Dylan Baker, who appeared in Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3 as Empire State University professor Dr. Curt Connors, has confirmed that he will be appearing in Spider-Man 4. There are no details on how big a role he will have, or if “The Lizard” will appear.
In the Spider-Man mythology Dr. Curt Connors was a gifted surgeon who lost his right arm while serving as a military surgeon. After entering the civilian workplace he focused his research on uncovering the secret of reptilian limb regeneration. After ingesting an experimental serum, Dr. Connors accidentally transforms himself into a reptilian-humanoid monster that wishes to make everybody in the world is transformed into a reptile creature like himself.
This news combined with Sam Raimi commenting that he would like to use The Lizard as a villain will make most fans hopeful that The Lizard will be introduced to the storyline.
