Another Villain Is Added to SPIDER-MAN Along With Parents for Peter Parker
Columbia had added Campbell Scott to the ever growing list of cast members for the new SPIDER-MAN reboot, with Irrfan Khan, Annie Parisse and Julianne Nicholson all in different stages of discussion to join the film.
In a move to surprise fans of the comics, the Spider-Man reboot will actually involve Peter Parker’s parents. Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson have been cast as Parker’s parents, but it isn’t known yet exactly how director Marc Webb will work them in. Flashbacks are always an option, but he could move them to a prologue or actually have them sprinkled in during the course of the movie. Parker’s parents are rarely seen in the Marvel comic series and this will be the first time that they will appear on screen.
Khan (Slumdog Millionaire) will play the villain Van Atter, joining Rhys Ifans as another advisory for Spidey. Parisse will play Khan’s wife.
