As much as I enjoyed "The Amazing Spider-Man," I just was not a fan of The Lizard. I'm not sure if it's the idea of a nine-foot reptile-man running all over what should otherwise be a grounded-in-reality New York City, the mustache-twirling vocal villainy of the character, or simply a problem with the design itself. If it's the latter, well, it looks like "Spider-Man" had a chance to win me over on its bad guy once upon a time.
"Spider-Man" concept artist Jerad S. Marantz has posted some samples of his initial designs for Curt Connors' scaly alter-ego, and they're all pretty wonderful. You can already see one example above you. Keep reading for some more!
Big thanks to CBM for pointing this out.
