An Up-Close Look at The Lizard From The Amazing Spider-Man

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly debuts three new images of The Lizard, Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans’ Curt Connors from The Amazing Spider-Man, the Marc Webb-directed franchise reboot.

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and Aunt May (Sally Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance — leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

The film, which opens July 3, also stars Irrfan Khan, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Campbell Scott, C. Thomas Howell, Embeth Davidtz and Annie Parisse.

    Maybe two of you jumped to it immediately, but to assume that MANY other people will think this is to imply that MANY other people remember anything about the Super Mario Bros. movie.

    Heck, I’m as nerdy as the next guy and I remember seeing Super Mario Bros. as a kid, but even I didn’t think of it until you guys brought it up.

    Super Mario ripoff? I think you need a history lesson, friend:

    That’s the Lizard, as originally drawn by Steve Ditko (You know, the guy who designed the Lizard some thirty odd years before the Super Mario Bros. movie dropped). For all the complaining about this design, it’s almost note for note pulled from the original comic book design.
