A few days ago we were informed that the fantastic Rhys Ifans would be playing the villain in Marc Webb‘s new reboot of Spider-Man for Sony and Columbia Pictures. The problem was that they wouldn’t say who exactly Ifans would be playing in the movie.

This matched with the news earlier today that Tom Hardy would be in Batman 3, but that his part was also unknown, had us a little fearful that an aggravating Hollywood habit may be forming. But alas, not but a few days later, it has been unearthed just who Ifans will become before he battles Spider-Man to the death, and that, my friends, is The Lizard.

Ifans will play Dr. Curt Conners, a character played by Dylan Baker in Sam Raimi’s films, which fans had been demanding be utilized by bringing Lizard in as a villain in the movies. Curt Conners lost his arm in war, after enlisting and becoming a battlefield surgeon. After that, he researched limb regeneration common in certain reptiles, and after a successful test on a rabbit, tried the procedure on himself. His arm did grow back, but ultimately it turned him into human/reptilian hybrid that would come to be known as Lizard.

You’ve demanded this villain for a while now, so are we all happy now? Or is this not the casting you’d like to see?
