Rhys Ifans will play a villain in the next Spider-Man film

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".

Any goal worth attaining involves personal sacrifice. Stop waiting for a miracle to occur. Take charge of your destiny.More
