Rhys Ifans Talks About Curt Conners & Working With Emma Stone In The Amazing Spider-Man

Rhys Ifans will be portraying Doctor Curt Conners, who turns into the notorious reptilian villain The Lizard, in this summers upcoming reboot The Amazing Spider-Man.  In this interview, Rhys Ifans talks about the good side of Curt Conners, as well as working with Emma Stone; Who plays Peter Parker’s scientist lady love Gwen Stacey…. 


Here is a few quotes from I Ifans’ interview with MTV

“The majority of comic book villains are pure evil, but Curt Connors is an exception,” he explained. “Curt Connors is a good man who initially wants to save the world but he gets hungry and greedy and reckless and he pays the price for that.”

“I just love the whole Spider-Man thing because Superman is so kind of godlike, he comes from another planet, Batman is this inaccessible, unapproachable millionaire, and Peter Parker is this schoolboy who’s bullied and I think that’s the kind of enduring appeal to that story,” he said. “We can all relate to his bullying and the kind of flux that puberty induces in a young boy becoming a man.”

“Emma works with me. Emma’s character Gwen Stacey is a student who works at my laboratory,” he said hesitantly. When called out on why he wouldn’t share more details, Ifans joked, “You don’t want me to turn 9-foot-tall and green and covered in scales and lick your face until you die.”
