It was only a couple of days ago that Sony's Columbia Pictures announced that Welsh actor Rhys Ifans would play the villain in director Marc Webb's reboot of 'Spider-Man.' But the studio left us all hanging as to just which villain that might be.

Well, according to TheWrap, Ifans will play Dr. Curt Connors, better known as the Lizard (who was played by Dylan Baker in Sam Raimi's two 'Spider-Man' sequels). And, citing two individuals familiar with the project, TheWrap goes on to say that, despite rumors throughout the blogosphere, Venom will not appear in the new film.
