You might be called “crazy” for saying that Marc Webb’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ is your most anticipated blockbuster of the summer season. But two new images from the upcoming trailer confirm why the new Spidey knows the universe better than Raimi, and why ‘Amazing’ might in fact be amazing. Ladies and gentlemen, I present The Lizard in a white lab coat!

The little details are what matter, and by including a shot of Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) wearing his signature white lab coat – if even for a second – say to me, “Fans, we get it. We know what you like, and we’re paying attention.”

I’ve already praised Sony and Webb for leaving Spider-Man’s mask on in the battle sequences we have seen so far. This lab coat on Ifans’ creature is another vote of confidence in what’s shaping up to be a fantastic reboot.

The two images below look to be screenshots from the ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ trailer that’s expected to hit the Web (pun intended) on Friday, May 4. We’ll have that trailer on the site as soon as it’s live, but for now, what do you think of these official shots of The Lizard?
