THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Concept Art Delivers A Much Cooler, Comic Accurate Take On The Rhino
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 featured a trio of iconic comic book villains, but they didn't look that much like their counterparts in the source material. The Rhino, however, could have looked way better!
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was, well, not overly spectacular! Electro, the Green Goblin, and The Rhino all disappointed, and not just because they didn't look much like their comic book counterparts. Electro was given bright blue skin and a rubber costume and Harry Osborn's Green Goblin was an ugly cross between the regular and Ultimate versions.
As for The Rhino, the comical Aleksei Sytsevich donned a massive mech suit with only a passing resemblance to an actual rhino. It was a design panned by fans, but some newly revealed concept art features a version quite a bit closer to what we were arguably hoping for back in 2014!
While he's still decked out in a mech suit, his overall appearance is one that makes him look a lot more like The Rhino we all know and love from the comic books.
It's hard to say why Marc Webb decided against heading in this direction, as it's no more unrealistic than what ended up on the big screen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Ultimately, The Rhino was little more than a punchline relegated to a single scene which we had already seen in the trailers.
What are your thoughts on this alternate take?
Here’s some early concept art for the #rhino for amazing Spiderman. Seems like for a while they were talking about having him in a Mech suit. I did this years before he ever showed up in amazing Spiderman 2. #therihno #spiderman #amazingspiderman #amazingspiderman2 #conceptart #peterparker
