Some, myself included, don’t consider The Amazing Spider-Man franchise all that necessary, especially when you consider there’s only five years between Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 and Sony‘s reboot. As for the new Peter Parker, Andrew Garfield, he was a welcomed addition to the franchise, but even he won’t be around forever. Just recently Garfield made some comments about being contracted through the third Amazing Spider-Man flick, but for nothing beyond that. (more…)

Spidey fans are abuzz regarding Paul Giamatti‘s upcoming appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Aleksei Sytsevich, aka The Rhino….
It could be the best or worst part of the highly anticipated sequel, depending on who you ask, and Sony seems to be banking on Giamatti’s drawing power: In a recent interview with Collider while supporting the upcoming release of Parkland, the acclaimed actor admitted that he’s signed a multi-picture deal. Rhino will definitely be appearing in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, and possibly 4–if 4 actually happens, that’s yet to be confirmed.
Giamatti has also hinted strongly that he’ll be participating in a Sinister Six movie–again, nothing’s been set in stone.
In any case, it appears Rhino’s involvement in ASM 2 will be relatively light (probably because Jamie Foxx’s Electro will be the principle baddie), setting the stage for a larger role in part 3.
