Another Villain Added To New Spider-Man movie!

new villain announced for spider man movie

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?

Mary Jane Watson DROPPED From Spider-Man Reboot?!

Filed under: Film Flickers

We feel like every day, we're hearing something different!

There's been quite a bit of speculation surrounding the reboot of Spider-Man, specifically regarding whether or not Mary Jane Watson or Gwen Stacy will be the primary love interest for the web slinger in the new flick.

The biggest surprise came with the casting of Emma Stone, whom everyone assumed would take on KiKi's role before it was revealed that she would be Gwen!

However, sources are reporting now that the Mary Jane character has been completely dropped from the reboot - mainly because the writer, James Vanderbilt, and director Marc Webb couldn't figure out a way to successfully incorporate a love-triangle into the script, and eventually became weary of the idea after how poorly a similar plot line was received in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3!

The same source is also confirming The Lizard as the reboot's main villain!

Inneresting!

And we'd say that eliminating Mary Jane is probably a smart move! They've already covered all of that ground in the first films, so we think the more original this one is, the better!

What do U think?? Are U happy with the direction the new Spider-Man is taking??
