(Sorry for the hiatus. Things have been hectic here on the home front. While this return to posting does not mean a return to the summer schedule of daily updates, it does mean we will be posting more frequently, primarily during the weekends.)

After a long wait and months of speculation the villain for the upcoming Spider-man reboot has been revealed. It appears that after years of waiting and almost fifty years of existence in the Marvel Universe, the Lizard will finally stalk the silver screen.

The news first trickled in Monday with an announcement from Sony Pictures that prestigious actor Rhys Ifans would be playing the antagonist in the upcoming Spider-man reboot. The decision apparently came after seeing Ifans's stellar performance in the upcoming Sony film Anonymous. (Nerds will be able to see Ifans in the upcoming adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as Xenophilius Lovegood.) Ifans was also apparently chosen for his ability to convey both "warmth and rage". This left many fans speculating on who exactly the actor would be playing. Venom, Carnage, and even Kraven the Hunter were all tossed around.

According to, Ifans will in fact be playing the role of Curt Connors in the 2012 comic book adaptation.

Ifans will star alongside Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy.
