The Lizard confirmed as the villain for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN by C. Thomas Howell
Today we have confirmation that The Lizard is the main villain of The Amazing Spider-Man thanks to C. Thomas Howell's confrimation. The actor recently appeared on The Retroradio, where he confirmed that the Lizard faces off against Peter Parker with the help of his character's son.
Here is Howell's description of one of the major action scenes:
"There is not a whole lot to talk about. Sony wants us to be hush-hush right now. I play a relatively small role. I play a construction worker who's son is caught in the middle of a battle between the Lizard and Spider-Man on the Manhattan bridge. Spider-Man helps me get my son back from this perilous situation. There is some payback there at the end of the movie. Spider-man is kind of hurting. I help him when all of the other people won't. Part of the story is, the nation thinks he might be a bad guy. They don't know what to think. Because of my experience on the bridge with my kid, I know he is a good guy. I pitch in and help out at the end. That is the best way."
The Amazing Spider-Man arrives in theaters July 3rd, 2012. Marc Webb directs the cast that includes, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Denis Leary, Chris Zylka, Irrfan Khan, C. Thomas Howell.
