Director Marc Webb is taking a page from Bryan Singer’s book by tweeting images from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Last month he gave us a glimpse of Jamie Foxx as Electro, now comes our first look at Paul Giamatti as The Rhino.
In the photo he’s not wearing his rhinoceros hide-like suit, which is made complete by its ramming horn. But Giamatti, seen driving a truck, does look angry.
“Say hello to Aleksei Sytsevich,” Webb wrote, referencing to The Rhino’s real name.
The Rhino is just one of the villains Andrew Garfield’s Spidey will square off against in the sequel. The webslinger will also battle Foxx’s Electro, and possibly the Green Goblin (after all Dane Dehaan is playing Harry Osborne).
He’ll also be sporting a new suit (seen below).
Here is the official plot description from Marvel:
In “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), 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.
And if you missed it, here is the photo of a very geeky looking Foxx as Electro.
Is Spidey set to face one too many villains this time around? Let us know what you think of The Rhino and Electro – and possibly Green Goblin – in the comments.
