Dr. Curt ConnersHere are some strange video diary entries from The Amazing Spider-Man’s Dr. Curt Conners (Rhys Ifans). In them Dr. Conners seems to be suffering from some sort of ailment and he keeps getting very comfortable when discussing human trials. It is almost as if he has already begun human trials, perhaps on himself.

Dr. Curt Conners is depicted as one of Oscorps leading scientific minds, he attempts to engineer a revolutionary regeneration serum to help re-grow limbs and human tissue. Something goes wrong and he is transformed into the monster known as the Lizard. In a September, 2011 interview, Ifans claimed that his character spends the majority of the film as a human. While filming for the 9-foot tall Lizard, Ifans was required to wear a CGI suit. Initially, a large stunt-double was used as a stand-in for the role, but Ifans insisted on portraying the transformed character, to which Webb agreed.


Commenting on the technology used to bring his character to life, Ifans continued “I had a green suit on, and then this cardboard head, and these big claws… Each and every time you see the Lizard, the technology is so advanced now that when the Lizard’s eyes move, they’re my eyes. If I frown or show any emotion, they’re my emotions. That’s how spectacularly advanced technology is.”Ifans also said that he voiced the Lizard as well explaining, “I’m sure the voice will be toyed with in the eventual edits, but when I was shooting the CGI moments, when I wasn’t actually human, when I was Lizard, I looked like a crash-test dummy in a green leotard thing. There were many moments when I had to speak to Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as the Lizard.”
