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.
