Two new photos from The Amazing Spider-Man have been released, featuring shots of the Lizard, played by Rhys Ifans. Even though they don't give a full on frontal view, they're still cool, as you get to see the detail put into the design. I'm excited we are finally going to see the Lizard up on the big screen. It's looking like Spider-Man is going to have a rough time with him. I imagine we're going to end up seeing more of this villain in the upcoming new trailer for the film.
The film, which is now in production and is being shot entirely in 3D, will be released on July 3, 2012. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the Marvel Entertainment production for Columbia Pictures. The executive producers are Stan Lee, Kevin Feige, and Michael Grillo.
The film hits theaters on July 3rd, 2012.
