Amazing Spider-Man 2 May Have Paul Giamatti As The Rhino; Felicity Jones As Black Cat?




Back in March of 2011, actor Paul Giamatti put it out there that he would like to play the Rhino in the Amazing Spider-Man movie.

He appeared on Conan O'Brien saying that he felt the character was fantastic and that, "I think I would be the best Rhino possible."

Well, now it looks as if he is getting his wish as THR reports that Giamatti is in talks to play the Rhino in the Amazing Spider-Man 2.

If true, the Rhino would be possibly the third or even the fourth villain in the movie, joining the likes of Electro, Harry Osborn and possibly Morbius The Living Vampire.

picThe Rhino in the comic books, real name being Aleksei Sytsevich, belonged to the Russian Mafia and underwent an experimental procedure bonding the "rhino" suit permanently to his skin. Sytsevich was chosen because of his strong appearance and low IQ. The Rhino's first mission was to kidnap the son of Daily Bugle Publisher J. Jonah Jameson, astronaut John Jameson. The rampaging Rhino turned on his benefactors and was eventually thwarted by the Amazing Spider-Man.

5296 Felicity Jones, a British actress known for the 2008 "Unicorn and The Wasp" Doctor Who episode, is also said to be up for a role, though the character is presently unknown.

Just a guess on our part, but could Felicity Jones be playing the Black Cat?

The "Amazing Spider-Man 2" swings into theaters May 2nd, 2014 directed by Marc Webb starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan.
