“Spider-Man” villain photographed on set

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Set photos have been pouring in from Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.” Heck, we even saw YouTube videos of the crime-fighting web spinner swinging from a New York City bridge. Will there be any surprises left by the time this anticipated blockbuster rolls into theaters next summer?

Well, up until this point, the film’s official villain hadn’t been spotted. Rhys Ifans plays Dr. Curt Connors in the film … and as we all know from reading Spidey’s comic books, Connors goes on to become the savage Lizard.

This morning, set photos shot by J. Anthony Hall and posted to his Twitter feed reveal Ifans as Connors talking to Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. We’ve got it below.

How do we know that’s Connors? Look at the green sleeve he’s wearing on his arm. In the comics, Connors has lost a limb, and its his experiments geared toward regenerating his missing arm that eventually turn him into The Lizard.

ComingSoon also collected a handful of on-set shots capturing Garfield, Emma Stone (as Gwen Stacy) and Martin Sheen as Parker’s Uncle Ben.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” reaches theaters on July 3, 2012 … you know, if there’s anything left to see!

    If two-bit wannabe legit websites like yours and ComingSoon and so many others wouldn’t post unofficial photos that leak during production under the pretext of “news” then maybe films would have a fighting chance. If you are so concerned about anything being left for fans once the movie is released, why are you endorsing the malpractice of posting these leaked photos? Your concern for the film’s wellbeing is a load of crap.

    If you mean what you say, you’d pull the shots down and cease posting photos that leak from film sets. I realize everyone else does it, but they too are wrong. It doesn’t mean you have to be too.
