Rhys Ifans and Andrew Garfield are spotted filming a scene for The Amazing Spider-Man in Brooklyn on Saturday (May 7). The pics are the first clear look at Ifans' character Dr. Curt Conners - aka "The Lizard." The green thing he's wearing around his hand is to make it easier to add a special effect (lizard arm?) in post-production.
"I think that there's something about Peter Parker that's just... He's a legend. That mythology is appealing to me and it has been for a long time. It's just a dream come true. [Sam Raimi] did something fantastic, but I do think the mythology of Spider-Man is wide and vast, and there's more opportunity to explore that cinematically. Sam is not only a great guy but a fantastic director and it's a humbling prospect, but I'm looking forward to it."
