According to The Hollywood Reporter, prolific capital-A Actor Paul Giamatti is in the final stages of talks to play Marvel comics bad guy the Rhino in Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The original Rhino, Aleksei Sytsevich, is super-strong and super-fast, but famously stupid, however, given the changes being made to Electro’s character we can perhaps expect a similar treatment here.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due 2 May 2014, while The Amazing Spider-Man is out now. Order it now on DVD for £10 and Blu-ray for £14.99 from Amazon.co.uk. Thwip thwip.
