Dylan Baker is going to be pissed.
Bleeding Cool reports that apparently the main villain in the upcoming “Spider-Man” reboot will be Dr. Curt Connors, who eventually becomes The Lizard.
In the comics, Connors is a Florida surgeon who lost an arm during a stint in the army. Returning to civilian life as a research technologist, he tried to re-grow his amputated arm using an experiment in reptilian limb regeneration. The procedure worked but eventually turned him into The Lizard.
Baker played the role of Connors, remained as Peter Parker’s physics professor at University, in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” trilogy. The actor never got the chance to see his character turn into The Lizard.
