Paul Giamatti in Talks to Play The Rhino in 'Spider-Man 2


 Paul Giamatti in Talks to Play The Rhino in 'Spider-Man 2
topic by Ham Rove - 01-28-2013, 07:33 PM - Boxden > The TV and Movie Spot



Paul Giamatti is in talks to join The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as the villain known as The Rhino, and Felicity Jones is negotiating for an unspecified role. The duo would bolster an already impressive cast. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are back as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, Jamie Foxx is portraying bad guy Electro, Shailene Woodley is Mary Jane Watson, and Dane DeHaan is Harry Osborne.

The Rhino first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #41 in 1966 as a thug from a Soviet Bloc country who wore a superhuman suit that made him invulnerable while giving him superstrength and superspeed. It also had a deadly horn on top.
In more recent comics, he became a sympathetic figure who found himself allying with Spider-Man. The character Jones would play has not been revealed.
The role is a dream part for Giamatti, who in the past has said The Rhino was one of his favorite characters when he was a boy.

“I thought Rhino was the greatest thing when I was a little kid,” he told ShowbizSpy in March 2011. “It was a guy who was basically in this rhinoceros outfit, and I always thought, ‘Why don’t they have The Rhino in one of their movies.’ But maybe The Rhino wasn’t that big of a deal for anybody but me. … If they ever go with The Rhino, I would be ready and waiting.”
Around the same time, he also talked about the character on Conan: “The Rhino was fantastic," he said. "He was, like, a Russian guy. He was real fast, and he hit stuff real hard.
"
The sequel, being directed by Marc Webb, is eyeing a February production start.
Giamatti most recently appeared in Rock of Ages and is shooting the JFK drama Parkland with Zac Efron and Jacki Weaver. He is repped by UTA, Kipperman Management and Sloane Offer.
British actress Jones might be best known for starring in the 2011 Sundance darling Like Crazy and also appeared in Hysteria, the period romantic comedy about the invention of the vibrator. She is repped by WME and Jodi Peikoff Law.

that's what it looks like. because lets face it electro and rhino are not the right characters to be the "main" villain in a movie. the rhino is a wack as !! villain. !! is going on here?

but if they do the sinister six then it will make sense. that would actually be dope. i would love to see spidey f!ght against all six of em. that !! would be full of action. have you like watching that in 3D.

I could've sworn I heard this rumor before, but now it's looking like a reality.

I can actually see this even though he's not physical imposing (See Topher Grace in Spiderman 3).

Great actor and it would be interesting how they play it out.

Ah that is correct my good friend! This new rebooted series is following in the Ultimate Marvel timeline so things are a tad bit different from the usual characters we remember.

Cool

Will most likely be the Robot suit version, but still ....


Mysterio, Kraven, Vulture .. all much better candidates with better built-in character development.


With Electro & Rhino, you just know they'll be making up ish that has nothing to do with their comic counterparts as they go along.
