New promo art for The Amazing Spider-Man

Take a closer look at The Lizard

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.

      It looks awful, as does the film. I have something against any character that strikes that particular pose too

      I tend to judge things to do with The Lizard based on how much he scares me, I blame him wholeheartedly for my lifelong reptile fear, and this doesn't frighten me in the slightest. He just looks like he needs a mani-pedi and some E45 cream.

      the cgi in the trailer is terrible, can see better graphics in a game and as for the lizard, the face is all wrong, its too human like compared to that of the comics or old cartoons, should have a more muzzle look rather than a mouth nose and cheek bone definition and theres something about the top of his head that make it just look like a bald guy with face paint

      I'm just going to pretend it's the quality of the photo that makes him look bad.

      The head does not match the body. Poor.

      No that excited but always thought spider man was seriously over rated compared to other comic book heroes but it does look alright compared with the last two films which were pretty bad :/

      Did anyone else feel that when Rhys said " Come and get it. " in the trailer that it was rather weak ?

      He looks alright. The face is a bit silly, though.
