Several weeks ago, Sony Pictures invited us to attend the press junket The Amazing Spider-Man.  The reboot takes a grittier, more realistic approach to Peter Parker’s journey to becoming your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, and sees the wall-crawler struggling to come to grips with the mysterious of disappearance of his parents.  For more on the film, click here for all of our previous coverage.

During my on-camera interview with Rhys Ifans, who plays Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard, we talked about why the Lizard stands out from other supervillains, if he feels that the Lizard is a monster from within or forced upon Curt Connors, and how the finished film compared to what he envisioned when he first read the script.  Hit the jump to check out the interview, and click on the corresponding links for my interviews with co-stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. The Amazing Spider-Man opens in 3D on July 3rd.
