It is no secret that Spider-Man lovers are spinning in circles trying to find out about all the different plots and intrigue in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie. Will Gwen Stacy die; will Harry Osborn take over Oscorp; will the blue electrified Electro outwit Spidey and what is the role of the powerful Rhino played by Paul Giametti? These mysteries and suspense will have to remain intact until next year, 2014, when the film is released.

What we do know is that the movie is shot in New York City and stars talent such as Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giametti as Rhino. With such a great cast in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 along with fascinating villains, one thing is for sure, movie goers are guaranteed to be caught up in a web of action and intrigue.

Paul Giametti as Rhino has Always Enjoyed Comic Books
Paul Giametti admits that he always enjoyed comics books as a kid and that he has had tremendous fun in playing the role of The Rhino; even though the image of Rhino has been slightly updated. In the Marvel Comics, Rhino, whose real name is Aleksei Sytsevich is part of the Russian mafia. He undergoes genetic manipulation and is given superhuman abilities which are further enhanced by a suit he wears.

The fictional character who appears in the comic books published by Marvel Comics, has also featured in other Marvel -endorsed products like video games and television series as well as merchandise.

A Popular Character in a Number of Movies
Even though The Rhino dies in the movie known as The Hulk, his character was so popular, that he has been revived to become aformidable opponent for Spider-Man. Rhino has had quite a significant role in movies like Spider-Man's Tangled Web and Flowers for Rhino.

The Rhino character has re-appeared in a number of movies and he teams up with other villains, among which is Electro. He has also joined criminal groups like the Sinister Syndicate in order to take on Spider-Man as well becoming a member of Doctor Octopus' Sinister Six.

Around the Clock Physical Exertion Doesn't Phase Rhino
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2 , Rhino certainly isn't one of the brightest villain characters you can get. He came about when as a thug, he was working for an Eastern block country, Russia, volunteering to take part in an experiment that bonded a super strong polymer to his skin, providing his strength. The Rhino possesses superhuman strength with his suit on, and it was mutagenic chemical and radiation treatments which provide the character with this superhuman strength and speed.

The Rhino's musculature is super capable, and during physical exertion, he doesn't tire easily, and can in fact exert himself for up to 24 hours and only then does he start to tire. The suit he dons in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is similar to the hide of a Rhinoceros and comes complete with a horn. The suit is able to resist damage and temperature extremes, but even without the suit, Rhino's body is resistant to physical injury; the suit just provides a higher degree of resistance to physical injury.

Where is The Rhino's Brute Force Directed?
It was in the 1960s that The Rhino first appeared as a thug from Russia, but it has been suggested that The Rhino has softened somewhat and becomes friendlier with Spidey. With the Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie set for release in May 2014, movie goers are dying to find out who Spidey's real enemies are and if The Rhino will use his horn in combat against the web-slinger or if his brute force will be rather used in the fight against crime.
