Rhys Ifans is the Spider-Man Villain

Actor Ryhs Ifans (Little Nicky, Notting Hill) has been cast as the Spider-Man villain in the reboot. The news just comes days after they announced Emma Stone was playing Gwen Stacy.

President of Columbia Pictures said "We have been very fortunate to attract some of the best actors working today to play the villains in the Spider-Man movies, and it is exciting to see that trend continue with Rhys Ifans.  After seeing his performance in our upcoming film Anonymous, we’re in awe of his talent and think he’s the perfect choice to take on this role."

Director Marc Webb preferred to not reveal exactly which villain Ifans will be portraying for the time being, but we hope he is somebody awesome. 

Webb added "What sets the Spider-Man villains apart is the complexity of their relationships with Peter Parker.  Rhys' incredible ability to embody both warmth and rage makes him the ideal choice for this character."

Spider-Man reboot hits theaters on July 3, 2012
