Fresh off the announcement that Emma Stone would be joining Andrew Garfield in the new Spider-Man reboot, comes more great news. We've found our new villian!
According to Deadline, Rhys Ifans has been cast as the newest villian ready to take on our beloved web-slinger.
No word yet on exactly which villian Ifans will be playing. Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures, commented on the announcement, "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."
He continued, "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."
This is turning out to be a great cast, especially after seeing Garfield's amazing performance in The Social Network, and Stone in Easy A. Now we just have to wait and see who will play Peter Parker's other love, Gwen Stacy.
