While I’m sure these pictures aren’t the big Lizard reveal you’ve been hoping for, they do give us some clues as to what the scaly side of Dr. Curt Connors will look like. Unlike previous set photos this time Rhys Ifans doesn’t have a bag over his head like some kidnapping victim but instead is sporting some scaly skin effects.
The gallery after the cut also includes some of our first looks at Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben, Sally Fields as Aunt May (noticeably less dowdy than her previous screen incarnations) and Andrew Garfield interacting with his new Gwen Stacy, Emma Stone.
Think the skin effect looks nifty or pretty lame? It’s subtle, that’s fore sure. But maybe that’s because they’re saving up for their biggest reveal. Dr. Connors’ hand will actually mutate into a living, breathing…Kermit the Frog!
In nerdbastards compendium of Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man news we got two brief updates.
As you all know, Anne Hathaway was cast as Selina Kyle, also known as Catwoman, in Christopher Nolan’s TDKR,. While I have been too busy fantasizing about tongue punching her fart box, other fans were wondering if we might actually get to see Hathaway in the Catwoman costume, or if she would appear as Selina Kyle only. Recently on Oprah ( I kinda want to have sex with the bags under her eyes and maybe her arm fat) Hathaway actually referred to her role in the “Catwoman” sense. She doesn’t say much, but it is the first time anyone associated with the movie has used the name.
How she’ll play into the Nolan’s Batman narrative still remains a mystery. Villain? Love interest? We dunno. With a mighty filled cast –Christian Bale obviously as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Joseph Gordon-Levitt in an Unknown role.- there is fear that Nolan might be biting off more than he can chew. For the final film in his trilogy the story and it’s characters better be goddamn good. Time will tell, but in Nolan we trust.
Now, in what seems to be one of the number one movies to have spy photos constantly leaking from set, comes more photos of Spider-Man in costume, from Marc Webb’s upcoming Amazing Spider-Man. These photos of Andrew Garfield in costume don’t show much. Just Spider-Man being held at gun point as well as web head sportin’ some over costume clothing. Sweat pants and serial killer jacket.
