Rhys Ifans has played some very interesting characters in some very good films over the years and he is due to appear on the big screen later this year as another, The Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man. There have been glimpses of The Lizard and he is seen in the latest The Amazing Spider-Man trailer and now a face on picture of The Lizard has been revealed.
Many of The Amazing Spider-Man fans have aired their disappointment at The Lizard with one fan claiming that it “Looks like those Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies they used to make back in the 90's.”
While another has branded it “Cheap CGI.” While the picture of The Lizard does not look particularly spectacular, his actions are all those of Rhys Ifans, as they used motion capture for the movie.
Ifans explained, “All the physicality you'll see in the Lizard is my own. I had a green suit on, and then this cardboard head, and these big claws. Each and every time you see the Lizard, the technology is so advanced now that when the Lizard's eyes move, they're my eyes. If I frown or show any emotion, they're my emotions. That's how spectacularly advanced technology is.” The Amazing Spider-Man is set to be released on July 3.
