According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marc Webb has revealed that BJ Novak is to portray Alistair Smythe in the upcoming Spider-Man movie. Novak is best known for this role in the US version of The Office.
Alistair Smythe, whose name I can’t say without hearing the Kingpin’s voice from the 90’s show, was recently responsible for the death of Marla Jamieson, before meeting his demise at the hands of the Superior Spider-Man. What role Smythe plays in the Amazing Spider-Man is unknown at this point.
Though I’m sure we can speculate.
