FIRST LOOK: Paul Giamatti as The Rhino in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

OK, so the title of this post is a bit misleading. We know that Paul Giamatti is playing the Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but this first look is of the actor as Aleksei Sytsevich, the Rhino's alter ego. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb has been using Twitter to give fans a daily look at his upcoming film. Some tweets are trivial behind-the-scenes things, while others are big first looks. On Saturday, we got one of those big first looks, with Webb tweeting the first photo of Giamatti as Sytsevich.

The interesting part of this picture is the makeup Giamatti is rocking. During The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Rochester, N.Y., shoot, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the stuntman leading police cars on a chase was wearing a mask that made him look quite similar to Giamatti. Fans saw the tattoos and assumed the character was some kind of Russian mobster, which would connect him to the Rhino's character history. Now that we have this official shot of Giamatti, it's clear that the stuntman was filling in for Giamatti. When we finally get to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theaters, we'll now know that this entire car chase was filmed in Rochester with the shots of Giamatti himself probably filmed on some soundstage.
