They certainly are sparing no expense ensuring that the cast of the second installment of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise is just as talented — AND A-LIST — as the first, aren't they?!
With production of the Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone-starring, web-slinging super-hero extravaganza expected to start production as early as February, we've already gotten word that Shailene Woodley is kicking Kirsten Dunst to the curb and taking on Mary-Jane Watson duties, as Dane DeHaan is doing to James Franco for Harry Osborn, while Jamie Foxx has suited up as Electro!
Well, according to the latest casting buzz, it looks as though the Django Unchained star will not be the sole villian this time around, as Paul Giamatti is said to be in talks to take on the role of the equal parts iconic and nefarious Rhino… and apparently, this is a bit of dream come true for him!
Apparently, long before production on the initial reboot even began, the actor mentioned the character on Conan:
“He would run at stuff real fast and smash into it. I think I would be the best Rhino possible.”
Guess we're going to find out for ourselves soon enough, right?!
Furthermore, Like Crazy star Felicity Jones is ALSO joining the cast in an undisclosed role!
But with Mary Jane and Gwen Stacy already spoken for, we can't help but wonder what other lady in Spidey's life is available!
Perhaps we'll finally be seeing a brand new Betty Brant?! Or maybe even THE BLACK CAT?!
Oh man! Oh man! Either way, we have MORE than just a feeling that this is going to be AWESOME!
What do U think?? Are U excited for the latest peeps coming on board for Spider-Man 2?!
