Re: The Amazing Spider-Man Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)
One of the biggest issues I had with the film was not including Curt Conners's family. I think the lack of a wife and son made him less of a tragic figure and also muddled his last second conversion back to the good side.
I agree with this completely. It's this aspect of The Lizard that makes really like the character and it's disappointing that it wasn't part of the film. What's really odd is that there were early reports that both characters had been cast (Law & Order
alum Annie Parisse was reported to play the wife) but there hasn't been any mention of them since then.
