In the past, visual effects guru, Steven Johnson and his Xfx studio, made a pitch to 20th Century Fox to be the special effects team for a Fantastic Four film.

Concept Art For Sam Raimi’s ‘Spider-Man 2′ Lizard Released

  • LRM Online
Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man was far from perfect, but one thing that many critics seemed to dislike was the design of The Lizard, played by Rhys Ifans.

Now, thanks to ComicBookMovie, we have a chance to see what Sam Raimi’s reptile might have looked like. The images were designed by Constantine Sekeris, who produced the concept art for Spider-Man 2 way back when Raimi was planning to have Spidey go up against Dylan Baker’s Dr. Curt Connors, Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus and James Franco’s Harry Osborn.

Check them out below, and let us know which you think are better.

Original ‘The Lizard’ Concept Art For Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2

It could have all been so different if Sam Raimi had got his way, and gone with this The Lizard design. Although not far from Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-man Lizard, it still looks a little better than the final design we saw with the slightly disappointing Rhys Ifan’s Dr. Curt Connors. I probably didn’t hate it much as some, but the overall problem was the lack of believability, especially when we consider how good a performance Andrew Garfield gave as a new Spidey and how often they talked about getting The Lizard right for this outing.

Anyway, it’s all done now but we can share with you the original work of Constantine Sekeris. You might also like to check his incredible work on numerous titles including The Incredible Hulk, Hellboy II and even currently on Star Trek Into Darkness by clicking along here to check out his portfolio.

Cool Concept Art Reveals Which Villain Got Axed from 'Spider-Man 2'

We love concept art here at It often gives us an idea about what a filmmaker is envisioning for a movie before he actually starts filming -- even if the actual characters and images look radically different in the finished product – and occasionally teases us with things that might have been. The latter is the case with today’s reveal of Constantine Sekeris’ design for the Lizard. The lithe monster (pictured below) is one of Spider-Man’s major enemies – and was his foe in Marc Webb’s 2012 reboot of the franchise. The catch here is that Sekeris’ art wasn’t for The Amazing Spider-Man – it was actually commissioned for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. Early on in the development of that sequel, there were plans to have...

Concept art for Sam Raimi's version of The Lizard

Last year's The Amazing Spider-Man had certainly had its fair share of critics, but if there was one aspect of the Andrew Garfield-headlined reboot that came under particular fire, it was director Marc Webb's choice of design for Spidey's nemesis, The Lizard (Rhys Ifans).

Well, thanks to concept artist Constantine Sekeris (via ComicBookMovie), we now have an insight into the direction that Sam Raimi would have gone with the character, with Sekeris releasing two images of The Lizard as he could have appeared alongside Tobey Maguire's wall-crawler.

The images in question were produced for Spider-Man 2, back when Raimi was planning to have Spider-Man go up against Dylan Baker's Dr. Curt Connors, Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus and James Franco's Harry Osborn. Fortunately, he was convinced otherwise...

Kind of creepy concept art for the Lizard that could have been in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2

  • JoBlo
I need you to take yourself back to 2004 when Sam Raimi was still making Spider-man movies. Do you recall when it was rumored that the director wanted to use the Lizard as one of the enemies in his sequel? If you were ever curious as to what Raimi's take on the villain would be, some concept art has surfaced via after doing some searching on Constantine Sekeris' website. My initial thought when looking at the concept pieces was "creepy". Now I've moved on to...

Concept art for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 Lizard revealed
Concept art for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 has been posted online, revealing how The Lizard might have looked in the director’s swinging sequel – and there’s a distinct feeling of déjà vu all over again. Though Raimi eventually dumped The Lizard in favour of Doc Oc (Alfred Molina), the concept art proves he was keen on Dr Curt Connors for a while, at least. Created by artist Constantine Sekeris, the artwork shows the troubled villain in full reptilian transformation. Check the images out...

Concept Art of The Lizard from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2

"The Amazing Spider-Man" was released last year and featured The Lizard as the main villain. But according to artist Constantine Sekeris (The Incredible Hulk, Fantastic Four), director Sam Raimi was planning to also planning to use The Lizard in "Spider-Man 2." Dylan Baker was hired to play Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard, and Spider-Man was set to do battle with Doctor Octopus, The Lizard and Harry Osborn. Raimi eventually decided to narrow down the villains to just Doctor Octopus, but not before The Lizard concept art was created. Sekeris has now unveiled two pieces of art, giving us an idea of what The Lizard would have looked like in "Spider-Man 2." Check everything out below. Concept Art: (click to enlarge)

Concept Art Featuring The Lizard For Spider-man 2 & Alternate Looks For The Silver Surfer

Some of you may be shocked to learn that director Sam Raimi was initially planning to have Dr. Curt Connors (Dylan Baker) turn into The Lizard for Spider-Man 2. He, along with Dock Ock, Black and Harry (James Franco) as the new Green Goblin, were all to be featured in the sequel, but screenwriter Michael Chabon suggested narrowing the field down to just Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina). So, as I was scouring through Constantine Sekeris' website today I came across concept art of a reptilian figure. I asked the artist if it was for The Amazing Spider-Man. He then emailed me back explaining that it was actually created a long time ago for Spider-Man 2 when the choice of villain(s) was still up in the air. Also below, you can find werewolf designs for Joss Whedon's Cabin In The Woods, Freddy Krueger make-up designs for 2010's A Nightmare on Elm Street,

The Sdcc 2012 Fright Schedule And Beyond – Saturday

Well, Saturday’s schedule for this year’s San Diego Comic Con is now live. So far, we’ve been reporting horror specific events and panels scheduled for the convention. Saturday’s schedule is interesting, though. While they have enough fright themed panels slated for the day, we noticed that Saturday would be better presented as a mixed bag. With everything from Django Unchained and True Blood, to the much anticipated Silent Hill movie sequel and a nerdsplosive panel featuring Roger Corman And William Shatner, Saturday looks like it’ll hold up it’s end of the bargain as being an all out blast!

Seriously, there’s so much to highlight! I’m just going to shut up and command you to check out the list we compiled below.

  • Dread Central
Another day, another schedule for the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. Next up is Day 3 - Saturday, July 14th - which is just about as chock-full of events for the horror crowd as Friday the 13th!

As always, our focus is the horror panels, but included are a few others that we think will be of interest as well. Remember that times and participants are subject to change so keep your eyes on the official Sdcc site for updates. And hopefully they'll provide a fix soon for the Sdcc smartphone app - in years past it's been extremely helpful.

10:00-11:00 Comic-Con How-To: Anatomy of a Fight Scene, Part One— Stories are about conflict, and there is no purer form of conflict than a good ol' fisticuffs-style brawl-or sword fight, laser battle, western shootout, or even two chicks pulling each other's hair. How do you put that much action down on

Reviving Freddy: Interview with Andrew Clement

By Joe Nazzaro

At first glance, it could be considered a thankless assignment: creating the elaborate prosthetic makeup for Jackie Earle Haley, who was playing Freddy Krueger in the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. After all, the character had already been played in nearly a dozen films, making him one of the most recognizable faces in horror history.

But that wasn’t about to stop makeup effects wizard Andrew Clement from Creative Character Engineering, who was able to create a look for Haley’s Freddy that was new and distinct while still paying homage to elements of the original. Clement recently took time to discuss his work on the film, which includes a couple of memorable moments that unfortunately didn’t make the final cut…

Jn: How did you originally get involved in the Nightmare on Elm Street remake?

Andrew Clement: I had worked with one of the producers on Repo Men.
