While it’s true that 2011 was a banner year for superhero films – Green Hornet, Thor, X-Men: First Class, Green Lantern, and Captain America – 2012 is destined to be a banner year for major superhero films like The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Amazing Spider-Man.

Speaking of the Spider-Man reboot, Rhys Ifans – the man who’s playing Spider-Man’s kindest rogue, Dr. Connors (A.K.A. The Lizard) – recently spoke in detail about his role in the upcoming film.

On what makes The Lizard so special – courtesy of MTV Splash Page – Rhys Ifans said:

“The majority of comic book villains are pure evil, but Curt Connors is an exception. Curt Connors is a good man who initially wants to save the world but he gets hungry and greedy and reckless and he pays the price for that.”
