"Spider-Man" Billy Connors Audition Video Confirms The Lizard? Chris Zylka Confirmed As Well?

This is not confirmed to actually be related to the Spider-Man reboot, but it is strongly likely. The Hollywood Reporter made clear in its article reporting John Slattery and Sam Elliott were in talks to play J. Jonah Jameson; and that currently the reboot is under the name "Untitled Teen/Action Film".

Now this video shows a young kid actor Stuart Allan, who does not seem to have a resume, auditioning for a role as "Billy" in "Untitled Teen/Action Film." The way the scene plays out, it is almost without question meant to be between Billy and his father, Dr. Curt Connors who becomes the Lizard. What is major about this video, however, is that this is clearly a confirmation that The Lizard is the villain. HELL YES!

Now on to the next bit of news. I reported not too long ago that Chris Zylka was cast in an unspecified role in the "Spider-Man" reboot. Well, after some digging, Chris was tweeted a congratulations for getting role in the "Spider-Man" film, and what did Chris tweet back? "Thank you." Confirmation? I think so!




Also, I was tipped by a friend that Chris Zylka will indeed play Eugene "Flash" Thompson. I don't want to get into specifics!

"Spider-Man" is expected for release July 3, 2012 directed by Marc Webb, starring Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Rhys Ifans (Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard), Sally Field (Aunt May Parker), Martin Sheen (Uncle Ben Parker), Chris Zylka (Eugene "Flash" Thompson?) with rumors saying Zooey Deschanel (Betty Brant) and Denis Leary (Captain George Stacy) as well as possibly Stuart Allan (Billy Connors).

Really hoping this movie pans out awesome. Good find, went well with my coffee.

I'm pretty sure that's how you have to act/be when your a kid trying to make it into the big time. All bubbly and over-excited. Totally taking that approach to my next job interview.

How is this confirmation that the villain is the Lizard? It probably is, but did I miss something that suggests the Lizard?

lizard is an awesome choice for villain,hope we get treated to another one as well.

@SpiderManFan - I suppose, but it's a leap. It's not confirmation so much as it's speculation. But fair enough. And your English is just fine. :)

As long as its not ULTIMATE LIZARD lol.... you know what WEBB's like! : P

I thought the "confirmation" was more the fact that his Dad is being mysterious anc secluded and "billy" seemed scared/worried about him.... Or was that not the hint?

How is his dad supposed to play ball with one arm?

Awesome find! I found out from the link on Wikipedia. He looks like a great fit for Flash. I'm hoping he gets some more time so we could see some funny dialogue between him and Peter. And Stuart looks like a nice choice for Billy. Can't wait for filming to start! :)

@McGinnis
Maybe he's wearing a prosthetic arm? I remember from the "Spectacular Spider-Man" cartoon that Curt wore a prosthetic arm to still go about his days.
