Rhys Ifans Will Play the Lizard in the New Spider-Man Movie!

Spidey fans will finally get to see Dr. Curt Connors transform in the new Spider-Man movie. Early this week, we reported that British actor Rhys Ifans had joined that cast for an untitled villain. Many fans had speculated that he would either play the role of the Vulture, Mysterio, Electro or even Carnage. The Wrap announce today that he would take on the role previously played by Dylan Baker.

I’m glad they went for a villain that hasn’t been used before. One of the biggest teases of the Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man series was always seeing Dr. Connors and never having him become The Lizard. I am not entirely sure that Ifans is the greatest choice for the role because all I can remember when I hear his name is his character in The Replacements.
