THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Concept Art Shows A Much Different Rhino
The latest Spider-Man films, both directed by Marc Webb, have been among the most polarizing comic book adaptations in recent years. Some enjoy the more grounded and dark tone they offer, while others enjoy the much different take that Sam Raimi gave us over a decade ago. The latest film, which opened this weekend, opened to smaller box office numbers than expected, despite raking in over $90 million domestically. The film has a couple weeks to keep bringing the money in before another movie giant moves in to likely take over the top spot.
The film served several purposes in Sony’s over all plans, one of which is the introduction to the famed Sinister Six, a group of villains that band together, hell-bent on bringing Spider-Man to his knees. One of the first members of that group is Rhino, played by the always entertaining Paul Giamatti. In the closing scenes of the film, we see the actor don a rather large mech-suit of sorts and take to the New York streets. The suit is much different take on the character, even the Ultimate version of the character (pictured at right). Many felt it went too far away from the character. Well, these newly discovered images, from Jared Krichevsky, via Screen Crush, show off some of the different designs that were considered for the character. As you can see, they are far less clunky and resemble a rhino more so than the final design used. Albeit, an up-right take on the animal. I’ve never been a huge fan of the design used in the movie, along with many others and I think these designs would’ve been a bit more fitting.
What do you think? Do you like the final design used in the film, or something like those pictured? OR are you a purist, hoping to see a rhino/human hybrid battling the web-slinger? Sound off below!
