SDCC 2011: Amazing Spider-Man (2012): Lizard Villain Description
The Sony Amazing Spider-Man panel was held a bit ago, with director Marc Webb announcing, to no surprise (we've seen pics of scales - see right!), that Rhys Ifans would be Doctor Curt Connors, The Lizard.
What was a surprise - was that Webb brought with him a 3-D clip featuring The Lizard!
io9 was present and posted a good description:
"The CG Lizard appears in a high school girls bathroom (and revealed to two unlucky high school girls). He's a giant beast, green with oversized arms, and a proportionally smaller head and enormous yellow eyes. He doesn't have a crocodile head — more of a cross between a lizard and a human's, with a flat nose, but a grotesque curled mouth. As the two girls are pinned to the wall in fear, a long pink tongue unfurls from his mouth, and we see a row of pointed teeth. The level of detail is impressive — the Lizard actually does look wet, and you can see each individual scale. And yes — he and his tongue were in 3D."
