A few notes on this first:
- Yes, he does kind of look like Voldemort.
- There is speculation that this is Dr. Conners early on in his transformation.
- No, I have no idea why he’s naked.
- Yes, I resisted every urge to make a joke out of this headline.
Thanks to Spidermedia.ru for the first look.
Not going to lie, I was looking forward to the purple pants and lab coat look. Make ’em both a bit tattered and you’ve got a scary villain. This makes me wonder if Peter will have to enroll in wizarding school to defeat him.
But this look isn’t all that different from the original Steve Ditko design which features a more human-shaped skull despite scales, claws and a tail. Plus, technically The Lizard is naked all the time in the comics thanks to the wonderful “Shed” arc by Zeb Wells and Chris Bachalo.
Mostly, this gives me hope for a pretty cool looking Killer Croc in a future Batman movie.
