Rhys Ifans will play villain to Spider-Man leads Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. Sony's Spider-Man reboot is signing the Welsh supporting player (Greenberg, Notting Hill, Vanity Fair), who also co-stars in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and Passion Play, opposite Megan Fox and Mickey Rourke.

Neither Sony or director Marc Webb will confirm which villain Ifans will play--it could be Parker and Stacy vs. the Goblin or Venom. All should be revealed by the time production begins in December. Spider-Man lands in 3-D on July 4th weekend, 2012.
