New Villain Joins Cast Of Marc Webb’s SPIDER-MAN 3D Reboot
THR has announced that Campbell Scott (Roger Dodger, The Spanish Prisoner), Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire, The Darjeeling Limited), Annie Parisse (Rubicon, National Treasure) and Julianne Nicholson (Kinsey, Little Black Book) are currently in talks to join the cast.
It was revealed that soon after Norman had Stromm arrested for embezzlement, he had found only a portion of the notes detailing his partner’s serum. Norman tests the incomplete version of the serum on an Oscorp employee named Nels Van Adder, driving Van Adder slowly insane and beginning his transformation into a red, demon-like being known as the “Proto-Goblin”. Killing several people and blaming Norman for what has happened to him, Adder proceeds to harass and later attempts to kill him before being knocked out a window in Oscorp by Arthur and George Stacy and fleeing into the wild. In order to escape conviction for what he had done to Van Adder, Norman convinces the police that Van Adder had been experimenting on himself, and that he had secretly been trying to help him. Van Adder’s current fate remains unrevealed.
