Here is our first glimpse of the pre-CGI Rhino in The Amazing Spider-man 2

May. 28, 2013by: Alex Maidy

All of the set photos we have seen of Paul Giamatti filming THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 have been him dressed as Aleksei Sytsevich. Based on that, it can be assumed that the formula developed by Curt Connors and Richard Parker will be what creates many of the villains in this new Spider-man universe. So, Rhino is going to take the same route as The Lizard and be a fully CGI creation.

These new set photos show Paul Giamatti wearing a giant apparatus that will obviously be used to map his behemoth character once his transformation is complete. While we still don't have any idea what the character will look like, I would be willing to say it is going to follow the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN video game version that is a fully animalized body seen here.

Unlike X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, I think THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is going to manage the tons of new characters well. Here's my theory: the story is going to focus on Electro as a main villain and he will have to turn good to help Peter stop Rhino. The other characters will just be background set up for the third film and beyond.

Check out the two Rhino photos plus a pair of other cool shots from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 below. Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Chris Cooper, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, and B.J. Novak, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 swings into theaters on May 2, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Wow, Giamatti looks like he lost a lot of weight.

That linked image is from the Amazing Spider-Man video game (ironically based on the first movie).

The "Ultimate" Rhino was still a guy in a suit, a bloody massive armored suit.

What the heck is he wearing? I mean, yeah, it seems like it's for the CGI, but ... how?

From what i heard its Giamatti's dream role and it looks like he's all about it, look forward to seeing the final result.

I really hope they don't screw the villains up in this one. I wasn't the biggest fan of the Lizard CGI (plus no snout and lab coat) in the first one.

Can't wait to see what Foxx and Giamatti bring to the film.

Spider-man 3 and Superman Returns had flaws, but despite them I wanted to see sequels. Instead, both got reboots. Based on the Man of Steel trailers, that was the right decision and I'm willing to admit that a reboot was a better idea than a sequel. Amazing Spider-man never gave me the same feeling. I'll still check out the movie b/c it's spider-man, but to be honest it's not that high on my anticipation list.

Over acting much?

I usually like Paulie G but he's effective when his roles have been character driven and understated. This looks like he's channeling the villain he played in that movie with Malcom in the middle. Yikes.

That's not for cgi...

Whatever that thing is he is wearing is supposed to be some sort of weapon. Look at both photos, notice how one has him with out his tats and another does? My guess is the stilts are to make him taller and there WILL be cgi work, but that thing is far from a mo-cap suit... or even looks remotely used for his body.

If Giamatti's not careful...

His face is going to freeze in that expression... and then where will we be?

I'm actually a lot more interested in Days of Future Past. I really like the story from the comic and am very interested in how they intend to bring it to the big screen. On the other hand, the first Amazing Spider Man was quickly forgettable and nothing about this new one has me excited. I'm not interested in the chosen villains nor can I think of a storyline that will be interesting for this film. And if they DO decide to kill Gwen in this film, I will be disappointed as I don't want to see

And if they DO decide to kill Gwen in this film, I will be disappointed as I don't want to see either the Rhino or Electro have that strong of an effect on Spidey. Sorry, but the death of Gwen Stacy has to be at the hands of Green Goblin for me. I realize we have already had Goblin as a villain in the Spidey film universe, but I still would have preferred him here. They could have had the death of Gwen in this film and made Goblin much darker than Defoe's from the first Spidey film. I don't doubt Paul Giamatti and Foxx will be good here, but as Spidey villains....I just don't know.

Why does Spidey's suit look like its from a dollar store when they show the set picks? Am I missing something?

LOL

If I had to judge from pictures, this looks like one of the worst movies ever made.

Ya know after seeing all these bad set pictures of Giamatti I've come to 3 conclusions.

1- This villain may be awful, but awful in the entertaining, "does this guy ever learn?" motive

2- Giamatti looks like he's having a blast playing the role

3- Funny or serious villain aside, Giamatti as Rhino is gonna be entertaining as fuck and may leave us all talking about his performance.

Bet you anything this is going to be some sort of mech/suit thing. No horn coming out of his face, no crazy suit, no rhino skin. I have to say, I'm not hating this idea...

Thats the first thing i thought when i saw that top half. Which i don't dislike but what scares me are the lack of motion capture dots which probably means the suit will look fake as hell.

So what's the backstory with this guy... Howard Stern causes him to lose his job as a radio exec and he goes on a rampage?

weird how there's no tracking dots on his face. Do they not want to motion capture his expression as he acts? Trying to mimic his facial expressions on a monitor again in post is going to be annoying.

I honestly fell more excited about Giamatti playing a villain like Rhino, then Jamie Foxx playing Electro, I have always believed it's the villains that can make or break a comic book film. I wasn't all that impressed with The Lizard in the last one. This one gets my hopes up a little more, but not much.

Just A Thought...

What if that isn't a CGI template and that's actually how he's going to look in the movie?
