It's funny how this movie was supposedly going cheap with all the practical effects like swinging and giving garfield way less money than tobey during the first movie.
And yet it's 230-250 million dollar budget

Saying a non human face as a baddie wouldn't be accepted is a bit WTF excuse that does not jive imo.
Maybe that's why lizard never had a snout in the movie
It's alway interesting to read how avi arad act like the devil on raimis shoulder
"It was really about Peter, Mary Jane, Harry and that new character...
...Avi Arad, my partner and the former president of Marvel at the time, said to me, 'Sam, ... you're not paying attention to the fans enough,'" Raimi said. "'You need to think about them. You've made two movies now with your favorite villains, and now you're about to make another one with your favorite villains. The fans love Venom. He is the fan favorite. All Spider-Man readers love Venom, and even though you came from '70s Spider-Man, this is what the kids are thinking about. Please incorporate Venom. Listen to the fans now.' And so that's really where I realized, 'OK, maybe I don't have the whole Spider-Man universe in my head. I need to learn a little bit more about Spider-Man and maybe incorporate this villain to make some of the real die-hard fans of Spider-Man finally happy.'""
