It was announced back in January that actor Paul Giamatti would be playing the role of Aleksei Sytsevich aka "The Rhino" in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2Since then, photos of Giamatti on the set and in his Pre-CG suit, have surfaced online to give us an idea of what the character could potentially look like on the big screen, and it's quite different from how the character looked in the original comics.

"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 in an interview with The Toronto Sun. "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 goes on to tease that his suit in the film will be slightly 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." Though the official announcements for the film have confirmed Rhino and Electro as antagonists, Giamatti talks as if there are more. Will we see The Green Goblin, or perhaps The Gentleman, on the big screen? Sound off with your thoughts below!

Swinging into theaters on May 2, 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak and Sarah Gadon.
