So the guessing can finally stop. When it was reported a couple months ago that The Office’s B.J. Novak joined the cast, everybody was guessing who he’d play. The actor didn’t make it any easier by only hinting that his character works for Oscorp and was apart of the original comic books. The two characters everybody believed he could possibly play were Doctor Octopus or Spencer Smythe(creator of the Spider-Slayer robots designed to kill Spider-Man). Well director Marc Webb let everybody know who he will be playing on Twitter- Alistair Smythe. Alistair is the son of Spencer Smythe and soon takes over for his father and becomes Ultimate Spider-Slayer. Novak reports that he is only in a few scenes so im expecting his character to be introduced now, but play a bigger part in the future films.
