Spider-Slayer in Amazing Spider-Man 2
B.J. Novak has widely been known to have screen time in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2, but it’s been tight-lipped as to who he will be playing…..till now!
Marc Webb revealed on his Twitter account a few hours ago that B.J. Novak is playing Alistair Smythe… the son of the, “Spider Slayer!” The Spider Slayer is a formidable foe for Spider-Man making his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #19. At one time Slistiar Smythe had to use a wheelchair but after regaining his ability to walk he became the Spider Slayer.
The details on Novak’s version of Smythe is still hush hush, so it will be interesting to see how large of a character he turns out to be. Yesterday’s new trailer said Spider-Man’s enemies were uniting against him, so I guess we can add one more to that list. Though it remains to be seen if we’re just getting introduced to his character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or if we’re going to be getting the full, “Spider Slayer” treatment. Should be interesting to see.
