Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Irrfan Khan talks briefly about his role - but he doesn't seem to know an awful lot about it:

In “Spider-Man” you’re playing a character not that many people have heard of. What can you tell us about Van Adder?
Is that his name? These science-fiction names don’t mean a lot to me. He’s a character who, I think, was not in the comics or perhaps a minor character. I’ve read some pages, but the whole script hasn’t been made available to me.
How did you get the role?
My manager told me that the director Marc Webb was approaching us. I spoke with him, and he sounded very engrossed, and I was interested. I’m expectant and really looking forward to it.
Have you had to do any training in preparation for the part? And what about being in 3-D?
You don’t do training for action. You’re waiting for action. You just strap yourself into a harness and go. Two dimensions, three dimensions — “Avatar” really made a difference in terms of 3-D, but beyond that I haven’t thought about it.
