Spider-Man Reboot to Feature The Lizard as Main Villain
Remember the other day when we told you that Rhys Ifans was cast as the main villain in the ‘Spider-Man’ reboot? Well, apparently it didn’t take long for the villain’s identity to be revealed, as The Wrap claims to have it on good authority that The Lizard will square off against Andrew Garfield’s web slinger when the film arrives in 3D in 2012.
Fans of the franchise will remember that Dylan Baker formerly played the character who was supposed to eventually become The Lizard (he began as Peter Parker’s most trusted professor and mentor), though against the fan’s wishes Sony has re-cast the part and given it to Rhys Ifans, who, admittedly, is the actor more equipped to take on massive amounts of bad-assery.

After all, you never know who’s reading …
Batman Villain Narrowed Down to Killer Croc and The Riddler
We told you yesterday that Tom Hardy has been cast in an unspecified lead role in Christopher Nolan’s next ‘Batman’ movie, though at the time we didn’t know what role that would be. We all assumed it would be that of the film’s main villain, and as of now folks are split on whether he’s playing Killer Croc or The Riddler. My money is on a darker version of The Riddler; one who’s a little less jokey than Jim Carrey’s version in ‘Batman Forever’. Someone big and strong who means business -- someone … like Tom Hardy?
