Entertainment Weekly chatted with Jerome Chen, visual effects supervisor on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, about the work that his team at Sony Pictures Imageworks did. One section of the article that I found quite interesting, besides the GIFs and videos (below), was what he had to say about the design of Rhino.

“The artists are fanboys and fangirls themselves, and there’s just this thing about mechanical robots that everyone loves, coming from Pacific Rim to Rhino to Transformers. So they put a lot of detail into it — rivets, even down to messy weld points — and if you study it, every piece looks like it’s from a different vehicle. They wanted it to look like Paul Giamatti’s character was given a base version of this mechanical suit put together out of surplus Soviet-era military gear that OsCorp had sold back in the ’80s and he went ahead and customized it himself. So the head looks kind of unfinished, like he drew it on a piece of toilet paper and then had someone weld it together.” - Jerome Chen

Thank to for SevenWebHeads the heads up.

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be directed by Marc Webb from a script written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt. The film will star Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Sally Field as Aunt May, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Jamie Foxx is Electro and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel will swing into theaters May 2, 2014.

They definitely squeezed every ounce of beauty out of the budget. If only they'd spent money on the script
0megaDaGod - 5/8/2014, 2:20 PM
@Mag

No two ways about it

(PS, I didn't handle it)

blackandyellow - 5/8/2014, 2:45 PM
McNyag, do you still believe this movie is better than Cap 2 or have you changed your mind?
Pending - 5/8/2014, 2:45 PM


I was excited to see something like this in the movie but maaaaaaan. I really don't wan't to see Jamie or Paul Giamatti come back.

Listen,as members of The Sinister Six...both Electro & Rhino can be fixed visually.
Give Electro a containment suit with a dark green look resembling his original comic book look.
Make Rhino more like his comic book version as more of a huge man-monster than a Transformer toy.

Green Goblin has to be fully scrapped...he looked soooooooo awful.
Just have him fully turn into a hideous goblin-like guy & wear no mech suit..say the serum he took made him super strong..which it should have,as in the comic books!!

@Blackandyellow

After seeing the final cut? Cap 2 is a superior film. I had seen an earlier rough cut of TASM2 back in March which was just great. The final cut seemed to me like a whole different movie at some points. Stuff was cut out and added in. I mean Gwen's death was different amongst other things. Still like the film 8/10

They used the most retarded of all Rhino designs. WTF?

Its a wonder they got anything right with this movie.
AXE - 5/8/2014, 2:49 PM
wow, the timesquare cgi looked so good O_O
maninfinesuit - 5/8/2014, 2:50 PM
Jonny Lee Miller is a better Holmes than Cumberbatch. There, I said it.
AXE - 5/8/2014, 2:50 PM
@McNyagano, what were the cut scenes and how was Gwen's death different? like what made it a better film?
Berserker187 - 5/8/2014, 2:52 PM
Meh movie
Jollem - 5/8/2014, 2:52 PM
