Paul Giamatti is in talks to play the villain known as The Rhino in the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”. Felicity Jones is also said to be negotiating for an unspecified role.
In the comics, The Rhino was a thug from a Soviet Bloc country who wore a superhuman suit that made him invulnerable while giving him superstrength and superspeed. More recently has become a sympathetic figure who allied himself with Spider-Man.
The pair would join a cast that includes Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone reprising the roles of Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, along with Jamie Foxx as the main villain Electro, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborne.
