Paul Giamatti Confirms He’ll Return as Rhino in ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3′
We’ve heard rumblings of the Sinister Six in future ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ movies, a plan that would theoretically bring back villains from the first film and the upcoming ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2.’ Now, we seemingly have some confirmation of that plan as Paul Giamatti has confirmed that he will return as The Rhino in ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3.’
As director Marc Webb previously told us, The Rhino is not the main villain in ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2.’ Despite his appearance early in the film (think of his scenes as a big opening sequence to kick off the movie), the movie is very much devoted to Jamie Foxx as Electro. But, with Rhino, Green Goblin (Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn) and Vulture (Colm Feore as Adrian Toomes) all making minor appearances in the second film, you can bet they’ll all return with a vengeance in the third film.
Giamatti confirmed to Collider that he would return for ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3′ but stopped short of confirming an appearance by The Sinister Six. But, with Rhino, Green Goblin, Vulture, Electro and Lizard, you’re already 5/6 of the way there. The big question at this point is who the final member will be.
In addition to confirming his involvement in ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3,’ Giamatti said he is not yet set for the announced ‘Amazing Spider-Man 4‘ and isn’t quite sure whether he’ll be involved in that film just yet.
It’s very strange to be talking about the fourth installment in a franchise when the second film hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ isn’t set to hit theaters until May 2, 2014. But, if you can’t wait that long for a little Rhino in your life, we can at least offer you this:
