The Hollywood Reporter broke some casting news on the next Amazing Spider-Man movie. Though the news does feature a great actor joining the cast, all fanboys shudder at the thought of more than one villain. Did not Batman Forever and Batman and Robin not teach Hollywood anything?
From the Hollywood Reporter: “Paul Giamatti is in talks to join The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as the villain known as The Rhino, and Felicity Jones is negotiating for an unspecified role.”
“The duo would bolster an already impressive cast. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are back as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, Jamie Foxx is portraying bad guy Electro, Shailene Woodley is Mary Jane Watson, and Dane DeHaan is Harry Osborne”. Check out the full story here.
Immediately, the role that comes to mind for Jones would have to be the Black Cat. However, with a cast that already includes Gwen Stacey and Mary Jane Watson, why have another love interest for Spider-Man? It is unlikely we will see the Black Cat this soon in the rebooted franchise.
