Marton Csokas Joins THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Cast

The New Zealand actor who previously appeared in The Lord Of The Rings films, has joined the cast of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But who is the actor portraying? There's a possible clue after the jump.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that New Zealand actor, Marton Csokas has joined the cast of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But who will he play? IMDb currently has Mr. Csokas listed as Dr Kafka, a character from Marvel Comics that's the head of the Ravencroft Institute. However, in Marvel Comics lore, Dr. Kafka is a woman so it's possible that someone on IMDb (anyone can edit movie information) is merely guessing at his role.

Dr Kafka Character Bio:
Ravencroft Sanitarium for the Criminally Insane psychiatrist. She has been the Doctor to Carnage, Shriek, Carrion, Vermin, Chameleon, Massacre and Venom to name a few.

With Kafka being such a minor character, I imaging most comic book fans will not feel one way or the other about a possible gender reversal. Comment below and share your thoughts about The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Intresting, sounds like a good actor
Abary - 5/19/2013, 5:30 AM
Yeah, I read this yesterday on IMDb. Lol
MarkJulian - 5/19/2013, 6:18 AM
No confirmation he's playing Kafka, THR doesn't say who he's playing and IMDb is definitely not trustworthy.

@ MarkJulian

There is new info floating around about Arkham Origins..
Deathstroke Dlc playable character and
Kevin Conroy maybe is the voice of Batman
He said at the Dalas comic con he had been working 9/10 months on the newe arkham game

Chameleon ? I can honestly see them using Chameleon at some point in these films.
Name - 5/19/2013, 6:55 AM
IIIAdamantiumIII, i could see that too. He'd be pretty easy to depict i imagine if the way Hugo Weaving took of his face in Cap is anything to go by with regards to the visual.
P862010 - 5/19/2013, 6:56 AM
he was great in the debt with chastain and worthington
Space - 5/19/2013, 6:58 AM
Norman Osborn?

MarkJulian - 5/19/2013, 6:59 AM
@Dminic Saw that but I'm sure he meant the game that Rocksteady is working on, not Origins.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 5/19/2013, 7:09 AM
Chameleon is a character that could easily be added to this universe. He could been used in so many ways for a number of reasons. A Character like Chameleon is the type who can be pretty much thrown into anything and explained away easily. "HES A SPY!" ect ect . While with other Villains you are expected to dig deep into their backround and explain their origins.....It would be nice to see shocker and scorpion as well.. explaining their existence could be handled in a few different ways. Shocker could use some prototype suit modeled after Electro's powers. while scorpion could be a combination of Normans super serum and experimental exoskeleton suit (like so many of use hope for rhino)

@ TheBloodCrow
Chris Cooper is already Norman Osborn.
MarkJulian - 5/19/2013, 7:10 AM
@SotoJuiceMan IDK for sure but I can't think of any reason why the Origins developers would lie, they stand to gain nothing.
deamon - 5/19/2013, 7:10 AM
If Olsen in woman in MOS, why Kafka can't be man here.
Luko - 5/19/2013, 7:10 AM
Dr. Kafka with artificial boobs
SpiderBat209 - 5/19/2013, 7:12 AM
MYSTERIO, maybe? :)
Gmoney84 - 5/19/2013, 7:18 AM
He'd be a good kraven the hunter.
Lewis25 - 5/19/2013, 7:19 AM
I think he would be the perfect Kraven.
Dminic - 5/19/2013, 7:22 AM
@ MarkJulian

They said the site that reported he was not working on AO jumped the gun....
Dminic - 5/19/2013, 7:22 AM
something about a non-disclosure contract
Ceejay - 5/19/2013, 7:29 AM
This guy can really ham up his performances, he's a terrible actor. Anyone watching the new TV series 'Rogue' with Thandie Newton will know, he's the main mob boss and his delivery is laughable.
spidey1994 - 5/19/2013, 7:31 AM
Good actor. I dunno who he could play though since IMDB is full of bollocks when it comes to confirmation. I think he could be a good Chameleon.
AnakinsTwin - 5/19/2013, 7:32 AM
@Lewis25: you're on point, he'd make a great Kraven!!!
PhoenixKing - 5/19/2013, 7:42 AM
It would be amazing if he was a villain like Mysterio, getting introduced in this one for the third chapter. That would be epic.
KelvTwelve - 5/19/2013, 7:58 AM
I love how this actor could be any villain possible.
Kryptoniano - 5/19/2013, 8:11 AM
I only hope they are getting talented actor to play villains or supporting characters in a DECENT WAY... Please no more "mandarin turns" or Sam Raimi´s Venoms, for such things only ofend audiences and fans. Cheers to you all.
ruadh - 5/19/2013, 8:11 AM
He's the guy who killed Brandon Lee.
KeefNCookies - 5/19/2013, 8:20 AM
Great actor... dudes a powerhouse.

Would be great to install him as a player in future films.
MightyZeus - 5/19/2013, 8:26 AM
He's rocket raccoon!!!
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/19/2013, 8:27 AM
He would be a good kraven. He is prolly going to be the Kafka guy. But I wouldn't be suprised if he was chameleon also. They could Defiently use chameleon in this series becasue he just fits in so well. He could be like the guy Norman hired to kill peters parents. Anyone else think maybe Harry's mom was dying of cancer and peters parents were working on a sereum to save her but found out it was extremely dangerous thus he had them killed?
thejackwagon94 - 5/19/2013, 8:37 AM
I would have preferred him for Ozzy, the guy they have just seems a mite old.
Danbojohnj - 5/19/2013, 8:38 AM
Hmm,seen him in a few forgettable roles,hammier than a hammy ham.
deamon - 5/19/2013, 8:59 AM
He's the real Ant May, that's the new stupid thing in Marvel heroes movies -> TWIST!!!
SpectacularJoSh - 5/19/2013, 9:36 AM
Cool...I'm down with him being Kraven...I really want to see a Sinister Six movie someday...but,wasn't Webb's Spider-Man supposed to be a trilogy? Hmm?
SpectacularJoSh - 5/19/2013, 9:38 AM
Cracks me up every time.

Muaddib13 - 5/19/2013, 10:33 AM
He is so Moebuis
thenerdicon4 - 5/19/2013, 11:19 AM
I highly doubt Electros race ever played a large part in the comics, so the race change isn't a big deal. But Honestly i like that they are changing up the Rhino and Electros back stories. They never had interesting ones anyway. These characters are incredibly 2 demensional in the comics. I would rather they change something from the comics and make it better rather than stick to the comics and have it suck. Look at the villains in Spider-Man 3. They pretty much stuck to the same origins for them (minus Sandman killing Uncle Ben) and that movie sucked. Look at DOctor Octopus, they changed up him from being just pure evil to being a corrupted man who just wants to finish an experiment. And it worked. So, like i said, make them better.
novaprime - 5/19/2013, 12:03 PM
He Will Be Great As Kraven The Hunter!!!, & Also Carnage, or a Noraman Osbourne For The 3qual!!!!
xinstituto - 5/19/2013, 12:24 PM
He is gonna be another Peter's schoolmate
xinstituto - 5/19/2013, 12:27 PM
but @Funofsteel Spiderman 3 did not keep the vilains origin, somethings were changed, and the film did not suck as ASM did
Optimus83 - 5/19/2013, 12:44 PM
Mr. Kafka???. ...not Miss Kafka, wife of Kraven the Hunter
