Rhys Ifans is to play the bad guy in the next Spider-Man film.

Sony Pictures announced that Ifans, widely known as a comic actor in such films as Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant's Notting Hill, will co-star as the villain in the superhero adventure, due out in July 2012.

The studio's announcement notes that the "filmmakers prefer to not reveal which character Ifans will be playing".
