WITH GREAT POWER..?
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.”
