Colm Feore And Paul Giamatti (Rhino) Officially Join AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, Sinister Six Anyone?
It's official! Paul Giamatti, linked for the role of the Rhino (which he had campaigned for) is now confirmed as joining Amazing Spider-Man 2. Along with the official press release via Facebook is news of the addition of actor Colm Feore. The Canadian theater actor played villains in both Thor and Chronicles of Riddick.
The assumption is he's playing yet another villain. Vulture played by Ben Kingsley had been Sam Raimi's original villain choice for Spider-Man 4 before it was scrapped. It's not hard to assume they would take elements from that old script and incorporate into this sequel. Another option is the long rumored Norman Osborn who eventually becomes the Green Goblin. Oscorp plays a giant role in the trilogy and Norman is a strong possibility. The less likely parts could be J. Jonah or a new NYPD character. We might be one step closer to seeing the Sinister Six on screen which had been the rumored original plan for the reboot.
