Spider-Man Set Pic Reveals Rhys Ifans as Dr Curt Connors
Twitterer J Anthony Hall has scored a bit of a scoop with the first image of Rhys Ifans as Dr Curt Connors, aka the Lizard, on the set of Amazing Spider-Man . Note that Ifans is wearing a “green glove”. As Connors only has one arm (it’s his experiments into trying to grow a replacement that causes him to become the Lizard) this would seem to suggest there’ll be some CG amputation involved, rather than just having him strap his arm behind his back.
