Amazing Spider-Man Concept Art For The Lizard And Scary Spider-Man That We Never Got

It seems that early designs for The Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man were based upon Chris Cooper. It seems fairly likely, then, that he was attached to the role at some point, or at least on the Want! list.

These images, courtesy of designer Aaron Sims, show how Cooper can be effectively morphed into increasingly reptilian designs.

Thanks to Movies for the heads up.

Now, I’m not sure I like this any more than the Lizard in the film and I can’t really say I’m a fan of that one either.

But I did like the Spider-Man costume in the film just fine. I still preferred the look of the Raimi films, which seemed closer to earlier, more graphically simple Ditko panels, but the new suit was far from terrible.

Do I prefer these early designs, by Sims, George Hull, and Eddie Yang?  Sims’ one, at the bottom, is fine. The others are… kind of scary, more suited to some dangerous freak. Somebody who’d say “Criminals are a superstitious cowardly lot.”

Ah, they always give the under-arm web wings a try at the design stage but I bet you $10 we’re at least two reboots away from anybody being nuts enough to actually use it in the main costume.
