Spider-Man’s Web Shooters Fail and Irrfan Khan Puts to Rest Proto-Goblin RumorsPosted 11:46 am on Sunday, February 6th, 2011 by Mike Villarreal
It has been a busy week for the set of the new Spider-Man reboot. We have been doing numerous reports on the new photos from the LA set but this is the first time we can actually see Spidey is trying to use his web shooters. In the photos below, the scene depicts the classic Spider-Man cliche of Peter Parker running out of web fluid.
In other Spider-Man related news, there has been a rumor going around that Slumdog Millionaire actor Irrfan Khan will be Proto-Goblin in the reboot. The Bollywood actor put those rumors to rest during a recent interview with Indian Express.
While he is looking forward to Spider-Man, the 48-year-old confesses, that initially he wasn’t keen on the project. “I didn’t want to be part of this violent American fantasy. But both my sons were excited and kept insisting that I take it up.” But the intricacy and freshness of the script finally won. Even then, Irrfan placed one condition before Webber — he didn’t want to be a masked villain or become another creature. Spider-Man’s schedule in Los Angeles will follow his March shoot for Life of Pi in Taiwan.
