"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
After months of virtual secrecy, the doors have flung open on Columbia Pictures’ reptile house. First, there was the PEZ dispenser featuring the head of The Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man, and now, courtesy of SpiderMedia.ru, there emerges what appears to be concept art for a fully transformed Curt Connors from director Marc Webb’s franchise reboot.
Superhero Hype notes The Lizard here is similar to how he appeared in a clip shown at Comic-Con International, although in the video “he was more massive” — suggesting perhaps that this is early concept art.
The Amazing Spider-Man, which opens July 3, stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field, Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Julianne Nicholson and Annie Parisse.
