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.

    Not terribly interested. The trailer looked very Twilighty-emo-spidey. I’m still disappointed in how they’ve rushed this movie to keep rights, and more disappointed that I don’t get to see what MArvel Studios and Disney could do instead of SONY.

      Just think of it this way, I doubt Spider-man will ever truly go out of favor with the general population and despite wanting Marvel/Disney to get it back, any extra time that it takes just gives Marvel more time to develop better technology and effects to make an even better movie. Hopefully. Although it would have been cool to have a Spider-man cameo in the Avengers movie, but maybe it’ll still happen some day. Although, actually wouldn’t it make some sense to have a Howard the Duck cameo in the Avengers movie since some of it is filming in Cleveland?

    I like the improvements done to the costume anyway. Much better!
