Sigh.... Okay, Let's Talk About The Lizard!

I'm struggling to get excited about Marc Webb's upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man. Of course I'll go and see it, and it looks pretty cool, but try as I might I just can't get jazzed about sitting through the Spider-Man origin again. Webb no doubt anticipated this, so he has done what anyone would do to get his potential audience excited. He added a giant lizard.

In fact I'm pretty sure that the official title has now been revealed as The Amazing Spider-Man: In Which Spider-Man Pisses Off a Lizard. And believe me, as a life-long Australian I know that lizards are the absolute last thing you want to piss off. Can you imagine being a teenager dealing with the pressures of high school, girls and radioactive spiders and THEN accidentally pissing off a lizard on top of that? I wouldn't give Peter Parker's problems to a monkey on a rock.

If you haven't seen what he looks like yet, Coming Soon have shown a new piece of promo art clearly showing Rhys Ifans' pissed off lizard...

"Hsssss... You pissed me off, Spider-Dickbag!"
 What do you think of this design? I think it needs a pair of comic book style purple pants to mask his disturbing lack of lizard genitalia. Former Spider-Man Tobey Maguire had this to say.
