Newcomer Chris Zylka has been cast in the role of high school jock and Peter Parker’s arch-rival, Flash Thompson. The character was only given a short screen time in Sam Raimi’s version of the web-slinger, so maybe we’ll see more of him this time around. He certainly had a fuller role in the mythology via the comic book, where he found himself mixing with both Hobgoblin and The Green Goblin.
Zylka is part of the ensemble in Gregg Araki’s latest twisted adolescent fantasy Kaboom, and he’ll join the likes of Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Rhys Ifans and The Namesake’s Irrfan Khan in this new 3D adaptation of the popular Marvel creation.
