‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ to Fight a S.W.A.T. Team of Lizards?

The Amazing Spider-Man rumored to fight an army of Lizards Precious little is known about the actual plot of director Marc Webb's upcoming "continuation" of the Peter Parker mythos titled The Amazing Spider-Man. http://movieweb.com/the-amazing-spider-man-tied-to-sam-raimis-original-trilogy/According to producer Avi Arad, the storyline will happen within the context of Sam Raimi's original Spider-Man trilogy.

Most fans know that Dylan Baker played Dr. Curt Connors in the last two films. But throughout the course of those popular chapters in the Peter Parker saga, we never got to see Dr. Connors turn into his villainous alter ego The Lizard. Now, in The Amazing Spider-Man, Rhys Ifans is reportedly playing Dr. Curt Connors, aka the Lizard. Which, seeing as how Dr. Curt Connors had yet to transform into the Lizard previously, doesn't really open up this story to be a sub-story that we never witnessed in the first three movies. That makes it more of a sequel than anything else. And confusing at that.

Now, an insider has come forward to reveal one of The Amazing Spider-Man's biggest action set pieces. Apparently, Peter Parker won't just be fighting the mutated Dr. Connors. He'll be fighting off an army of mutated S.W.A.T. team members who've also been transformed into lizards.

Here is what has been said about this important action scene in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man.

"Many of the stunt actors in the film have been spending time in heavy make-up for hours on end because of a fight scene in the film where they're turning all the S.W.A.T. team guys into reptilian creatures... which I'd assume is some nefarious work of The Lizard...There's going to be a big battle between Spidey and some Lizard-ish SWAT guys..."

This, of course, is pure rumor. But it sounds like a fun scene, and quite probable from what we've been hearing in terms of the characters.

The Amazing Spider-Man was released July 3rd, 2012.

              still have not seen never let me go and really did not interest me except for Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan. I will probably see it when it comes out on Net flix or "other"

              I did think that Garfield was good in the social network but i would never have thought he would make a good peter parker but it IS happening. The best we can do now is cross our fingers and hope for the best.

              I expect nothing and so i am never disapointed (unless it comes to X Men in which case i am very VERY picky)

                And Trent Reznor's score. Basically a lot of 'other' elements that made it's greatness, really.

                  @masta-chiefed A lot of Fincher at work, there, yes. And Sorkin's screenplay.

                    @dan1 social network was great on many levels. The whole cast was solid for a bunch of relatively not so famous actors. I guess that's the magic of David Fincher though.

                      @dan1 i thought he was really good in the Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus too. that was the first thing i ever saw of him. i get why you would think that for Never Let Me Go. it wasnt perfect but i just thought he did a good job in it and that movie kinda stayed with me after i watched it

                      @masta-chiefed ha i doubt that.

                          @pjwolsker I didn't think Never Let Me Go was all that good. It was dry, boring, and it seemed like we saw the whole movie in trailer. The only difference from the trailer and movie was extra, useless dialogue, and staring sessions. Garfield was restrained for a good chunk of that movie. We see him, but we don't see much out of him save for a few spare moments.

                          In The Social Network, about a little more then halfway through when the backstabbing comes into full swing (pretty much at the point where Eisenberg's Zuckerberg moves out to California and Garfield's Saverin freezes their bank account) is when we got to see what Garfield was made of (or at least his potential). He was much better in that than Never Let Me Go.

                          But @masta-chiefed does make a good point. I myself hyped Garfield and Social Network (still intensely love the movie, but not for the characters, I think they're all sc*mmy), but @masta-chiefed makes a good grounded reality point.

                            @pjwolsker I'll win an oscar before he does.

                              @masta-chiefed yeah but when you get recognized like that for those two films like Andrew did, you know this guy has a lot of potential and he's good. i think its only a matter of time before he gets nominated for an Oscar if he keeps up the great work that he's been doing so far

                                30 year old spider man in high school trying to bang all those teenage girls? So wrong Hollywood.

                                  @pjwolsker Andrew Garfield is a decent actor. The words great, amazing, or super-talented shouldn't even be considered for a person who has only two major film credits at almost 30 years old. Seriously. He wasn't even that great in Social Network.

                                      Im sorry fellas. A bunch of cgi lizards and a glossy costume doesn't do it for me.

                                      @ejk1 You know there's a perception problem if we are being shown, and told, every little detail about this film throughout it's development. Remember how the twilight lames released like half the movie in clips before it came out? I get the same type of mega flop feeling when I read a producer lying to the fans about continuity, and then I'm being told about a cgi lizard fight. I'd rather watch syfy channel.

                                        @masta-chiefed For one, I don't believe anything Arad says. Second, this may get filmed, but it may also be left on the cutting room floor. If it looks horrible, they will probably leave it out. Toying with a few ideas, no matter how weird they sound, is no big deal eighteen months before the final product is delivered to the masses.

                                          It looks assly bad... not bad-ass....

                                          I've changed my mind, (kinda) If this is INDEED the same "universe" as the Raimi movie - I will NOT be seeing it...
