Meet Peter Parker’s parents. Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson will play Spidey’s moms and pops in Sony’s reboot. Nicholson is best known for her role on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and Scott is best known as always playing a struggling writer. Parker’s deceased parents are seldomly seen in the comic and have never been brought to the screen before. It’ unknown whether they will appear in flashback or prologue or a scene where Spider-Man goes to Robot Heaven with Optimus Prime.
Also joining the cast is a new villian played by Irfan Khan. His character is Van Atter, and it’s unknown if he’ll be super-powered or just a dick. Speculation is he will play a scientist along with Rhys Ifans’s Lizard. Not all Indians have to be doctors, you guys. Not cool. Not cool. (THR)
