Spider-Man Gets Irrfan Khan as Proto-Goblin Nels Van Atter

It is also being reported that Irrfan Khan will play the second villain in the movie, a thug named Nels Van Atter who is somewhat of a mystery to fans of this particular franchise. According to Marvel lore, he is the evil Proto-Goblin, a research assistant to Mendel Stromm and employee of Norman Osborne (aka The Green Goblin}. He was used in the conducting of high-tech experiments, and served as a test subject for a chemical that was developed by Osborne and Stromm, which turned him into a red beast with fangs and claws.

George Stacy (the recently announced Denis Leary), Gwen’s (Emma Stone) father and the Captain of Police, plays heavily into the original Proto-Goblin story as told in the comics.
