A photo shoot of Paul Giamatti‘s stunt double who is wearing his character Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich‘s mask, gives us first look at the heavily tattooed ruthless Russian mobster before becoming The Rhino.
The scene involves a tow truck pulling an Oscorp armored car and crashing through police cars.
The folks at SevenWebHeads give a CSI level breakdown of the set photos.
In Marvel Comics, Aleksei Sytsevich was just another thug in the Russian Mafia, grasping at dreams of easy money, and headed for a short brutal life. He got transformed into the Rhino through science in order to kidnap John Jameson.
Also starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters on May 2nd, 2014.
Check out the video and a clip of the action scene being filmed in the streets of Rochester, New York.
