Following the announcement that production had begun on the Amazing Spider-Man sequel yesterday, Columbia Pictures have no issued a press released regarding the movie’s official synopsis.
Check it out!
Interestingly enough, there’s no mention of The Rhino. Readers of the blog may recall recent casting speculation concerning Paul Giamatti playing the cult horned villain but it’s rather intriguing Rhino isn’t mentioned at all.
Perhaps the speculation was false? Perhaps the actor was never in talks? That would be kind of okay in terms of the movie story – the two villain Spider-Man movie has proved problematic in the past and I’d rather they concentrate on story rather than through awesome actors at the movie.
But what if the Rhino is in the movie? What if he has a small cameo leading up to a bigger part in the third movie? It could happen. Electro appeared at the end of the first Amazing Spider-Man movie after all.
If that’s the case, what about Harry Osborn? A lot of people consider his inclusion a lead up to The Green Goblin in the third movie. If The Rhino is in for the third movie, where does that leave Osborn?
A lot of interesting questions, I hope get answered and soon. Anyway, check out the synopsis below!
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.
What do you think? Does the synopsis make Amazing Spider-Man 2 look all that more tantalising? Are you eager to see the movie? Will Paul Giamatti feature as The Rhino? Let me know what you think in the comments below – it’d be awesome to hear your opinion.
