First Look: Paul Giamatti as The Rhino from 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'
Well, maybe not the Rhino yet, but at least in character as the guy who becomes The Rhino. One of director Marc Webb's latest set photo tweets (@marcw) gives us a first look at actor Paul Giamatti playing Aleksei Sytsevich in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The shot shows Giamatti screaming while driving some truck, with some funky tattoos on his arms and head. The tweet's original message was written in Russian, but Webb has reposted it in English: "Say hello to Aleksei Sytsevich." Yep, that's definitely him, he becomes The Rhino. Two big comic book villains in the next Spidey already? Things are heating up for the webhead.
Here's the first look at Giamatti via @marcw: "Привет Америка. Познакомьтесь с Алексеем Сицевичем!"
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb and written by Jeff Pinker, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. 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 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. Sony will release Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theaters next summer on May 2nd, 2014. Look good?
