The director of Amazing Spider-Man 2, Marc Webb, has officially released the first image of Paul Giamatti as The Rhino. There is an obvious change in The Rhino’s appearance (see header for original look). So Giamatti is playing Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich aka The Rhino. Will he done the suit? Is this a more realistic portrayal? Sound off below Maniacs!

The Plot: In the 2014 sequel, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can't come quickly enough. Peter hasn't forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen's father to protect her by staying away – but that's a promise he just can't keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 features Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Colm Feore, Sally Field and Chris Cooper.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives May 2nd, 2014.

 I figure this will be as craptacular as the first one.

I loved Paul Giamatti in Cinderella Man, Sideways and Lady in the Water. Casting him as Rhino is left field. The same thing was done for Michael Keaton, Heath Ledger and Robert Downey, Jr.

I agree the conventional wisdom is to at least cast somebody who can play big and imposing. That's the character. But I'm interested in seeing how they'll do it with Giamatti.

I want Maguire and Raimi to be rehired. If it ain't broke...

Giamatti is an awesome talent! Too bad it's going to be wasted in this film. I'd much rather see him have a role in the Marvel studio's universe. Hell, I'd even be happy with him being in Fox's X-Men/FF universe for that matter.

It looks like he's got a scar on his forehead, suggesting some kind of lobotomy or brain surgery.  In the video game, I think, he's the victim of experiments mixing human and animal DNA, so maybe that's the angle here.  It could be that he represents a heretofore unknown route of experimentation being taken by OsCorp, this time on prisoners.

I agree. Raimi's SM was MEH compared to ASM. The first one was awesome and hope this one is as awesome too.

@ Rizing, but it was broken

ASM was pretty damn good despite some choppy editing. I think with that out of the way this one should be much better.


PG looks better than I envisioned. Hope the they do the Rhino costume justice

 none of you know how this is gonna tun out. And I bet this is going to be better than that fucking joke IM3 and that retard drug addict alcoholic mandarin..

Might make sense if he's got little guy syndrome. He wants to be bigger so he gets the suit to disasterous effects.
