Details Revealed On New Villain In Spider-Man Reboot

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???

Another Villain Added To New Spider-Man movie!

Filed under: Film Flickers

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?
