As the release of The Amazing Spider-Man draws ever closer, catch up with the big bad of the piece, Rhys Ifans.

Total Film spoke to the charming, ever-grinning Welshman at Sony’s press conference in Cancun, where he spoke about Dr Curtis Connors (AKA the Lizard), the magic of CGI, and his own personal relationship to comic books.

A bundle of manic energy, Ifans has a refreshingly laidback approach to the Hollywood blockbuster, and provides and endearing everyman’s viewpoint onto the ginormous set. Keep your eyes peeled for further interviews with Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb, coming soon.

The Amazing Spider-Man opens on 3 July 2012.
