We hope C. Thomas Howell isn't in timeout.
The actor, who has a role in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man accidentally revealed the identity of the villain in the highly anticipated reboot during an interview with Movieweb.
Sony wants us to be hush-hush right now. I play a relatively small role. I play a construction worker whose son is caught in the middle of a battle between the Lizard and Spider-Man on the Manhattan bridge. Spider-Man helps me get my son back from this perilous situation.
We can't help but think that Sony is happy with Howell's slip. We already known Rhys Ifans had been cast as the movie's baddie but up until know fans could only speculate which baddie that would be.
Howell continues talking about his role in the movie.
Spider-man is kind of hurting. I help him when all of the other people won't. Part of the story is, the nation thinks he might be a bad guy. They don't know what to think. Because of my experience on the bridge with my kid, I know he is a good guy. I pitch in and help out at the end. That is the best way.
Spider-Man fans will remember Lizard (Dr. Curt Connors) as a supervillain who appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #6 (November 1963). Dr. Curt Connors, played Dylan Baker, appears in Spider-Man 2 and 3 but he never becomes Lizard. who is lizard? >>
