Earlier this week we learned that Rhys Ifans had been cast as the villain in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. However Sony was not forthcoming with what specific villain he would actually be playing in the film.
Now The Wrap is reporting that it will be Dr. Curt Connors aka The Lizard. Ifans will play the role of a surgeon who was sent to war and lost his arm only to return and regrow the limb using reptilian DNA but with drastic side-effects. The most recent trilogy had Dylan Baker in the role though the character was not featured prominently.
