‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ – First Look at Paul Giamatti as The Rhino
Much of the plot of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘ has been kept tightly under wraps, but we do know that the film will feature three iconic Spidey villains. We’ve seen photos of Jamie Foxx‘s Electro, we know that Chris Cooper has been cast as Norman “The Green Goblin” Osborn and now, we have our first look at Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich, AKA, The Rhino!
However, we’ll probably have to wait just a little longer to see Giamatti in full villain attire. Like the first official image of Foxx, this is a look at the hulking bad guy prior to his transformation into a major physical threat. If there was any worries that this version of the character would completely deviate from the pages of the comics, Giamatti’s prison tattoos and tracksuit erase them. It looks like the Rhino still begins his criminal career as a Russian thug.
Like so many of the reveals from this film, the image was tweeted out by the film’s director, Marc Webb:
