New Amazing Spider-Man Video feat The Lizard
The recent teaser trailers and clips for Marc Webb’s reboot of the Spider-Man film franchise failed (probably intentionally, in order to add a certain amount of mystique to the character) to provide us with a decent look at the movie’s antagonist, The Lizard, and while this new video still doesn’t show what the monster looks like, it does provide a little bit of backstory behind Dr. Curt Connors, who was the man who eventually turned into the green-skinned Lizard.
The video also includes comments from Marc Webb himself and the actor who’s going to play Dr. Connors, Rhys Ifans. The video emphasizes that The Lizard is not the stereotypical megalomaniac villain who’s evil for the sake of being evil, rather – The Lizard is a victim himself, of a scientific experiment gone wrong much like Peter Parker, but while Parker’s mutation resulted in powers that can be easily hidden, Dr. Connors ended up disfigured and turned into a literal monster.
The Amazing Spider-Man will open in theaters on July 3, 2012.
