Rhys Ifans, who recently played The Lizard in 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' has just been cast in 'Alice in Wonderland 2' as the father of Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, even though Ifans is four years Depp's junior. The magic of cinema!
While HBO will be losing a number of major series in the coming year, Showtime's own loss of 'Dexter' and the impending 'Californication' has necessitated some new blood of its own.

Whether you count yourself an 'Elementary' or 'Sherlock' fan, you had to admit that the CBS procedural managed to distinguish itself quite a bit from its spiritual predecessor, and with a much more accessible schedule.

Earlier this year we learned that 'The Amazing Spider-Man' baddie Rhys Ifans would take his talents to the small screen as Sherlock's brother, Mycroft, on 'Elementary,' but the one-time 'Danny Deckchair' star seems to have set his sights on a more permanent home.

'The Amazing Spider-Man' star Rhys Ifans will take the iconic role, but for how long?

To reboot a successful franchise not long after its last film is test that Marc Webb's 'The Amazing Spider-Man' will have to pass. Sam Raimi's first 'Spider-Man' came out ten years ago today, and he finished his run five years ago. Are audiences ready for another spin around the park? Perhaps they'll be more excited after this new trailer.
