Notting Hill star Rhys Ifans is set to follow in the footsteps of Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina after signing on to play the new SPIDER-MAN villain.
The Welsh actor will join new webslinger Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in the cast of the Marc Webb-directed blockbuster.
Sony bosses have declined to reveal which villain Ifans will play in the film.
As well as Molina and Dafoe, the Spider-Man bad guys have been played by Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace.
