Any debate whether or not Paul Giamatti would be playing more than a man in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 can be put to bed. Over the Memorial Day weekend, the Oscar-nominated actor, whose basic appearance as Aleksei Sytsevich is already powerful and intimating, was placed in what looks like a mech suit on stilts. The Rhino is facing off with Spider-Man on the mean streets of New York City and, after the jump, you can get a look at the suit as well as one of Spider-Man’s latest allies. Read More »

There was no shortage of things to love about Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man, but perhaps the highlight was the budding romance between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone).

Now there is a good collection of the deleted scenes, included among which is the shot of Irrfan Khan asking Parker “do you have any idea what you really are?” Check out the footage below. Read More »
