Lots of news about comic book movie villains these days!
First, The Joker and Harvey Dent/Two-Face are taken out of The Dark Knight Rises, and now Spider-Man's got yet another villain to contend with in the upcoming Spidey flick!
Slumdog Millionaire's Irrfan Khan has signed on to the film as a villain named Van Atter, and his wife will be played by Annie Parisse from AMC's Rubicon. It looks like Khan's character may be a brand new villain…or perhaps a cover-name for another pre-existing villain?
Along with "Van Atter," Spidey will also be taking on Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors/"The Lizard."
Certainly would be an inneresting and controversial decision to reboot the franchise with a villain who wasn't even in the comics! But we're thinking this character will have a link to a pre-existing character in one way or another.
What do U think about this villain choice for the new Spider-Man?
