C. Thomas Howell Confirms Lizard For 'Amazing Spider-Man'

Actor C. Thomas Howell (The Hitcher, TV's Criminal Minds) has spilled the beans on who the villain in The Amazing Spider-Man will be -- and, drum roll...The Lizard. Here's Howell's direct quote...

"There is not a whole lot to talk about. Sony wants us to be hush-hush right now. I play a relatively small role. I play a construction worker who's son is caught in the middle of a battle between the Lizard and Spider-Man on the Manhattan bridge. Spider-Man helps me get my son back from this perilous situation. There is some payback there at the end of the movie. Spider-man is kind of hurting. I help him when all o the other people won't. Part of the story is, the nation thinks he might be a bad guy. They don't know what to think. Because of my experience on the bridge with my kid, I know he is a good guy. I pitch in and help out at the end. That is the best way."
