Check out some Amazing Spider-man concept art for alternate Lizard and costume designs

Jul. 6, 2012by: Alex Maidy

One of the cool things of any movie production is seeing what the filmmakers alternatives were to what we see on screen. Concept art is one of the most interesting aspects of the making of a movie. It does get dangerous, however, when you stray too far from the source material. When you have a character as iconic as Spider-man, changing things like the costume can alienate fans.

Having seen THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, I can say the costume change did not bother me. In fact it seems more like a costume a high school kid would be able to make on his own. I never quite figured out how the Raimi version of the costume was even sewn as it looked like it was made of rubber.

Here are some concepts that were thrown around for the redesigned Spidey suit before they settled on something a little closer to the classic version. There are also a couple of looks at an alternative Lizard design. Again, despite outcries leading up to the release of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, the problem is not with the Lizard redesign but rather the somewhat shitty CGI they used.

While I certainly do not agree with the bashing of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN that I have seen on this site, the movie did have a lot of holes in both plot and direction. I loved the Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy relationship but thought the redone origin was unnecessary.

Do you prefer any of these alternatives to what we got on the big screen? Let us know below!

Extra Tidbit: Denis Leary was completely wasted. His character was one of the best parts of the movie.

Lizard concept art is better...

Am I the only one who thinks The Lizard in the concept art above is WAY better than what ended up in the movie? The one above looks more menacing, more grizzly, more reptilian, and way more "icky", for lack of a better word. Damn. Concept art is great when I know the final choice is better, but seeing this makes me wish this version of The Lizard made it into the film instead.

I like the first Spidey suit, IF they trimmed in the red around the stomach. The way it is in the pic makes him look fat.

Extra Tidbit: Leary actually kinda sucked in the movie. At one point, during the dinner scene, I feared he was going to break into his stale 90's angry comedy schtick, like he did at the end of Demolition Man.

I'm not really big on the alternate designs for the Spider-Man costume, the first one is the most classic-looking but the digital model they dressed it up in looks really weird. The Lizard concept art reminds me more of a fish, somehow.

hmmm

Im gonna disagree with Antarius i think the 4th one is the worst, call me old fashion, but ever since i was a child in the late 70/early80s i have always been a spiderman fan, certain things dont need to be changed, im not a fan of the new costume in this movies, but that hasnt stopped me from watching it. As the lizard, i like some of the art i saw yesterday, made him look better, also not a fan of the movie version, all i cant think of when i see him is the super mario movie "goomba's"

i always like the webbed cape look when its in the comics or cartoons so this might have worked for the movie as well.

Lizard was just a bland villain

Overall they really made Lizard as boring as possible. It doesn't matter how bad the CG looked, he was just a wasted villain. They really needed to build up to him like they were in Raimi's movies. Just throwing Connors on screen for 15 minutes and turning him into lizard sucked. Spidey's suit grew on me, I really didn't mind it. I just hate how they forced drama on the audience. Too many crying scenes (1 every 10 minutes) and when he gets injured, that was BS. They just needed to pad out the

Bad pacing, bad script, bad villain.

I thought the costume in the movie was quite good. However that 4th pic is just downright bad-ass. Would have loved to see that look in action. The alternate lizard looks terrible however. I like the look they went with.
