He’s honored to even be considered.
Sony has offered the villain role in the Spider-man reboot to Rhys Ifans. You may remember him as the slovenly roommate in Notting Hill, or a lot more things if you’re British. No word yet on exactly which villain he’ll be playing though. I’m getting a Green Goblin vibe from him, but I suppose he could also be Venom with the right black unitard. If Ifans does in fact play Green Goblin he already has experience creating his own aviation contraptions.
Spidey doesn’t stand a chance. (Deadline)
