Sony Pictures Entertainment has reportedly offered the role of the primary villain in the upcoming SPIDER-MAN reboot to Rhys Ifans. There is no word yet on which bad guy Ifans would play if he does accept the role.

The inclusion of Gwen Stacy (the recently-cast Emma Stone) in the film seems to hint at an appearance from the Goblin in the film, but there have also been rumors that Venom would be the main baddie. I must respectfully put forth my feeling that Ifans would make a stellar Goblin, but a truly off-the-mark Venom.

What do you think? Is Ifans a good pick for either the Goblin or Venom? Or do you have another Spidey villain you'd like to see him take on?
