Rhys Ifans to be Spider-Man Villain

Welsh actor Rhys Ifans has been cast as the lead villain in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. The identity of said villain is as-yet unannounced, but looks likely to be either Green Goblin or Venom, both of whom appeared in Sam Raimi’s trilogy. Director Marc Webb said “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.”

Ifans’ name has been added to a cast that already includes Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, two potential break-out stars of this year with their respective films The Social Network and Easy A.
