A couple of weeks ago we got our first look at Paul Giamatti’s stunt double on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and now we have our first official still of Paul Giamatti himself. Director Marc Webb just Tweeted the photo and confirmed that Giamatti is playing Aleksei Sytsevich, aka The Rhino.
It appears like we’ll be getting a backstory for this character before seeing him transform into the horned beast we know from the comics. Will we even see The Rhino appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, or will they be setting him up for a sequel? Let me know if you think we’ll see The Rhino next summer in the comments below.
Say hello to Aleksei Sytsevich. twitter.com/MarcW/status/3…
