In an article with SFX Magazine, Amazing Spider-Man producer Matt Tolmach explained why The Lizard had to be the villain in this film. There’s even more at the link:
We made a real concerted effort to tell a different story. And this is a villain that serves the story we’re telling about ‘Who am I? Where did I come from?’ There are thematic reasons why Curt Connors (the Lizard’s alter ego) is the right villain for this movie. Sometimes a movie is made or broken by its villain, and a great villain is somebody who is as inextricably tied into the story as the lead. They are often the personification of the thing that the lead is trying to overcome. And that’s what this is.
