First Look: Paul Giamatti As Rhino In 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Director Marc Webb has just tweeted our first look at yet another of The Amazing Spider-Man 2's many villains. We'd already seen Jamie Foxx as Electro, and Dane DeHaan's Harry Osborn looks appropriately bratty but we had yet to catch a glimpse of Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich, The Rhino. Now we have. (Or, we hadn't seen Giamatti, but we had seen a stuntman made up to look like him.)

The photo, featuring a super angry Giamatti behind the wheel of a truck doesn't show any particularly "Rhino"-like characteristics, but he's mean and got a lot of frightening tattoos. That's probably enough.

Here's one of Webb's tweets. (He put up 3). Translated (via Google) it says "Hello America. Meet Aleksei Sytsevich!"

And here's the photo on its own:

Paul Giamatti - Spider-Man 2

That's considerably better and more menacing than I was expecting. What do you think?
