Rhys Ifans is the Villain in "Spider-Man" Reboot

Posted: October 11th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Rhys Ifans is the Villain in "Spider-Man" RebootSubmit Comment
Columbia Pictures has announced that Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill, Little Nicky) will play the villain in the upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot, joining Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone who will star as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy.

"We have been very fortunate to attract some of the best actors working today to play the villains in the Spider-Man movies," said President of Columbia Pictures. "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."

Director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) added: "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."

The filmmakers prefer to not reveal which character Ifans will be playing in the new film, but rumors suggest that we may see Venom and/or The Lizard.

It is but I can not see him as a villian....although his role in the shortest little nicky was decent for what it was worth

@sc_kg
Good choice for what? You still don't know.

Ifans is a decent actor, just don't know what character he could portray faithfully. I'd guess he was cast as Connors/Lizard but I don't think he'd be the ideal actor for that role. Dylan Baker was a great Connors and after waiting for 3 movies, he f*cking deserved to get the main villain role.

This reboot might be saved by the talent, the director seems apt, so do the actors, it's just an overall bad idea to restart the series. Recasting Maguire and Dunst would've done the job. Motherf*cking Sony.

Rhys Ifans is always good choice.
Btw. love your Emmitt Nervend avatar.

The vulture is looking pretty likely. Perfect body type for it. Would easily be made to look older.

he was great as a crazy bad dude in enduring love..im sure he will make this movie 100 times better

He was really spectacular in the Formula 51 (aka The 51st State), but if he was unleashed with that mantic, Peter Cook-ish style energy, I could see him as Shocker (the electricity enhanced villian), moreso than the Lizard.

And as Venom ? I mean they stunk up the screen like a late fart coming out of a decomposing corpse with Topher Grace ... please, for all that is good and pure in the world ... don't give him Venom.

@Lubai

It was pretty interesting that John Malkovich (the first rumored choice for the Vulture) actually looked more like the comic book villian and would have been a perfect fit (like Jake's ass and Che's c*ck).

Nope. The joke is that Che's mom is willing to take jabs up the ass in exchange for cleaning your apartment.

i liked him in little nicky...i love it when they make comedy films with as many good stars as they can possibly put into it....at least if he's going to play venom we won't have a skinny scrawny looking eddie brock...let us not forget sony, when you try to please the fans, don't forget the f*cking details for crying out loud...eddie brock is supposed to be buff like a jock...not some skinny little spitf*ck like myself, ok well i'm not that skinny lol...whoever's idea it was to cast topher grace as venom really needs to go a rehab clinic...the drug involved in that kind of decision making is far more dangerous than all the dangerous and addictive drugs combined...how that kind of drug exists is beyond me

I think he's gonna be either Vulture or The Lizard. No way on this earth can I picture Ifans as Venom.
Syman404 writes:

He looks like he'd play the Vulture or The Scorpion. I don't want to see him as Lizard, or especially Venom.

What about Mysterio? He's an awesome villain and you don't really need to see his face in the film at all.

Good actor..I would say "The Lizard" if I had to choose.

Should'nt have been remade anyway..but seems to be looking ok.
