Another Amazing Spider-Man movie is about to hit the theaters (it’s one of our 30 Most Anticipated Movies of 2014) and a new poster reveals the villains ol’ Spidey is up against this summer that includes a rather disappointing choice. [Image via Collider]
Twitter user Jeser Piedra discovered a massive poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that reveals the roster of bad guys that the cinema’s second favorite web-slinger will fight in the upcoming movie. We’ve known for quite awhile that Electro, played by Jamie Foxx, and Green Goblin, played by Chris Cooper as the elder Osborn and Dane DeHaan as the younger Osborn who both don the Goblin’s mask, would face off against Spider-Man, played again by Andrew Garfield. The third villain choice, however, has us scratching our head so much that we’re starting to strike skull.
As you can see in the poster, Rhino is revealed to be the third bad guy in the movie. He will be played by Paul Giamatti and these days, you can’t get a higher caliber actor than that. However, his costume is based on the “Ultimates” version of Rhino and not the mutant rhino-man hybrid that’s infinitely cooler. This one is just a giant Transformers version of Rhino that we’re bound to see in one of Michael Bay’s future Transformers movies when he runs out of toys to turn into characters for his next big budget, overblown action film.
So basically, Spider-Man isn’t fighting a villain who’s been gifted with the evil mutant powers of a rhinoceros. He’s fighting a villain who’s been gifted with the ultimate Sharper Image gift of rhino-like robot armor.
