On Saturday (May 11), Webb tweeted the first photo of Paul Giamatti in character as Aleksei, aka The Rhino, clearly before the character is fitted with a ramming horn and armor that is surgically grafted onto his radiation-enhanced body.
The Rhino joins a stable of villains for Andrew Garfield‘s Peter Parker to contend with in the highly-anticipated sequel. Jamie Foxx plays Electro, a power line worker who, after an accident, is able to harness electricity at will. Dane DeHaan (“Chronicle”) is appearing in the film as Harry Osborne, though it’s not clear whether he’ll be in Green Goblin-mode in the movie.
Emma Stone returns for the sequel, joined by Shailene Woodley, playing Peter Parker’s other love interest Mary Jane Watson. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ is set for release on May 2, 2014.
