    What?

    I really like Paul Giamatti and Rhino is one of my favorite villains.....but no. It's quite hard to believe.

    If it's real, then I dread that they're going with Ultimate Rhino, who is just a suit with a little guy inside.

    Wow...well this came out of left field

    But I wouldn't mind it. I'm sure it's probably not a big role considering he would be cast so late. So maybe an opening battle with Spidey. Could be cool.

    Rhino is a fun villain to use, but I'm having difficulties picturing Giamatti as Rhino. Though, funnily enough, these bizarre casting decisions are actually making me more excited to see this film to see how it turns out.

    As soon as I heard Felicity's name I immediately thought of Betty Brant.

    I really like Paul, but I don't know how they're going to pull this character off without making him silly for the general audience.

    I think he'll be some local gangster. Somebody like Hammerhead.

    Felicity Jones I could see as Betty Brant or Liz Allan.

    I guess they could motion capture Rhino like the Hulk

    Giamatti has been gunning for this role for years. It makes sense they'd try and get him for the role.

    Now, this begs the question: what is Rhino's role in the script? Could TAS-M 2 involve a supervillain team-up? One of my favorite aspects of The Spectacular Spider-Man was the constant team-ups, particularly with Sandman and Rhino. Maybe Electro will be taking the place of Sandman in that dynamic.

    I'm thinking it's a opening scene where Spidey takes him down in a matter of seconds

    Y'know considering all the out-of-left-field casting choices so far I wouldn't be surprised if Felicity Jones is Norman Osborn.

    You must follow me on Twitter, huh? :cwink:

    And I'm sure he won't be "the" Rhino. And it'll be played for comedy.

    Felicity Jones will likely be Betty Brant, but I pray that she's Felicia Hardy.

    Giamatti seems like a very talented actor to waste on just an opening scene... I think the role will be more substantial than that.
