Rhys Ifans Is Some Sort of Spider-Man Villain

October 11, 2010


Now that Marc Webb has finally figured out who's going to be Peter Parker's would-be girlfriend in his superhero reboot, the director has quickly moved on to the issue of the film's enemy, casting Rhys Ifans as a character named in the press release only as "the villain." Columbia offered no other hints as to who which dastardly scoundrel the Human Nature star would be playing, but Webb did tease the dual-nature of the character's relationship to Spider-Man, adding, "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." So time to think, which member of the Spider-Man rogues gallery always has a greasy mess of hair whisps matted to his head?
