First Hilariously Useless Look at the Lizard in the Spider-Man Reboot



?Behold, Rhys Ifans as The Lizard in the new Spider-Man movie! Maybe! Possibly! Can’t be sure! Because he’s wearing a pillowcase with two eyes cut out of it! Admittedly, this dude appears to have some green, vaguely scaly make-up around his eyes, so it probably is the Lizard, although whether that’s Ifans or a stuntman is impossible to tell, and whether the Lizard is in his full costume or in mid-transformation is likewise unknowable from this picture. But no matter what, I just wrote a story about a guy who has a tiny bit of green around his eyes, and you just read it.

God I love nerd journalism. (Via Worst Previews)
