The concept art for what could have been the Lizard in Spider-Man 2 if Sam Raimi had not chosen to go with Doctor Octopus, and it looks quite similar to what we had with Marc Webb’s the Amazing Spider-Man.
Not that we’re complaining. Spider-Man 2 was arguably the best out of Raimi’s trilogy, and Alfred Molina as Doc Oc was a very effective sympathetic villain. Though it is cool to imagine what Dr. Curt Connors would have looked and acted like during Tobey Maguire’s reign under the mask.
Webb will begin shooting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 this year, and the Lizard will no longer be part of the movie, as the main antagonist will be Jamie Foxx’s Electro, and possibly Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osbourne. The principal cast of Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field and Martin Sheen will be returning to reprise their roles (we have no idea how Sheen will return, since his character was already killed in the first movie).
The Amazing Spider-Man is slated to open in cinemas on April 18, 2014.
