And the Spider-Man villain will be …

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We know Rhys Ifans will play the villain in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot, with Andrew Garfield in the hero’s tights.

Now an exclusive scoop on The Wrap claims that Ifans will play The Lizard, as well as (I assume) his alter ego, Dr. Curt Connors.

In the books, Connors is one of Peter Parker’s professors. In an effort to generate a limb, he concocts a potion which transforms him into the scaly, vicious Lizard. It was believed Dylan Baker would become the Lizard, after appearing as the character in three of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films. But if the Wrap is right, Lizard will terrorize Spidey in 2012.

Emma Stone has been cast as love interest Gwen Stacey. The movie, which will be presented in 3-D, opens on July 3, 2012.
