7. Top To Bottom Part 2 (1.28)

Without the balancing point of his sinister goodbye to his son, the final cut of The Amazing Spider-Man was obliged to assemble a montage showing different snippets of Connors losing his shit. Some of his voiceover during that montage comes from this particular deleted scene, another example of The Lizard showing his humanity even as he scales up the evil inside.

Starting the scene with a gut-wrenching wail, Connors is shown to be Golluming out (yes, that’s a verb) at the idea of Peter Parker / Spider-Man stopping his grand master plan. “I’m afraid… I’m so afraid,” he whimpers. This is not the evil villain set to squash the bug boy beneath his feet; this is a man having a nervous breakdown.

A few seconds later and Dr. Jekyll has started to get in touch with his Hyde side, gazing at his Freddy Krueger-like right hand – here shown in pre-CGI form – and wondering aloud, “But why should I be afraid? I’m strong than he is. I’m faster than he is. I can climb as high as he can…”

Spitting at the camera and screaming at the walls, Ifans obviously relishes the chance to act The Lizard without the CGI paintjob. “I have teeth, I have claws… and a doctorate from Empire State university,” he snarls.

Then, as all madmen do, he starts talking to his pet mouse. “And Freddy, I’m beautiful, aren’t I? Beautiful…” he says. “What a feeling! What a feeling!” Alas, at this point he doesn’t start singing or, indeed, dancing on the ceiling.

So regarding the shadowy figure at the end scene I wanted to know who it was. After watching the movie it began to drive me crazy. So I began to do some investigation after about an hour on Google I came up with nothing. But as I kept reading I found an interview with the guy who played "the lizard" he mentioned that all tho the shadowy character was not Norman Osborne, he was employed at Oscorp. Now in the amazing Spiderman video game one of the villains was Alistair smythe, who was employed at oscorp. Now I might be reaching here but judging from what the lizard said in the interview could it not be that the shadowy figure could be Alistar Smythes father!????? Who knows aha just thought id share what I found aha More

3 Surprisingly Good
Probably because the less than enthusiastic reviews, I was actually pleasantly surprised by this film. I'd also argue it's better than any of Raimi's efforts by some margin. I'm not a massive Andrew Garfield fan, but he was better in the role than Tobey Maguire and Emma Stone knocks the spots off Kirsten "charisma vacum" Dunst any day of the week. I also liked how he was more Spider like in this film i.e. more wall crawling and web antics such as the web in the sewer to detect the Lizard when he made a move. Was this reboot really needed? No not really, but that doesn't make it a bad film and I'll happily watch the sequel now. More

4 Shadowy Man
I like that the actor play9ngt the Shadowy man is FUN BOY from the Crow (also known as the porn dealer in Seven who gets interviewed at the same time as the freaked out guy with the razor dildo YIKES). More

Watched this again over the weekend and it has grown on me. Not the best spiderman film, that's Spiderman 2, but the best Spiderman performance for sure. Shame some of these were deleted. The fact that Dr Ratha disappears halfway through the film is too big a mistake for a film that is released in a world where everyone is on the internet picking the film to pieces as soon as they've watched it. Also thought something would come of turning the SWAT team into Lizards as well. But nothing More

6 It will take more than deleted scenes to improve this film!
They should have included the Sam Raimi version of Spiderman, because frankly this Garfield and Webb reboot is the worst superhero movie ever! If you have trouble sleeping, buy this DVD, it will put you in a coma! More
