Deadline has broken the news that director Marc Webb has cast the most excellent Rhys Ifan as a villain in the new as-yet-untitled Spider-Man film. He will star opposite the already announced Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy.
Rumors have been swirling that the villain of the film will be — ugh — Venom, which seems dumb considering he was the villain of the last film and we saw how well that went. So who knows? One thing we do know is that rumors about this film cannot be fully trusted (see: Emma Stone is being cast as Mary Jane Watson).
Who will he play? Let the speculation begin!
