"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Despite the best efforts of Columbia Pictures to keep details of The Amazing Spider-Man under wraps, one of the biggest secrets of the franchise reboot — what the scaly antagonist the Lizard will look like — appears to have been revealed by, of all things, PEZ. Warning: Spoilers, I guess?
ComicBookMovie has stumbled across licensed PEZ dispensers depicting Spider-Man in his redesigned film costume, and the Lizard … being all green and khaki. They’re only busts of the characters, so we’ll have to wait a while longer to see Rhys Ifans’ Curt Connors in his full reptilian glory, claws, tail and all.
Of course, given the frequency with which merchandising tie-ins spoil otherwise well-guarded effects details, we probably won’t have to wait too long.
Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Julianne Nicholson and Annie Parisse. The film opens July 3.
