THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: Marc Webb On Lizard's Lab Coat
Fans have wondered where Lizard's iconic lab coat is, and now director Marc Webb promises that fans won't be disappointed! He also comments on what made the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko creation a good choice of villain and more.
While Marc Webb has decided to go for a slightly different look for The Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man (inspired more by Steve Ditko's work than the animalistic version made famous by the likes of Todd MacFarlane), that hasn't stopped fans from wondering whether the iconic villain will don his equally iconic white lab coat. "That's a good question. Be patient, grasshopper," Webb teased in a recent interview with MTV Splash Page. "[Regarding] the lab coat, be patient...you won't be disappointed."
As for Curt Connors motivation s and what made him the perfect choice of villain, Webb revealed: "For the Lizard, Doctor Connors has a missing arm, which sets him on his path. There's this symmetrical theme in Curt Connors being the literal embodiment of the movie's theme: we all have a missing piece. How we look to fill that void is how we define ourselves. It made sense. After I figured that out, it was a logical choice. Obviously, Curt's morality is looser than Peter's turns out to be, but their motivations are quite similar," he added. "They just evolve and manifest themselves in different ways."
