Lizard Video Blog Spider-Man

"He believes he's doing the right thing." Earlier today, the viral campaign for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man picked up again with a location pick up that included clues linked to Dr. Curt Connors, the friend of Peter Parker who becomes his foe, The Lizard. After wrapping up with an internship video, the viral site at Oscorp Industries updated to reveal one more clue. The #LizardTrail has finally reached an end, and our prize this time is a video blog on Rhys Ifans as Dr. Connors. There's a lot of good, brand new footage of our villain the Lizard, plus some lines from director Marc Webb, check it out below. Thoughts?

Watch the Dr. Curt Connors video blog for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man, via Oscorp:

Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on a collision course with Dr. Connors, his father's former partner.

Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man features Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben, Sally Field as Aunt May and Denis Leary as George Stacy. 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb is at the helm of this Spider-Man reboot, from a screenplay written by Alvin Sargent (Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 & 3), Steve Kloves (Harry Potter movies) and James Vanderbilt (The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers). Sony/Columbia is bringing The Amazing Spider-Man to theaters in 3D on July 3rd this summer.

There is something bugging me about the casting of the Connors-part...

Ummm anyone could play Connors' part since he is pretty much an average guy with a scientific mind that something bad happened to him. There was never anything about his personality that stood out from most of the villains spiderman had to fight. The only thing that made Connors interesting was the lizard.

It seems like they're trying to make it interesting by incorporating Peter's father into the mystery. We'll see if it works. I'm actually glad they didn't lead with Green Goblin. Green Goblin needs to be as maniacal as Joker and that's a surprise you save for later IMHO.

And he shouldn't look like a Power rangers enemy like in Raimis film.

And they should introduce osbourne at least. But save him for when Gwen Stacy has to die.

I have a feeling that formula that Connors is working on will play a big role in creating the green goblin physically speaking. I don't think we'll see green goblin in a suit but perhaps Osbourne will continue to work on it so he doesn't suffer the side effects that Connors suffered from but when he thinks he has perfected it, it still changes him into a green monster hence green goblin. Judging by the trailer the green goblin is already in the story and possibly played an intricate part to the demise of Peter Parker's parents. I don't think the formula will play a role in changing Osbourne into the green goblin in a psychological sense but I feel Osbourne is already mentally damaged in the story. The green goblin only exists in his mind and he uses people to deal with his dirty laundry for the reason Connors feels guilt when he is around Peter Parker as Rhys Ifans points out in the viral clip.

I don't really see the problms with using a "goblin costume" for Green Goblin for the sake of scaring. Like Scarecrow in Batman Begins. Don't make the costume tech - keep it disturbing/scary instead. 

Ryderup on May 12, 2012


I see what you are saying but it would be an interesting take on the green goblin that he posesses reptilian like physical characteristics and he would be completely bad ass when he loses a limb by spiderman and he just regrows it back a day later. Also, if you look at green goblin artwork done in the early years and even today his skin looks reptilian. I've been hearing the director, Marc Webb,  hints at the next villain in the movie for the sequel and rumors are going around that it's venom because the studio is planning to do a venom spin-off very soon from the spider-man reboot. I think it's definitely plausible considering the reboot is a take on the ultimate spiderman storyline where his father was co-creator of the symbiote suit which was originally designed to protect the host from cancerous cells.

 I agree with ryderup I do not want to see everything done as a genetic mutation. Green goblin needs a sagging creepy mask and that voice that made him so terrifying. His metal suit took a lot of emotion away from the performance. Webb understands that seeing as that is the reason lizard does not have a full snout

This is the reason I want to see The Amazing Spider-Man. (Rhys Ifans)

You know, I think Peter's father might be responsible for his arm missing.

Chevyvara on May 12, 2012


Umm...No. If you look at the 3rd trailer at 1:27 minutes into it there is a picture with Connors and his father together with his arm gone. In the comics there was never a direct connection to Peter's father being responsible for his arm being missing if anything he lost it when he was in the army. In this re-telling of the spiderman story if anyone I assume be responsible would be Norman Osbourne to keep Connors in line. I don't think they'll go that route though I'm sure he lost his arm from serving in the army to make it socially relevant. 

BinaryChaos on May 13, 2012


This guy looks like Rod Stewart, less burned out.

Ticketmaster on May 13, 2012


Connors loses his arm in Vietnam is I remember correctly

Mr.C on May 13, 2012


I guess the lizard gets really angry at Spidey for pulling his leg. Rather sensitive after the arm, after all.
