If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I remember hearing something, way back when, about how Sam Raimi had originally planned on having The Lizard be the villain in 2004's 'Spider-Man 2' along with Dr. Octopus. This of course explained why there was a reference to Dr. Connors in 'Spider-man,' and why Dylan Baker makes an appearance as that character in the sequel. Evidently someone was able to convince Raimi that maybe that approach was too narratively cumbersome...something they failed to tell him prior to 'Spider-Man 3.' If you're curious as to what Raimi's Lizard would have looked like, artist Constantine Sekeris has the answer. On his website, among many other astonishing works, is this concept art for Spidey's reptilian adversary. Whether you're looking at the sketch or the rendered drawing, Sekeris' Lizard is pretty terrifying, more so in my view than the one we got in 'The Amazing Spider-Man.' Take a look at the artwork below and let us know what you think. And be sure to check out all the other fantastic art on Sekeris' site.
