Rhys Ifans will play Dr. Curt Connors, better known as The Lizard, in Marc Webb's "Spider-Man," TheWrap has learned.
There had been rumors across the blogosphere that Sony was thinking of bringing back Venom for the franchise reboot, but that character will not be featured in the movie, two individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
Andrew Garfield stars as Peter Parker, while Emma Stone will play Gwen Stacy, who rivals Mary Jane Watson for Spidey's affection.
Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin are producing the movie, which begins production in December.
Dylan Baker played Connors in Sam Raimi's two "Spider-Man" sequels.
"Spider-Man" will hit theaters in 3D on July 3, 2012.
Alright, I'm pretty excited for this now. I love The Lizard and it's going to be interesting seeing how they portray him here. But I don't know how he can hold the attention for the entire movie. Hopefully they'll add another side villain or something. But so far, the only thing disappointing me is the 3D. =/
That's sort of a waste of time and not needed.
