New Pics of the Lizard and Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Crotch



Let’s start with the good news. A bunch of new pics from The Amazing Spider-Man were just released, including the above shot of the Lizard. He’s wearing a lab coat! It’s amazing how much a wearing a lab coat mitigates my dislike of the Lizard’s overall design. It just gets across his transformation and semi-tragic origin more than having the Goomba from the Super Mario Bros. movie run around naked. 

Meanwhile, remember how there was that big to-do over Brandon Routh and how the costumers had to handle his penis in his Superman costume (so to speak)? How they had to specifically design a crotch piece that would indicate his junk without being too obvious or revealing how large his member apparently was?

Well, it appears that Andrew Garfield did not merit that conversation.
