Here's a better look at Rhys Ifans as the Lizard for The Amazing Spider-Man
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Yesterday there was a horrible depiction of the Lizard character from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN that debuted on the internet. I didn’t bother sharing because the likeness of the character was on a PEZ dispenser. So not too accurate.
Luckily today someone got their hands on a full look at the Lizard…and he has no pants. Usually Dr. Curt Connors has on a torn up lab coat accompanied by ripped up purple pants. Kind of like the Hulk minus the lab coat. So what’s the verdict on this clear view? Not bad. He looks a good mesh of lizard-human though I don’t really see Rhys Ifans when I look at the creatures face. To further comment on the actor, while I do enjoy Ifans I would have never thought of him for the part. It’s a non-traditional departure in my opinion. It will be interesting to see what director Marc Webb saw in Ifans when it came to casting this role.
