The villain of Spider-Man reboot revealed?

Rhys Ifans will be playing Curt Connors, the scientist who becomes the Lizard, in the new Spider-Man movie reboot, according to The Wrap. Not clear if the Lizard is the only villain in the movie, but the unnamed source does say that Venom won't be in the film at all. Here's hoping there's only one villain and Ifans gets to develop this character. (And too bad for Dylan Baker, who played Curt Connors in Sam Raimi's Spidey movies, but never got to transform into the Lizard.) [The Wrap]
