­der- Man – but it seems to be this crazy ur­ban legend.”
