SPIDER-MAN Reboot Update: Villian Revealed – RHYS IFANS To Play THE LIZARD

RHYS IFANS

Or should we say IFANS – who was just confirmed for the role of the villian a couple days ago – is playing the guy who turns into the Lizard. This wouldn’t be the first time producers involved with the franchise have flirted with having the Lizard as the principle foe in a SPIDER-MAN movie as THRALL WORLD posted late last year just before SONY decided to scrap everything and start over with a new creative team and cast.

No confirmation from SONY just yet but word on the street is that:

Rhys Ifans will play Dr. Curt Connors, better known as The Lizard, in Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man.”

It’s Official: EMMA STONE As GWEN STACY In New SPIDER-MAN Reboot

October 9, 2010

There seemed to be some confusion on the part of the interwebz about whether or not red-haired EMMA STONE would play red-haired MARY JANE WATSON or blond-haired GWEN STACY.

Regardless of the hair, Stone has been slected to portray the role of GWEN STACY. And there seems to be a lot of importance attached to this casting so THRALL WORLD is led to believe that MJ might not figure as prominent in the SPIDER-MAN initial reboot movie as producers rewind and start anew the telling of the popular comic book hero.

EMMA STONE [ZOMBIELAND] has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming Spider-Man film film from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, it was announced today by Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures.

Stone has been tapped for the role of GWEN STACY opposite ANDREW GARFIELD [THE SOCIAL NETWORK, THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS] as Peter Parker.

The film, to be directed by Marc Webb [(500) DAYS OF SUMMER] from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and produced by Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin, will begin production in December and will be released in theaters nationwide in 3D on July 3, 2012.

Sebastian Stan [GOSSIP GIRL, KINGS], one of the actors who tested for the title role of Marvel’s “Captain America” which ultimately went to Chris Evans, has nabbed the key role of Captain America’s sidekick Bucky Barnes.

In comic book lore, Barnes, a teenaged orphan, was too young to join the army but became one camp’s mascot. When he discovered Captain America’s identity, he joined Captain America as a partner in his Nazi-fighting escapades. The character died in Captain America’s final World War II adventure.

Insiders also say Stan has signed on for five or six pictures.

Read more HERE.

THRALL WORLD is aware of the talented Sebastian Stan from the cancelled NBC sci-fi show ‘KINGS’ which also starred IAN MCSHANE.

‘THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA’ will hit theaters July 22, 2011.
