Over recent months it's seemed as though the best way of keeping abreast of the latest super-hero movie developments has been by watching the merchandising tie-ins. That trend has continued today, with the release of a new wall poster for The Amazing Spider-Man.
Trends International is now stocking the new poster featuring The Lizard, the scaly alter-ego of Rhy Ifans’ barmy scientist, Curt Connors.
Up until this point, all we’ve seen of The Lizard is a few brief silhouettes in the official trailer, and a headshot on an RC car. Oh and then there was that Pez dispenser, of course…
However, this new poster gives us a pretty clear impression of what The Amazing Spider-Man’s big bad is going to look like. At present, we’d say the jury’s out. On the one hand, he doesn’t look excessively cartoonish, on the other, he does look a little bland.
It’s probably unfair to judge however, before we’ve seen the finished article on the big screen. We won’t have long to wait, either, as The Amazing Spider-Man opens in the UK on 4 July 2012.
What do you think to The Lizard's new look? Tell us, below.
