http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Rhys-Ifans-Will-Play-The-Lizard-In-Marc-Webb-s-Spider-Man-Reboot-21196.html

On Monday, the news came down that Welsh actor Rhys Ifans would play the new villain in Sony's Spider-Man reboot, directed by Marc Webb and co-starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. What we didn't know, however, was who he was going to play. Was he to be The Vulture? The new Green Goblin? Carnage? We had no idea - until now.

The Wrap is reporting that The Lizard, also known as Professor Curt Connors, will be the main baddie in the new webslinger film. This will be the first time the character has been portrayed on screen, though Dylan Baker played Connors in the Sam Raimi films. In the comics, Connors is one of Peter Parker's professors, who during an experiment, mutates himself into a giant, alligator-looking monster who roams the sewers of New York City. Just as Webb described in Monday's press release, he is a character very close to Peter Parker, making their final conflict quite complicated.

While I love the fact that the reboot will introduce a villain not seen in Raimi's films, it's hard not to feel sorry for Baker. He spent two movies building up the character, keeping his arm tucked away in his shirt only to get replaced. Then again, nobody said show business was easy.

Can't really say I'm surprised, but it's nice to see them work in a new villain.

Sucks that they're starting over.
I kinda like it, think about it, Dark Knight was EPIC, and if they do this series right Spiderman 1 and 2 can be epic also, if Carnage and Venom are in Spiderman 2 or Carnage in 2 then venom in 3, and they actually get Venom RIGH tthis time, it can be epic.

They said it'll be more actiony and comic-booky, like how Dark Knight was, idk, but I'm excited for this tbh.

Smh, they have some great choices....

Pumped for the lizard.
I only really like the Emma Stone casting, but they got her in the wrong role.

I would have cast Jesse Eisenberg as Spidey and Stone as Mary Jane (both Stone and Eisenberg have good chemistry together). And Baker never would have lost his spot as the Lizard.

Garfield should do just fine. He's a pretty good actor. As for the reboot itself, I don't get it, but in the very least we'll get another perspective on Spider-Man.
