There were lots of surprises during Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man panel yesterday at the San Diego Comic Con. Not only did attendees get a sneak peek of the big bad villain (The Lizard), there was a “surprise” appearance by Spider-Man Andrew Garfield.
Take the jump for a description of the Lizard’s big scene.
The big reveal, though, came with a final scene that started with two girls in a bathroom, talking about one of their recent breakups. Behind them, a toilet starts to bubble and then the floor around it begins to crack. An enormous hand emerges from the hole and we see the lizard for the first time in full. Apparently entirely CGI, the character goes back to the original Ditko look, though the character’s body is much more muscular. He also, as is revealed in a shot where he sniffs the terrified girls, has a gigantic tongue.
We expected at least a portion of the character would be getting the CGI treatment, but it will be very interesting to see how CGI Spider-Man and CGI Lizard interact on the screen during the big fights.
