4 of 5 New Details About The Rhino
We know that Hangover 2 scene-stealer extraordinare Paul Giamatti is in talks to play Russian rammer Aleksei Sytsevich, aka Rhino. Latino Review posted an interesting theory about Rhino being connected to failed Oscorp experiments, in line with the Amazing Spider-Man game. Giamattie revealed more details in an interview with The Toronto Sun.
"In the comic books of old, he had this suit on that made him look like a rhinoceros, and it made him super strong," he said during the interview. "If there was a bank vault he would just run right through it. Butt through it with his head. And he was not very smart."
Giamatti also teases that his suit in the film will be updated. "And I have a particular kind of suit, but I don't think I'm supposed to talk about it. He's a Russian mobster. Russians are always good villains. I have an ability to just destroy things. My accent is pretty hammy. I loved doing it. it seemed to me like an opportunity to be as over-the-top hammy as possible. It was really fun."
He went on to tease that he plays "One of several bad guys in the movie." The official announcements for the film only confirmed Rhino and Electro, but Giamatti talks as if there are more. Go to the next page for the final details we have so far.
