|The Amazing Spider-Man concept art by Josh Nizzi|
It's common for scenes in a movie script to get illustrated by concept artists and then dropped before filming. One example is the battle between The Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and Spider-Man (Andrew garfield) in The Amazing Spider-Man was supposed to include and attack on a double-decker tour bus. Considering the number of New York reshoots they did, the scene might even have been filmed, but cut from the movie. Jay Jayson (Nailbiter111) from Comic Book Movie found concept art by Josh Nizzi that shows the epic scene.
Josh Nizzi is a professional concept illustrator who's worked on blockbuster movies like The Wolverine (2013), Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) and Battleship (2012)

Official The Amazing Spider-Man Synopsis
One of the world's most popular characters is back on the big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy is revealed in "The Amazing Spider-Man." Focusing on an untold story that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story, the new film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, with Martin Sheen and Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the film in association with Marvel Entertainment for Columbia Pictures, which will open in theaters everywhere in 3D on July 3, 2012. "The Amazing Spider-Man" is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
