Matthew McConaughey Playing The Villain In Marvel & Sony's Spider-Man?? Get The Deets On The Reboot Rumor HERE!

no title

Will Matthew McConaughey be the next great actor to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe??

The latest Spider-Man reboot casting rumor isn't about Peter Parker but instead about his greatest enemy!

[ Video: Matthew McConaughey Reacts To The New Star Wars Trailer ]

While Asa Butterfield is rumored to be the leading contender for Spidey, Oscar-winner McConaughey is now rumored to be in talks to play Norman Osborn!

The father of Peter's best friend Harry, head of Oscorp, and eventually insane super villain Green Goblin would be a juicy part that would allow Matthew to ham it up.

But as the McConaissance continues, his roles have mostly been more about subtlety and nuance. So we're not sure this casting is really in the cards…

Interestingly, Matthew costarred in Interstellar with actor Timothée Chalametone of Asa's fellow contenders for the role of Spider-Man.

next comic book hero to die will be

SPOILER ALERT: The announcement of a MAJOR comic book superhero's death is below!

After many, many years of fighting crime, and keeping the streets safe, we regret to inform you that during the upcoming issue of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, Peter Parker/Spidey will be killed by the Green Goblin.

Fortunately for avid Spider-Man fans, the Ultimates series is separate from the bigger Marvel universe, so Spidey will live on in other series, including the Amazing Spider-Man books.

Here's what Marvel senior editor Mark Paniccia had to say about Peter Parker's death:

How Dare They Mess With Green Goblin! Willem Dafoe's Rome Apartment Gets Burglarized!

Filed under: Sad SadJames Franco

willem dafoe gets burglarized

Come on, James Franco! Defend your Spider-Man dad! Ha!

In all seriousness though, we were sad to learn that Willem Dafoe's Rome apartment was burglarized on Sunday night.

According to police, thieves "lowered themselves from the roof" into his apartment, and stole $4,200 worth of jewelry, although Dafoe's rep says there was only $3,000 in losses.

Way to be honest, Team Willem! Maybe those karma points will kick in and those burglars will be caught!

We're just glad to hear that nobody was hurt.

…Guess it's time to update that security system, eh Willem?

Spider-Man Turns Off The Critics, Turns On Theatergoers

spider man ticket sales are up

If the Green Goblin can't stop Spider-Man, did we REALLY think the critics would be able to do it?

Despite the fact that reviews for Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark have been overwhelmingly negative, ticket sales are up!

Last week, the show had "almost a 3 percent spike in sales over the previous week," grossing $1,330,014.

Congratulations, Spider-Man team! Good to know that the hundreds of injured crew/cast members' efforts weren't entirely in vain.

Have U survived seen Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark yet?

Alan Cumming Is Glad He Quit The Spider-Man Musical!

alan-cumming-does-not-regret-dropping-out-of-spiderman-musical

We can't say we blame him, given the amount of injuries setbacks this production has had!

Alan Cumming, who was previously attached to portray the Green Goblin in the accident-prone musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark before he dropped out due to numerous delays, recently spoke out about the production, and seems to be pretty content with his decision to leave - despite having to continue working with director Julie Taymor on her film adaptation of The Tempest!

He explained:

"My GOD, that was a lucky escape. Jesus Christ! Talk about dodging a bullet there! …it just fucked me about. It kept getting delayed and delayed, and so I was like, 'OK, time to move on.' Yeah, it was a bit awkward. She wasn't best pleased when I quit. But the thing about Julie is that she's very blinkered about her work, and then things go into the ether. So the next time I saw her for The Tempest, it was like it never happened."

Well that's good!

We would hope that she would have understood how frustrating the wait for Spider-Man was, and kept it professional on the set of the flick, so we're very pleased to hear that!

Not to mention that we're thrilled you weren't the victim of any 'technical difficulties,' bb!

Smart call getting out when you did!

Thoughts??

Details Revealed On New Villain In Spider-Man Reboot

Filed under: Film Flickers

details revealed about new spider man villain identity

We totally called it!

Last week, a new villain in the Spider-Man reboot was announced, with the name Van Atter, and nobody seemed to know if he was a brand new villain OR if he was somehow a pre-existing character.

We said the villain would have some sort of connection to a character that already exists in the Spider-Man universe, and we were correct!

Slumdog Millionaire actor Irrfan Khan will play Nels Van Adder, a character who has been very briefly mentioned in the comics as an employee of Norman Osborn/Green Goblin's company, Oscorp Industries.

As the story goes, Osborn tested his Goblin serum on Van Adder, which drove him insane and turned him into a "red demon goblin" named Proto-Goblin!

Here's what Khan had to say about his role:

"He's a character who, I think, was not in the comics or perhaps a minor character. I've read some pages, but the whole script hasn't been made available to me."

And there you have it! The new villain in the Spider-Man reboot is Proto-Goblin!

Thoughts???
