The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is shaping up to be a great adventure full of intriguing characters (see: Jamie Foxx) and now, we catch a glimpse at another Spidey villain! Director Marc Webb tweeted another first look at another one of The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s many villains. We’ve already seen Jamie Foxx as Electro / Max Dillon, and Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osborn looks appropriately bratty but we had yet to see anything regarding Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich, a.k.a. The Rhino. Now, thanks to the wonders of social media, we have…

The photo features a super-duper angry Giamatti behind the wheel of a truck (could he be trying to run over Spidey?) and doesn’t show any special “Rhino”-like characteristics, but he’s definitely mean and got a lot of menacing tattoos. Webb, utilizing his flair of language, tweeted, “Hello America. Meet Aleksei Sytsevich!” The former Eastern Bloc goon does look more diabolical than anyone was expecting. What do you think? The Amazing Spider-Man 2 finds Andrew Garfield returning as everyone’s favorite neighborhood superhero alongside Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley (as Mary Jane), Dane DeHaan, Giamatti and Jamie Foxx. The sequel will swing into theaters on May 2, 2014. Props: Slash Film
