First Look at Rhys Ifans (Minus a Bag on His Head) from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

     May 8, 2011


Last week, we got our first look at Rhys Ifans in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man.  Kind of.  Ifans plays Dr. Curt Conners, a scientist who accidentally becomes The Lizard when he tries to regrow his lost arm.  Moral of the story: if you’ve lost an arm, take comfort in the fact that you’re not a man-reptile.  Anyway, while I imagine that the character will be mostly (if not entirely) CGI, the set photo from last week showed Ifans with a bag over his head presumably to hide some level of transformation.  Today, we now see Ifans in human-form and without the bag, but with a long green glove on one arm.  That’s so the animators can CGI out the actor’s arm, although if he were method, he would just chop it off.  Computer graphics ruin everything.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  The Amazing Spider-Man also stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.  The film opens in 3D on July 3, 2012.
