Rhys Ifans on Amazing Spider-Man Director Marc Webb

Rhys Ifans chatted briefly with the Orlando Sentinel about The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb.

"I dipped my toe into 'Harry Potter,' but I put my whole body into 'Spider-Man,'" said Ifans, who plays Dr. Curt Connors / The Lizard.  "It was a thrill to work with Marc Webb. He's like Roland Emmerich. He's doing blockbusters, but he has an 'indie' heart, an indie character-oriented sensibility. That was a very telling thing on the set. We knew it would be action-packed and epic and all that. But Marc made sure that the human dynamic was paramount, and that's going to elevate the film possibly to a place that the other [ Spider Man] films got to."

We will see when The Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on July 3, 2012.
