Amazing Spider-Man rumor reveals potentially cool Lizard set piece?

Feb. 22, 2011by:
This news is a completely unconfirmed rumor, but one that could be a potential spoiler if true. You've been warned.

According to a website called BigFanBoy.com, Marc Webb's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN will be featuring a big action sequence near the end of the film where Spidey will fight off a gaggle of S.W.A.T. police officers. Thing is, all the cops are actually lizards! Here's more from BigFanBoy:

"...many of the stunt actors in the film have been spending time in heavy make-up for hours on end because of a fight scene in the film where they’re turning all the S.W.A.T. team guys into reptilian creatures..."

The assumption would be that The Lizard, being played by Rhys Ifans, is the one responsible for causing this mayhem of scaly proportions. That is a safe assumption, right? I'm reading things about how this could actually be related to Irrfan Khan and the Proto-Goblin (who doesn't actually appear in the film). I'm not that well-versed in Spidey lore, but it'd be interesting to know if something like this has been tackled in the comics. If this scenario sounds familiar to anyone, let us know below.
Extra Tidbit: Should this turn out to be true, major props already to Webb and company for going with prosthetics over some sort of CGI.

Haha this sounds a little ridiculous. But then again, a skinny man swinging from building to building on webs is equally as ridiculous. Touche, Reboot. Touche.

Strange indeed. I can envision this like the fight with Neo against the 100s of Agent Smith in the park scene, but obviously a little 10x better.

This sounds like an awful idea. But I'm willing to wait until I see the final product until I judge. No point getting upset over nothing.

It could just be a dream sequence at end of the movie to tease the sequel

Spoiler?!

I for one would welcome them FINALLY doing a lizard movie. I mean they've only been alluding to it for the last three films. But the reason I'm writing is if you're going to mention that this article may contain a spoiler, It might behoove you to not mention it in the article's title. I mean I know you need a quick hook and all to get fans to read it, but come on. Bit more tact please.

Nothing spoilerific about the title. We all knew the Lizard was the villain. The subject line doesn't say "lizard army" or anything.

Where's Raimi When You Need Him?

The more I hear and see of this reboot, the more terrible it sounds. This latest rumor just sounds awful!

Sorry, ShonK. I respect your opinion but SpiderMan 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever made in my book and you can't tell me this reboot sounds or looks even remotely good.

Agreed on SM2...better than SM1 even. SM3...well, that is where Raimi dropped the ball. Not enough to reboot the whole thing though. I'm tired of Spider-Man and truly hope this flops so that Hollywood gets the message that there IS a limit to how soon a reboot can take place.

Less is more

I don't know why Hollywood is thinking that we always want more of everything. More Action, more villains, more effects... That's bullshit. One cool Villain and a good story is more than enough!

Lizard

The Lizard's original diabolical plan was to turn regular ppl into lizards under his control. He actually didn't appear as much as you might think in the early days even though his first appearance was in the 10 issues.

Through out he year he's been molded into more of a vicious animal then a mad scientist. His best story is in Spider Man: Torrment whre he is beening controlled by Kravens which doctor wife and is killing ppl in New York.

No offense, but "Torment" is one of the worst Spidey stories ever--it's name sums up the feeling one gets from reading it.

This sounds awesome. I can already see this being cool on the big screen.

Can't wait for this movie.

I think I remember this...you defeat the lackeys right before the big boss comes out near the end of the video game.

If its anything like the Xmen/Spiderman story being drawn by Bachalo, where Lizard is contaminating loads of people, it should be spectacular.
