Marc Webb Tweets The First Pic Of Paul Giamatti As Aleksei Sytsevich


spider-man bannerBryan Singer isn’t the only director tweeting behind the scenes pics during filming for an upcoming film. Marc Webb has posted a picture a day since The Amazing Spider-Man 2 started production. The majority of the pics have been of the literal filming, with shots of cameras and producers scattered around the movie’s sets. Today Webb tweeted the first official look of Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich aka The Rhino.

The picture for Day 66 of filming was tweeted twice with a caption in two different languages. Both say the same thing, but one is in Slovak and one is in Russian. It basically says “Hello, America. Meet Aleksei Sytsevich” big tip of the hat to Google Translate on that one. This confirms that the stuntman we saw driving the tow truck in the big police chase was indeed wearing a really good Paul Giamatti mask (click here for original story). So what do you think of our first look at Giamatti? Do you think he’ll just be a Russian mobster who is called The Rhino or will he actually suit up? The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters May 2, 2014

In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
