Debunked: Waltz Not Playing the Next Spider-Man Villain

Last week, a rumor surfaced that Inglourious Basterds star Christoph Waltz will play the villain in Sony Pictures’ Untitled Spider-Man Film. SuperHeroHype has spoken directly to sources inside the production and there is definitively no truth to this rumor… a blogger’s wishful thinking perhaps? Our sources say that when the role is cast, there will be a great actor involved.

The only things that are certain right now is that Marc Webb is directing, that Andrew Garfield will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man, and that the film hits 3D and 2D theaters on July 3, 2012. We’ll let you know as soon as more news breaks about the film.

Waltz can next be seen playing the villain Chudnofsky in The Green Hornet on January 14, followed by The Three Musketeers 3D and Water for Elephants, both interestingly scheduled for an April 15 release.
