Details of scenes and characters that were cut from 'The Amazing Spider-Man' have been revealed.

According to reports on Vulture the most shocking cut was a reportedly 'sexually unsettling' scene in which Ifans' monstrous incarnation The Lizard corners two teenage girls in a toilet before licking one of them.

Also ditched were several scenes involving the family of Rhys Ifans' character Dr. Curt Connors, despite his wife and son being cast.

Annie Parisse from 'Law & Order' was announced as playing Connors' wife Martha, but neither her nor a young actor who was set to play their son feature in the finished film.

Those who saw the early trailers will also have noticed that much of the first-person web-slinging footage that was shown in them was cast aside too.

It's not known whether or not the missing footage will make it onto the DVD and Blu-Ray releases.

The film has so far reported impressive numbers, breaking box office records for a Tuesday release in the USA, pulling in receipts of $35 million (£22.5 million).

It's also been announced that this first instalment of the re-booted franchise will be the first in a trilogy that will explore how the disappearance of Peter Parker's parents shaped the friendly, neighbourhood web-slinger.
