Forget Pez, get a better look at what Lizard looks like in Amazing Spider-Man

Nov. 30, 2011by: Mike Sampson

Yesterday brought the biggest news in the Pez world since Jerry Seinfeld left Tweety on Elaine's lap as the candy dispenser gave as our first hint at what the Lizard would like in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. But today, we have an even better look.

Russian site SpiderMedia.ru has a look at some promotional art for The Lizard. This was earlier on in the design process so he'll look more muscular and bulky in the film, but this is pretty much what you're going to get in the film. And?...

Not a huge fan. He's too much man and not enough lizard. This may be splitting hairs but he needs to have the protruded snout. This looks like something from an episode of "The X-Files." Of course, seeing a grainy scan of a promo image isn't exactly the best way to judge the villain in a superhero movie so I'll be curious to see how he looks and moves in the trailer. What do you guys think?

But the question is will Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo reprise their roles.

(Negative) But for another reason

I suppose this is a stupid gripe for a movie fan in 2011 but why'd you have to post the picture on the freakin' front page? I've been avoiding this "spoiler" on every single movie website, because I'm tired of spoilers. I can't believe I come to good ol' JoBlo and I have no choice but get a nice big close up of the villain who even the usually spoiler happy marketing department has kept under wraps. Oh well, looks cool.

I don't get how seeing what a character looks like is a spoiler. No plot or story is ruined.

its not about the "spoiler" its about going into a movie that you probably have a soft spot for without a bias opinion. And not want to get disappointed prior too. Or develop high expectations then inevitably it disappoints. Solidsnake and many movie fans, just want to go into certain movies fresh and have a nice sort of rush or excitement leading up too, and they take great lengths to do so. Then Joblo (other sites too) don't take that into consideration when publishing stories, and ruin it

The thing to remember here is that he doesn't just HULK out and instantly change into a Lizard, its a slower process. Think of the transformation in THE FLY, this could just be an inbetween stage where he still has some humanity left.

It has been said a dozen times that, unlike in the comics, it will be a slow progression. First he develops scales, then maybe turns green and so on and so forth.
As such, we don't know if this is the final product or if he gets even more lizardy.
So people should calm down and wait for a trailer that shows him. Crazy thought I know.

...Product Of Baby Fucking

This looks like if Lord Voldemort met Bossk & they had a baby. And then, meanwhile, Killer Croc & that Super Mario Bros. movie goomba met & had a baby...& by some miracle, those two babies met & FUCKED - THIS would the SHIT that they birthed! Yes sir...This is the product of Baby Fucking.

I don't know what it is. Hollywood seems incapable of actually taking risks and making beloved characters look like what they're supposed to look like.

Alright fine, I can accept the notion they're trying to make characters more "realistic" and fit into a "real" world. But let's get something straight here. The notion of "realistic" goes out the window when the basis of your film is a guy that dresses up as a spider and swings around the city using canisters of pseudo webbing to fight

With that said, I don't understand why it's so difficult to make The Lizard look like The Lizard. This photo makes him look like the bastard child of Voldemort and The Creature from the Lagoon

"He's too much man and not enough lizard"?

What were you expecting, a Dilophosaurus in a lab coat? I think having a good mix of human features and lizard qualities are what make the Lizard such a sympathetic villain. He's meant to look like an experiment gone wrong, not the offspring of the late dinosaurs.

Still, I will give it a chance. If I'd avoided Dark Knight because I wasn't a fan of Heath Ledger, then I would be a very different fan boy right now...

While I'm not crazy about it it's not THAT bad. It really kinda looks like the classic Ditko Lizard, which was a cool design.

Why?

Why are people now bitching about the way the lizard looks? Everyone complains that comic book movies always mess up characters and the way they look, and for once this is spot on with the books! This looks EXACTLY like the original Ditko lizard drawing (minus the labcoat, and that's not good enough?

Also, like others have said, this will most likely not be his final look. There have already been pics from comic con released where he has a much more lizard-like face. Everyone needs to settle

I'm not liking it, but I don't think this is the final render for the look. I want to see a full blown lizard since they chose this out of place villain.

I'll wait to see it in action before I judge. I'm sure it would look better hearing it talk through a human mouth than a cgi protruded snout. Still don't like spider-man's costume changes though.

I really really want this movie to be great considering I am a huge fan of Spider Man, but with everything that I have seen has me convinced that I do not want to leave the fence that I am on yet about this film.

I like the creativity, but hopefully this isn't the final appearance of what he is supposed to look like.
