And I liked Topher Grace as Eddie Brock/Venom. In fact, he was probably one of the most enjoyable parts of Spider-Man 3... wish there was more of him. Only here, Giamatti is a much better actor who will probably tackle the role of RHINO if he gets it. Why though? The Hulk would just punch him into space and it would be over. The point is that he is very challenging for Spider-Man to fight.
