First Look at Paul Giamatti as the Rhino in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’

Aleksei Sytsevich is spotted driving a tow truck on the set of Marc Webb’s Marvel sequel, while Spider-Man greets a fan.

And on day 66 he gave us The Rhino. Director Marc Webb has shared with his Twitter followers the first official look at Paul Giamatti as Russian bad guy Aleksei Sytsevich, aka The Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Here, he is seen driving a tow-truck the size of a semi in the midst of a police chase. We also get a behind-the-scenes photo of Andrew Garfield dressed as Spider-Man conversing with one of his fans. So, what do you think of The Rhino?

    I sense that this incarnation of Rhino will not be good.

    I've asked around my home city and very little people liked it, not loved. Simply I want Jon Favreau to do this series for two or three films. Personally I think he has proven himself for superhero films.

    Seen the first film 3 times now and for some reason I like it a bit more. I watched Raimi's first spidey film the other night and I found it miles better than Amazing.
    I find no one can top what Raimi did for the first two spidey films.

    Everyone sees the tweet where Webb calls it a picture of Sytsevich, right?

    The reboot was trash aside from 2 things 1) Emma Stone 2) Spidey's suit. Didnt stick to source material, awful visuals, and no villain. Everything about this sequel that Marc Webb has done proved me wrong when i said it cant get worse than this.

    First one was awful. This one doesn't look like any improvement.

    @pjwolsker I think its before his transformation into the Rhino.

    i just hope the truck doesnt have a plate that says rhino and its a metaphor for being an unstoppable force since the cops cant stop its momentum. i'll be sad if they make him like a russian transporter haha

    After The Mandarin as the latest villain to get Galactus'd, who knows what to expect.

    paul is a terrific actor and I am hugely excited to see what he brings to the role

    With respect to Paul, I don't care if it's before the accident, the fact that they would cast an out of shape walking blob to play a titan villain like the Rhino is as much of a joke as a 30 year old playing a 17 year old

    Maybe in this scene he has an accident and because he is russian and has no Visa Oscorp takes him on the Rhino experiment.

    @ridgl Yeah, I definitely see where you're coming from with the Gwen Stacy post

    lmao... The villains in this movie look awful.

    @ChiRep-1 He did the same thing with Electro which is fine, I guess. But he did the same damn thing with Gwen Stacy's death. You can't say "Gwen Stacy's costume reveals major spoiler" and show her costume in the thumbnail.

    This is minor but its reflective of EVERYTHING he posts.

    @ridgl Anything that will eventually be shown in a trailer isn't a spoiler bro. Unless you don't want to be spoiled for the trailer, in which case I retract my statement. Still a pretty silly point to call out

    Once again, maybe you could put a picture of Rhino from the comics as the thumbnail so those of us who want to avoid being spoiled don't have to see it.
    C'mon Orange. Its not that f*cking hard.

    @jaredcb92 Our friend down there was just assuming that the all-knowing community that is Movieweb would be able to make the distinction between Aleksei Sytsevich before and after he dons the suit/ is genetically mutated... But I agree, the headline should've called out Aleksei instead

    @Michael-Rockwell we are using our brains... when a link says "look at paul giamatti as the rhino", i'm expecting to see paul giamatti as rhino.
    The link should have said look at him as aleksei sytsevich

    Kind of looks a lot like Paul Giamatti driving to me. How are we supposed to know that this is him as the Rhino as opposed to any other role he has been in??

    To everyone below commenting where the suit/horn is at...use that thing you call a brain. This is obviously before he has the suit -_-
