‘Amazing Spider-Man’: Lizard Concept Art Revealed?

The Amazing Spider Man Lizard Amazing Spider Man: Lizard Concept Art  Revealed?

Just about every Spidey fan out there now knows about the strange outfit Rhys Ifans wore on-set to portray The Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man, along with the actor’s thoughts about the antagonistic character and even what Dr. Curt Connor’s monstrous form in the comic book movie franchise reboot looks like… in Pez dispenser form.

In other words: outside of those who managed to attend the film’s 2011 Comic-Con panel, Spidey fans know just about everything there is to know about Amazing Spider-Man‘s version of The Lizard – other than what he actually looks like.

Everyone will eventually get to see some finished footage of Ifans in his giant reptilian form, possibly even in the impending full-length Amazing Spider-Man trailer. However, in the meantime, you can check out (unconfirmed) conceptual artwork that depicts the character at some stage in his metamorphosis.

Have a look at that rumored Lizard artwork below:

Lizard’s appearance here does gel with the aforementioned Pez product and is (reportedly) fairly similar to what was shown at Comic-Con – though, in the latter’s case, the villain was described as being more massive, which would mean this artwork offers even less of a truly accurate representation of the character’s appearance in Amazing Spider-Man. Either way, he so far very much looks like a true “lizard man,” similar to the reptile-like humanoid Silurians from Doctor Who (among other sci-fi creations).

However, as has been noted before, The Lizard may undergo multiple mutations throughout the course of The Amazing Spider-Man; so, it’s possible that a more crocodile or komodo dragon-like version of the character (re: one with both a pronounced snout and bulkier build) will appear in the film. We’ll just have to wait and see, basically.

Andrew Garfield as 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

The creative minds behind Amazing Spider-Man have long claimed they are attempting to offer a more grounded and contemporary portrayal of the eponymous superhero (and his universe) than that in director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.

Give the Amazing Spider-Man filmmakers credit: not only does their version of The Lizard so far seem much more “realistic” and less cartoony than villains like The Green Goblin or Sandman did in Raimi’s movies, characters such as Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) also look, dress, and appear to act more like modern-day teens (at least, in the preliminary Amazing Spider-Man footage and set photos).

That might not be a good thing in certain fans’ eyes, but as far as those who have been waiting to see an overall more serious Spider-Man movie are concerned, it’s actually an encouraging sign…


Look for The Amazing Spider-Man to hit 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters in the U.S. on July 3rd, 2012.

  1. Looks awesome, I really hope The Lizard turns out to be a great villain.

  2. ‘may undergo multiple mutations throughout the course of The Amazing Spider-Man; so, it’s possible that a more crocodile or komodo dragon-like version will appear in the film’

    Why dont some people take nice deep breaths, calm down and read the article.

    • no komodo dragon man
      i created that character

  3. My favorite version of Lizard was Todd McFarlan’s version in Spiderman 1-5 Torment. But I admit, to make that version it would have to be mostly CG. “grounded in reality” means a tangible costume with mechanics and real stunts.

    Maybe AMAZING SPIDER-MAN might slip under the radar and be decent, like x-men:FC.

    What if?

    But that PEZ was truly awful.

    • they have already done most of the “lights camera action” step in making the movie

      so the next step post production where they add all CG so i wouldn’t be supprized if ur idea comes true

      even if i havent seen todd “spawn” mcfarlan’s versian so i can’t really say

  4. Honestly, looks come second to the performance. While I’m not crazy about the look here (that’s not to say I don’t like it), if Ifans can pull off a truly awesome performance as the lizard, then looks shouldn’t matter. Besides, it’s only concept art. But I do like the idea of keeping it grounded. The last Spiderman films kind of got away from that after Ock

  5. I see that picture and say that’s not the Lizard, and I daresay that many Spider-Man readers would say the same thing. So I hope that’s just concept art that didn’t make it past the cut.

    • ^ Agree
      I REALLY hope the lizard won’t look like the above concept art.

      I mean come one! It’s a ninja turtle crossed with Voldemort! — It’s just wrong people! :(

      • I think it’s a Goomba costume leftover from The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

  6. Hmmm, still looks like Killer Croc as hr brought to life from Batman:TAS. Which by this picture imo, can be pulled off in a Non-Nolan Batman franchise.

  7. im upset that he doesn’t look as scary as i saw him in the leaked footage

    ido think the design would kindof fit nicely with the movie the way its heading

    i mean didn’t he change back to dr. conners ? it would be kindof corny to have him chang back and forth as a

    dinosaur like monster as i saw him in the leaked footage.

  8. this game has good grahfics (the game) but the lazers are corny

  9. looks good so far hope he does go from transformation to transformation and we see this version, and then a big and bulkier version with a snout. also hope to see maybe a doctor octavious cameo, and osborn. and maybe have them be the villains in the sequel but more realistic then ramies versions. also venom in the sequels but taken seriously would be pretty cool and would make a great story if done wright. i could also see them useing The Scorpion in these versions. i for one love the lizard,doc ock,venom,and scorpion.
