    I still have no problem with the way Lizard looks. In the video interview with Webb that I posted from Wonder Con, he states something to the affect of the way we're seeing him now, won't be the final screen version. Or at least that is what i took out of the comments he made about rendering and such.

    ^ I wouldn't care if it was the final screen version. I think it looks fine.

    I'm fine with that look, I just really wish he had the lab coat.

    Agreed. I was just sayin' :) The bit of news still remaining that I'm still eager to hear, is who is writing the novelization. I'm hoping it is Peter David again :)

    For sure. I just feel like I'm looking at a scaled down version of Roland Emerich's '98 Godzilla creature.
    The lab coat would add not only a break up in all the green but remind the audience of the humanity inside.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we did see him in Lizard-form with a lab coat on at some point in the movie. It seems to me like it would be an almost guaranteed part of the transformation scene at least.

    The lab coat works fine in the comics but I think it might look silly if he was wearing it for extended periods of time in the movie.

    I don't think so at all. The lizardman is something that has been done many many times over the course of fiction. The labcoat adds a unique visual element to this particular character, and serves as a reminder that this fearsome looking creature is also Curt Conners, scientist, generally good guy, and Peter Parker's friend.

    Wow that clip was more awful than I could have ever possibly imagined.

    I saw a trailer for this this past weekend before "The Hunger Games" and was pretty impressed with how it looks. Color me a bit more intrigued. I like them showing a bit more of Spidey cracking wise while in his costume.

    One question for people following the behind-the-scenes stuff more:

    I know the web-shooters are mechanical ones but the webbing itself is it something Peter Parker has "somehow" created (in spite of logic given the properties of the webbing) or is the webbing produced by his body and he just collects it and puts it in the shooters? (As I recall one of the trailers shots shows some webbing coming out of a spot in the nape of his neck.)

    It's something he invented himself originally, if I remember correctly. Of course, since comics like to change things slightly from time to time there was also a period where he produced the "web" because of the spider bite.
    And I think in the Ultimate Universe, the "web" is something his father created and he improved upon.

    Yeah, I know all of that. My question is what is the source of the webbing in this movie.

    He has an army of spiders living in his room that he commands to spin webbing for him all day long. He then collects it and puts it into cans of silly string.
