NextMovie: 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Rhino Costume

Paul Giamatti spent part of the Memorial Day holiday weekend stalking New York's streets as The Rhino, the comic villain who makes his screen debut in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."

Previously, we'd seen a bit of what Jaimie Foxx will look like as Electro as well as set pics of Giamatti in character as Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich. But these photos, from a scene director Marc Webb called "Park Ave Showdown" on Twitter, are a step closer to what the finished costume will be all about onscreen. The Yale University grad and Oscar nominated actor from "Sideways" and "American Splendor" will get his thug on as the notoriously dim-witted villain created by Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr.
