Every movie needs a villain, or at least an adversary, even a movie about a man trying to protect against a great flood caused by a higher power.
For those thinking that the upcoming Noah would be simply about Russell Crowe constructing a giant ark, the latest featurette explains that Noah's "principal nemesis" is Tubal Cain (Ray Winstone). In the Bible, Tubal Cain was only described as a forger of weapons, and is a descendant of the first Cain, who murdered his brother Abel, so perhaps it wasn't too much of a stretch to think that Tubal wasn't the greatest guy either. As Crowe and co-writer Ari Handel (Black Swan) explain, Noah and Tubal also have philosophical differences as well.
Noah was directed by Darren Aronofsky (The Fighter, Black Swan) and co-stars Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Jennifer Connelly. Noah opens on March 28.
