     May 3, 2012


The new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man will go online later today, but before it does, Sony has released two new images of the film’s baddie, The Lizard (Rhys Ifans).  For non-geeks, here’s a little background on the character: Dr. Curt Connors is a one-armed scientist who tries to use science (nothing good ever came of that!) to regrow his lost limb.  The experiment goes horribly wrong, and Connors transforms into a horrible reptile monster.

Hit the jump to check out the images, click here for some new posters, and be sure to keep checking back for the trailer later today.  The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Denis Leary, Sally Field, and Martin SheenThe Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D on July 3rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man:

Like most teenagers his age, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today.  In his journey to put the pieces of his past together he uncovers a secret his father held…a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man.  This is the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story.  On July 3rd, 2012, the untold story begins.

    I certainly hope people aren’t crying SPOILER, because we finally see a coat on him. Which is quite awesome.

    Awesome pic. It shouldn’t be a spoiler. It’s what I expected (and wanted) to see the first time he was revealed in the last trailer.

    Granted this is the Lizard from the OG Spidey from waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the 60′s…I’m hoping by the end of the film he turns into the reptilian monster of today’s lore.

    I loved em both…but the ferocity of the 90′s to current Lizard is great.

    Wow, I realize they are only still photos captured from the trailer, but they both look fantastic. And the white coat! I’m fairly sure all those uttering “meh” about this or that in regard to this movie will fork over $10-15 for 3D tickets in July.

  • Multi-Man

    A Ditko-esque Gwen Stacy AND Lizard! NICE!!! I sure hope this movie is worth a crap!

  • daveyboy

    Yeah!Looks way more right with the lab coat! The other footage without it,he looks so naked!

  • ti

    Fair play, that lab-coat picture is the dogs bollox. Ciders all round

    I’ll bet 100 bucks he has the coat on for about 2 minutes. Everything we’ve seen before this be it toy, screen shot, or bust shows him without the coat. It’s probably shortly after he changes. This is just to get people bitching about the coat to go see the movie. Tricksters!
