THE LIZARD Is Heading To Rikers In The Latest AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Viral

Sony have name dropped numerous Spider-Man villains through their Daily Bugle Viral As campaign. This week it's not a new name popping up bit instead, the Lizard, Dr. Curt Connors. Hit the jump to find out why!


Sony are going full throttle on the viral advertising front. Using their Daily Bugle page as a front. The latest Tumblr post has hinted at yet a pretty significant prison in Spidey lore, this time the character in question is Dr. Curt Connors.



Here's what the Tumblr page had to say:

The trial of Dr. Curt Connors came to an end as the former geneticist for Oscorp Industries was found guilty on all twenty counts for which he was indicted, including the murder of NYPD Captain George Stacy.
Connors and his attorney, Anne Weying, were unable to convince the jury that he was not responsible for his deadly actions while transformed. His defense that he only injected himself with the serum that changed him into the Lizard to prevent Oscorp Industries from experimenting on innocent civilians did not sway the jury.
Next stop: Rikers. But even that is controversial. Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane has said their facility is better served for housing and studying a prisoner such as Connors, but the judge has yet to rule on where Curt Connors will spend what is likely to be the rest of his life.


For anyone who doesn't know, Rikers Island is a real prison on an island in Manhattan. It has played a part in both the Spider-Man comics and animated series, but this is the first mention of it in a cinematic Spidey outing!
