BJ Novak confirmed to be ‘Spider Slayer’ villain Alistair Smythe in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’

Director Marc Webb has confirmed the identity of one his actor’s roles in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Webb confirmed on Twitter that the Office star BJ Novak will play villain Alistair Smythe.

Alistair is the son of Spider-Slayer robots creator Spencer Smythe, and he continues his father’s mission to terminate Spider-Man, fighting as The Ultimate Spider-Slayer.

Is seems unlikely that much of the backstory will be included in this film, but it appears to be a perfect component for the upcoming sequels or the spin-offs that Sony has planned.

Spider-Man will already battle Electro, played by Jamie Foxx, Rhino, who is Paul Giamatti in a massive metal suit and Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin.

The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.

Synopsis: We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
