New Images of the Lizard in 'The Amazing Spider-Man' Released

Posted by G-Man (39620 posts) - - Show Bio

There has been talk of a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man and it's supposed to hit the internet later today. Because we don't like to wait, Apple was nice enough to release a couple shots of the Lizard (played by Rhys Ifans and some CGI).

This is the first show showing him in the actual lab coat. The previous glimpses in the trailers and the conceptual images showed him pretty much naked.

== TEASER ==

In the second image, it looks like Peter's going to need to get a new camera. Or maybe Lizard will return it since it does have his name labeled on it.

Keep an eye out for the new trailer which is also supposed to be in front of The Avengers, opening in the U.S. tomorrow.

Sweet Lab Coat Lizard. I wonder if while in Lizard form he is going to be somewhat intelligent.

Too bad this movie is going to be too short :-P

Maybe the lizard wants to take a few self portraits, nice lab jacket. It's seems like the lizards tail is longer,than it was when he was shown in another clip.

The Lizard was always one of my favorite Spidey villains when I was a kid. Now I'm 40 and that same basic sentiment holds true. Lizard, Doc Ock, Gobby, Spider-man has a pretty iconic rogues gallery. Better than any other Marvel character in my mind, really only rivaled by Batman.

Of course I'm extremely biased since Spidey has been my favorite comic since I was 5 years old. :)

LAB COAT! I love him already.

#14 Posted by Duncan (11482 posts) - - Show Bio

Lab coat is still probably gone in the next scene.

The most exciting movie release this summer imo

#16 Posted by Novaar (58 posts) - - Show Bio

I've grown more hopeful of this the more I've seen of it. At first I didn't get Garfield as Parker at all but the trailers have won me over. Ifans is usually good too so I've got my fingers crossed.

Is it me or his face also more snoutlike then before? If so then this is a double plus!

#18 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (82980 posts) - - Show Bio

Not up on my Spidey knowledge, but isnt he suppose to be missing an arm

#19 Posted by SupremeHyperion (1776 posts) - - Show Bio

his arm grows back when he changes to the lizard, that's why he was experimenting with the reptile dna, and I figure he'll have the lab coat on for a couple minutes and then spend the rest of the time barebacking it in scales.

@SupremeHyperion: hey thanks dude.

Yeah! A White Coat! Now he's the Lizard!

Amazing Spider-Man #630

Sweet the Lab Coat is back in action! I'm liking the look but I almost wish that the movie version looked a little more reptilian and a little less humanoid.

Well not specifically lizard like but reptilian in a velociraptor sense. A vaguely humanoid jurassic park raptor in a lab coat would be great.

Looks sweet!!! Can't wait until we get to see a face pic.

In first image the man, whom the Lizzard is trying to kill, is another actor "Irrfan Khan".

It will be interesting to see why Lizzard is after "Irrfan Khan" and how are they connected.

This movie's gonna be awesome!!!!!

Then watch the movie.

Comments like this are why Marvel has basically released a million preview vids for The Avengers. As someone who has seen The Avengers three times, I can say they reveal WAY too much. If you absolutely know you're going to pay to see it, don't watch preview vids. Let the movie entertain you how it's supposed to.

At first I was skeptical if the CGI for the lizard was going to be good or not, but with these pics the CGI looks awesome

Looks like a good movie too me so far. Can't wait!

#32 Posted by GR2Blackout (2931 posts) - - Show Bio

This film's gonna be so freakin' awesome compared to the old films where Tobey Maguire made Peter Parker into Wiener Parker.

No, Dr. Connors was missing an arm which is what led to his studying lizard biology (because of their ability to regrow lost limbs). So he creates a serum based on that research which regrows his arm, but accidentally turns him into a monster as well, hence the Lizard.

Really? Everyone is hyped up cause the lizard is wearing his lab coat? Thats like everyone being hyped up for dark knight rises cause batman is wearing his cape.

Looks good.

Not a big Lizard fan, but looks good.

Loving they put him in the lab coat, even if it's for only a few scenes it's still awesome!

No Basketball head for me. I'll save my $ for Supes instead.

Wouldn't his labcoat shred upon him gaining muscle & transforming into a anthromorphic humanoid lizard creature??

#40 Posted by ImperiousRix (1144 posts) - - Show Bio

Cool beans. He actually looks a lot better in that image than I first anticipated. I think the earlier trailer had him looking a bit too much like a more lizard-y version of The Hulk.

If he stays truer to his comic incarnation, I'd be much happier with this adaptation.

it never does that, like the hulks pants

In the second picture he has peter's camera...

Ha! Much better!

I prefer Liz' in his classic labcoat~

#43 Posted by Zeeguy91 (1368 posts) - - Show Bio

@ZZoMBiE13: Haha, yes I really do agree that Spidey has an impressive rogues gallery. I've always really liked Sandman myself. Anyway, I cannot wait for this movie.

I wish they never rebooted it.

Lizard in the labcoat. Awesomeness! 'Nuff said.

#47 Posted by bpgeraghty (9 posts) - - Show Bio

Loving the fact that the lizard is the new villian. Hes different and not too many people know about him. Love how he is wearing the lab coat like in the comics, and although you dont get a solid look at at him, he looks promising. Also like how they are giving spidey his cartridge back instead of making the audience assume he can generate his own silk/webs

WOW the CG looks sick!
