After Sony announced earlier week that Rhys Ifans would be cast opposite Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spiderman) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) as an unspecified villain in the upcoming Spiderman Reboot. TheWrap have now reported that Ifans will in fact portray, none other than Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard. Kudos to me, my immense intuition guessed The Lizard because ‘my only hunch is that Ifans kind of looks like a lizard…..yes, that‘s the best I‘ve got!’ *Pats myself on the back*.

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.

The Spiderman Reboot is to be directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt. Production will begin in December and the film will be released in cinemas in 3D on July 3, 2012.
