The Spider-Man reboot villain is The Lizard?


The Wrap is reporting this morning that they have confirmation that the Spider-Man reboot villain will in fact be Curt Connors/The Lizard. They also received confirmation that despite rumors to the contrary; Venom will not be showing up in the reboot. This is interesting news as The Lizard was rumored to be the villain in Raimi’s Spider-Man 4, but Movieline reported in December of 2009 that  “the suits simply can’t bring themselves to sign off on such an odd-looking enemy”. That would make the choice of The Lizard as the reboot villain pretty interesting.
