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!

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.

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???
