Spidey will face two admirable foes in the upcoming film. Jamie Foxx will play to electrifying Electro while Paul Giamatti takes on the role of the Russian mobster villain, Rhino. Rhino is a relatively quiet nemesis throughout the comic series, so fans are curious as to how he'll take to the big screen, and now the wait is over. If you don't feel like waiting until the spring flowers peek their heads up from melting snow, Giamatti can provide you with the full scoop on his character. Check out the video of Giamatti's confessional below.
In a recent interview with The Toronto Sun, Giamatti talked about his character and how he differs from the classic Rhino introduced in the comic books.
"In the comic books of old, he had this suit on that made him look like a rhinoceros, and it made him super strong," Giamatti said. "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."
"I have a particular kind of suit, but I don't think I'm supposed to talk about it," he added. "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."
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" will hit theaters May 2, 2014.
