First Look at THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN’S The Lizard! (Sort of!)

     May 3, 2011


One of the challenges facing Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man is how to bring the film’s villain, The Lizard (played by Rhys Ifans), to life.  On the page, you can just see “Oh.  He’s like a tiny dinosaur wearing a lab coat.  How about that.”  On screen, however, that may look a little silly and I’m sure there have been plenty of make-up tests and various designs to find a convincing look that not only is scary and effective, but also allows for Ifans to emote.

The production has taken care to make sure that fans don’t get a look a character before it’s ready (which is why an official image of Spidey was released before the inevitable set photos).  So if you’re wondering why Rhys Ifans has a bag over his face in the image above [via Pink is the New Blog], that’s why.  The Amazing Spider-Man also stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.  It opens in 3D on July 3, 2012.
