Paul Giamatti to play Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s cast just gets starrier and starrier, with THR reporting that Paul Giamatti is in advanced talks to play secondary villain, Rhino.

As you might have guessed from his name, Rhino is one of the more physical villains in the Spidey universe. A Russian gangster, he underwent a lengthy process of genetic manipulation to give him his super strength, and also wears an armoured suit as a little extra boost.

While Giamatti's not short on snarling charisma, he's hardly got the most intimidating physical presence. Will we see an alternative take on the character? Or will the sequel's plot take inspiration from Flowers For Rhino, a comic-book story that explored his sensitive side by boosting his intelligence.

On top of Giamatti’s introduction, THR also reports that Felicity Jones is in talks to join the cast in an unspecified role, which has naturally set tongues wagging as to who she might be playing.

Fleeting love interests Liz Allan and Betty Brant have been mentioned, but the one fanboys really want to see is Felicia Hardy, otherwise known as the slinky Black Cat.

Directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will open in the UK on 18 April 2014.

Official Press Release of Synopsis and Full Cast :-

Columbia Pictures announced today that filming has begun on The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2 in New York. The film is the first in the history of the franchise that will be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State.

The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.

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.

The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers.

The film’s key behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Dan Mindel, production designer Mark Friedberg, editors Pietro Scalia and Elliot Graham, and costume designer Deborah L. Scott.

The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.
