We have our Peter Parker in the form of Andrew Garfield, however an equally important casting decision has yet to be made: Who is going to kidnap Mary Jane-Watson? Even though Marc Webb and Sony are rebooting the Spider-Man franchise it is likely the nemesis will borrow Parker’s girlfriend at some point, or his Aunt, so a talented actor will be required carry out the deed.
Back in June we heard that Michael Fassbender was wanted for an unspecified villain role, but he decided to play the Master of Magnetism in X-Men: First Class instead. Now Production Weekly is reporting that Sony has an interest in Oscar winning actor Christoph Waltz for the villain role, which may or may not be The Lizard.
Following his turn as Col. Hans Landa in Inglourious Basterds Waltz been offered many roles, mostly villains, and he will be seen in The Green Hornet opposite Seth Rogen in January. From the sounds of things Sony is just interested at this point, however there is the question of whether Waltz would be willing to play the villain in another superhero movie.
With filming set to start in December we will be hearing casting confirmations over the upcoming months, and we will finally find out whether Peter Parker will be facing off against The Lizard or another foe. Who do you want to play the villain?
