Denis Leary Cast in Marc Webb's SPIDER-MAN 3D Reboot

Movie Spider-Man by Joey Paur

Denis Leary (Rescue Me) is currently in negotiations to with Sony Pictures to join Marc Web's new Spider-Man movie. He will be taking on the role of Police Captain George Stacy, who happen's to be the father of Peter Parker's love interest Gwen Stacy, who is being played by Emma Stone.

James Cromwell previously played this role in Spider-Man 3. There's no information on what Webb has planned for the character, but if you follow the comic book, Stacy loses his life during a battle between Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus. Gwen blames Spider-Man for the tragedy because she doesn't know that Spider-Man and Peter are the same person... ouch. 

Leary will join Andrew Garfield who is playing Peter Parker, Martin Sheen as Ben Parker and Rhys Ifans who plays the villain in the film, rumor has it it will be The Lizard. 

Spider-Man is set to hit theaters on July 3rd 2012.
