Official film stills of The Lizard finally creep their way online

05.03.2012

Spiderman Banner

I spoke yesterday of agreeing with those of you who wanted to see a more beastly version of one of Spider-Man's oldest foes, and now my wish has come true. At least to a degree, anyway. Having up until now only seen polished, standalones version of The Lizard from this summer's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, it's refreshing to finally get a glimpse of his scale against the world he inhabits. Even if the picture is blurry and I still think the head looks funky, at least we have ourselves something a bit more concrete to work with.

Strangely, while normally I'm all for the "Nolan Method" of preserving a character's true self and leaving their methods and madness only hinted at until opening night, with THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN I keep wanting to see more. It's an awfully tricky line to walk between saving the right sort of information that makes me salivate for the final product and simply frustrating me because I'm so damn curious. And I don't know why THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN has fallen squarely into the latter category, but it has. Anyone else feeling that way?

And what do you all think of this new, better look at The Lizard?

Updated: These two pictures are stills from the new trailer that drops today at 7pm ET/4pm PT (you can also check out in front of THE AVENGERS).

Extra Tidbit: Seems like someone is definitely a student of SE7EN and Fincher, based on that glimpse of a scene so bathed in green... but then again, what smart filmmaker isn't?

Thank goodness, a lab coat.

Maybe this will finally quell some of the Internet fanboy rage. Someone drew a lab coat in a comic book once, and you know once that happens, it becomes character gospel and MUST NOT EVER BE CHANGED!!!

I'd prefer a snout, but I'll admit The Lizard looks good in those photos. If he was being used in Spider-man 4, and not a rehash of an origin story, I'd actually be excited for this.

Wow, what a seriously lame-ass plot device. Peter Parker (dressed as Spidey) puts his REAL NAME on the back of his camera that he uses to snap pics of himself in costume fighting bad guys.

You mean people aren't whining and bitching about this movie for once? Alert the presses!

At first I was skeptical about the darker, grittier tone they've taken with the reboot, as I was a fan of Raimi's more upbeat series. But then I realized it's a better environment for an eventual Venom/Carnage storyline, so I'm actually excited now.

Ok, see, now this looks cool. Loving the detail in the hand and claws as well as the overall size of him.
Its funny how the simple inclusion of a white lab coat makes him look so much better. But yeah, if they had just gone with the snout, this would've been perfect. Still, these 2 shots alone have increased my interest.

Looks great, and a new trailer will be here any day now, so I'm sure we'll see a lot more lizard in that one!

Well get over it. Sorry if I sound harsh there, but really you don't hear anyone complaining that Heath Ledger's Joker didn't have naturally white skin or green hair but instead painted/dyed it. Besides, this is STILL the Lizard. An earlier version of him, yes, but a version nonetheless.

And I prefer it to be honest. It plays into the PURPOSE of the Lizard as an origin villain. He's there to mirror Peter's transformation but get the ugly end of it. But he still has humanity there. He's not

He's not ALL monster. I think they know what they're doing with him, especially having him as the origin villain. It makes a lot of sense when you really think about it.
