New Spider-Man Movie Villain Confirmed as The Lizard


On Friday, during an interview with the Movieweb about his small role in the upcoming Spider-Man remake, actor C. Thomas Howell accidentally let slip a major plot point - that the villain of the piece will be The Lizard.

Here’s what he said:

There is not a whole lot to talk about. Sony wants us to be hush-hush right now. I play a relatively small role. I play a construction worker who’s son is caught in the middle of a battle between the Lizard and Spider-Man on the Manhattan bridge. Spider-Man helps me get my son back from this perilous situation. There is some payback there at the end of the movie. Spider-man is kind of hurting. I help him when all of the other people won’t. Part of the story is, the nation thinks he might be a bad guy. They don’t know what to think. Because of my experience on the bridge with my kid, I know he is a good guy. I pitch in and help out at the end. That is the best way


There is also some speculation that the role may be played by Rhys Ifans.

The new movie is directed by Marc Webb, and is set to reboot the Spider-Man movie franchise with a much younger Peter Parker, who is still in high-school. The film is said to take its inspiration from Ultimate Spider-Man, by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley - but let’s home that they don’t all talk in Bendis dialogue!

The cast includes Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, as well as Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Julianne Nicholson and Annie Parisse.
