Well we have an answer! The wrap is reporting that Rhys Ifans will be playing Doctor Connors/the Lizard in Mark Webb’s Spider-Man reboot. I’m a little sad I didn’t put any money on it because the Lizard was my first guess. He will be facing off against Andrew Garfiled’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man and likely Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy.
Spider-Man’s release date is set to July 3, 2012.
