Paul Giamatti is a *good* actor and could bring something to the franchise, subby, just like Alfred Molina did with Spider-Man 2.

Save that Fail tag for yourself.

And the Hulk wasn't even played by a huge green guy!

THE NERVE!

The problem is, Hulk is a transformation from small guy to big buy.  Rhino is some big dude in a suit.  Paul Giamatti is 5'9" tall.  He could play a crime boss maybe, but not a hulking thug like Rhino.

Paul G. could play your left testicle and still do a better job than your current one.

Some characters won't translate well to the screen.  Elektro was already on that list for the next film.  This doesn't help.

I still remember the outrage when they announced that Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker.

I was a part of that group at the time, to be honest.

That's why I'm far more openminded towards the idea of Giamatti playing the villain here.

Agreed. Have people not seen Shoot 'Em Up?

I was hoping they were going to do Mysterio.

Thing is Giamatti makes for good characters that talk. He doesn't look tough. The Rhino isn't chatty, he's all muscle. Is he going to be all CGI?

he seems a bit more cerebral than i remember the rhino being. it is an odd choice, imho.

still, id watch it only for him.

Might work. Hopefully looks better than The Lizard did.

Yeah but wouldn't that make him taller than most actors in Hollywood?

They're all midgets. Fancy camera work makes them all look like giants.

Look at Tom Cruise. He's like 3' tall.

Well, kinda. In the latest episode of Ultimate Spider-Man they turned Rhino into basically a rhino version of the Lizard. Some dweeb high school kid gets bullied by Flash and drinks some chemicals he found while interning at OzCorp and turns into an actual human/rhino hybrid.

With longer rhino-y ears and the IQ of a banana.

/why can't all episodes have Ava in a bikini?

Paul Giamatti will begin eating nothing but steroids from now on.

Consequently, I look forward to "Sideways 2".

His left testicle could be a bigger, badder Spidey villian, too.

They were outraged because a relatively unrespected actor was cast in a really cool role. This is the opposite of that.

Yeah, you could say it's the audience's fault, but I have a hard time blaming the victims.

How does Rhino get his suit on? Does the face-hole stretch out like 20 times to get around his torso? Or does it have a zipper or something?
 
2013-01-28 08:56:54 PM  
Whoever is cast as that character is going to have a boatload of makeup, prosthetics and "CGI" that it won't really matter if it's Verne Troyer playing the part.

In fact, can we please cast Verne Troyer? Pretty please?
 
2013-01-28 09:01:20 PM  
The problem isn't his size. Hollywood can handle that. Rhino is a huge hulking idiot. What's the point of having an accomplished actor play that? He'd be a great Mysterio.

The Rhino in the movie doesn't *have* to be a hulking big guy. That's the source material, yes, but that doesn't mean they have to stick with it. Doc Ock wasn't a buzz-cut, megalomaniac like he was in the comic books either and that made him better as a character.

They should play to Paul's strength as a devious and unpredictable villain and I think it would bring much more to the movie than having the dumbass-who-runs-at-people Rhino like the comics.

So put a tail on him and do Scorpion. It's Rhino. He charges head first into things and is brutally strong. That's the challenge of the villain.

IMDb says Cruise is 5'7". But I know, everyone who's under 6' is a midget to you people.

As I understand, Rhino in "Ultimate Spider-Man" is simply a nerdy guy in a robotic suit. I can see that interpretation being used for a film.

I don't understand why the supervillains don't just send Hydro-Man after Spider-Man.  Spider-Man wouldn't stand a chance.

I think Spidey has pretty much owned him because he's also an idiot and Parker is near-genius.

There was an Avengers comic in which Loki gave Hydro Man the intelligence to know how to use his powers, and he whipped the sh*t out of a couple of Avengers.

But that's because Spider-Man doesn't fight fair.  Spider-Man just electrocutes him every time they fight.  If you took away Spider-Man's powers and gave them to Hydro-Man, Spider-Man wouldn't stand a chance.

Paul Giamatti has been in some movies that I didn't love, but he's always been enjoyable, and is a great actor. I don't know that I'd cast him as The Rhino, but due to the magic of special effects, I wouldn't count him out in any role. His skills as an actor outweighs his mass as a giant fatass, is what I'm saying.

Still not my first pick for that role, but he never disappoints me. I'd have cast Paul Wight, because he's huge and a D+ actor, but he's big, and I'm no casting agent.
