By Paul Romano - 5/11/2013
In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker, life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen, high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro, emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.







The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, Felicity Jones and Sally Field. The film is set to hit theaters May 2nd, 2014.

yep someone called it when they said he'll just be a russian gangster called The Rhino
Homunculus97 - 5/11/2013, 7:10 AM
I guess this is before he becomes the Rhino ~
SimyJo - 5/11/2013, 7:12 AM
Cool! - This gives me THE HORN!

Thank [frick] we get a badass who is already BAD before.
xBlaze96x - 5/11/2013, 7:13 AM
Are we sure he is going to become the Rhino? What if Rhino is like a gang name for him or something? I mean I hope he becomes Rhino but this is another possibility.
thewolfx - 5/11/2013, 7:14 AM
Facepalm

Well atleast spiderman looks like spiderman this time
AmazingFantasy - 5/11/2013, 7:16 AM
I doubt a chubby/short Russian would be called " The Rhino"

He's Aleksei, his other comrades get webbed up, he steas the truck with the RHINO SUIT.
Boom. The set photos/vidoes dont lie.

I say that's the route it's doing down.
People are gonna complain at the first look at Aleksei, wait till Rhino hits..

TASM was an alright movie. Not great, but alright. This is shaping up to be far more interesting.

PLEASE DONT LET THE RHINO-SUIT BE A MECHANICAL MONSTROSITY!

Kinda want something like him being in the game, experimented-on and (if it has to be a suit) - fused into it.
Ocelot - 5/11/2013, 7:24 AM
@xBlaze96x I honestly think that will most likely be the case, "The Rhino" being a gang name that he calls himself
JohnLamb - 5/11/2013, 7:25 AM
Nice shot!
bazinga85 - 5/11/2013, 7:25 AM
Great, NOW GIVE US A PIC OF HIM AS THE RHINO!
supermarioworldE - 5/11/2013, 7:27 AM
Wow. I can't lie, he looks just like him.
SimyJo - 5/11/2013, 7:29 AM
@ComicBookGoth:

Wheres Rhino's willy?
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 5/11/2013, 7:33 AM

Looking forward to (hopfully!) seeing him in The Rhino suit.
IronPatriotChowder - 5/11/2013, 7:36 AM
Yes! Rhino is my least favorite villain, so if they just make him some gangster i'll be perfectly happy. BUT Giamatti looks much more menacing than I thought he would, so I'm super pumped for this movie.
MrMartinMarvel - 5/11/2013, 7:37 AM
Wow this is gonna suck. ;)
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/11/2013, 7:43 AM
Rhino suit could be like the Crysis suit but only bigger. Its made in Oscorp and Osborn gives Aleksei the chance to use against Spidey. Thats how it should be.
grampageezer - 5/11/2013, 7:45 AM
So he won't be dressed in Rhino leather crashing through walls, but in a truck crashing through walls?
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/11/2013, 7:46 AM
This brings Last Son of Krypton animation in my mind.

John Corben uses Lexcorp´s Battle suit against Superman.
Vaportrail - 5/11/2013, 7:48 AM
Ohh, I see what they're driving at.


Aging thug who never amounts to anything is offered an upgrade/chance to prove himself.

I'm guessing. Seems about right.
rocky - 5/11/2013, 7:49 AM
Really dug the first so I'm glad to see PG looking the part. I wasn't sold at first but that pic gives me new hope.

This should be pretty great.

SimyJo - 5/11/2013, 7:51 AM
@AlexDeLarge:

Wouldn't mind a crysis-like exoskeleton if it was textured to be like rhino skin and its gotta have the horn on it - BUT NO f**KING SHINY METAL SUIT! .... i hate that.
FireKnightRises - 5/11/2013, 7:56 AM
Let's hope he doesn't end up like Mandarin in IM3, an ordinary thug that called himself "Rhino"
DrDoom - 5/11/2013, 8:00 AM
He'll probably give the best performance in the movie.
jimoakley666 - 5/11/2013, 8:03 AM
Let's hope he looks more like the regular Rhino. The robotic suit looks way too 90's crappy. All it's missing is pouches. Bullet-proof dirty kevlar rhino skin would look much cooler than shiny chrome.
Greengo - 5/11/2013, 8:06 AM
PG is awesome!

Great actor!!
GUNSMITH - 5/11/2013, 8:08 AM
HONESTLY I CAN TOTALLY SEEING THIS WORK REALLY WELL, THE GUYS A GREAT ACTOR..HE'LL TOTALLY PULL IT OFF.
HULK2099 - 5/11/2013, 8:11 AM
He better suit up !!!
SpectacularJoShFest - 5/11/2013, 8:12 AM
I'm hyped for this movie, but we don't need another villain's origin story...and him being a mobster called "the Rhino" is just dumb...I don't know, I was excited about having Giamatti play Rhino, but this is a no-no for me.
InfiniteMonkey - 5/11/2013, 8:14 AM
He looks like someone just stole his donuts.
Isn't he suppose to be The Rhinoceros?
Arrow96 - 5/11/2013, 8:15 AM
Giamatti will do great as Rhino. He has the face and the looks for it.
brazilianbatman - 5/11/2013, 8:16 AM
im worried about this movie/

fox looks so weird as electro
I don't really like this guy playing rhino
mj looks ugly
peter parker looks to fashion
poop23 - 5/11/2013, 8:18 AM
Hoping they go with the suit. But chances are their gonna make him some kind of creature hybrid like the lizard to make everything link together easier
VIRILEMAN - 5/11/2013, 8:31 AM
That looks great! I was worried when they said Giamatti would play the Rhino, but this looks great!
