HQ Image Of Andrew Garfield As The Amazing Spider-Man; Lizard Finally Confirmed!
Yeah, we already knew that the Lizard would be taking on Peter Parker, but Entertainment Weekly have now FINALLY confirmed it. Hit the jump for the cover featuring Spider-Man in high quality as well as comments from Garfield and Webb...
We've known for months that the Lizard would be the villain in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man, but many have wondered exactly why we've not had official confirmation from Sony. Well, we have now, as Entertainment Weekly have revealed in the latest issue of the magazine, which will hit newsstands this Friday. There's also some interesting new quotes about the tone of the movie from Andrew Garfield and director Marc Webb, and a high quality version of the cover featuring Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
EW can also exclusively confirm that Rhys Ifans will be playing Doc Conners, who, in an experiment gone wrong, transforms into one of Spider-Man’s most formidable foes ever, the Lizard.
The Amazing Spider-Man promises to be a "more contemporary," "more gritty," and "more character-driven" look at the comic book hero. He’s a hero the 27-year-old Garfield knows well. Growing up, "I related to Peter Parker [Spidey’s alter ego] so much because I felt like someone else inside," he says. "I loved the comic books and the animated TV series and I even dressed up as Spider-Man as a kid."
Adds Webb: "Ultimately what this movie is about is a kid who grows up looking for his father and finds himself. And that’s a Spider-Man story we haven’t seen before."
With an all star cast that includes Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Denis Leary as Captain George Stacy, Rhys Ifans as Curt Connors, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben and Sally Field as Aunt May, The Amazing Spider-Man is set to be released in 3D on July 3, 2012!
