For those not in the know: Scarlet Spider (Ben Reilly) - Marvel Universe: The definitive online source for Marvel super hero bios. I have been reading the limited 'Scarlet Spider' series and arcs, basically the Clone Saga, etc. Now, would it be a good idea to introduce him into the films? Would it have to be a 'clone' plot? I think it will work as long as Ben Reilly is slowly introduced, through a whole film until his full reveal. Introduced in the shadows, following, stalking and documenting Peter's life. Perhaps he could be confronted by Peter and then the truth is revealed. It would be one of those roles where Maguire would have to play two roles, being a genetic copy, maybe dyed hair and with scruffy stubble? Maybe a scar to help differentiate him? I think there's potential. Perhaps they secretly team up for a while, 'two Spideys are better than one - two places at once', so they get on top of crime and super villains and avoid the 'fight the super villain or meet Mary Jane?' for a time. That would especially be cool, as they could fight over who gets the villain duty and who sees MJ/Aunt May/goes to work. Peter insisting that other than work, Ben must stay away from his personal life? Ben leaves NY to become the SS in, say, San Francisco or Seattle. Bingo, instant spin off series. Maybe popping in to subsitiute for Spider-man every now and again in the Reilly Spider suit? - this is all conjecture, my ideas, but what are your thoughts? Should he appear and how should it be done?
