So it's Rhino and Electro.

I love Paul but I didn't like The Amazing Spider-Man. If I see this at all it'll be because of Paul.

Supposedly it's the Ultimate Mecha-Rhino version they are using, not traditional Rhino.

They also say Felicity Jones will play either Mary-Jane or Black Cat.

Shailene Woodley has already been cast as Mary Jane.

If this was to happen... I'd still go see the movie but it would take a lot for me to like Rhino.

Rhino was dumb even in the cartoon.

Agreed. So is Electro. Not to mention that I kind of think if they were going to cast Paul Giamatti, he would have been a better choice to play Doc Ock!

Since this is a reboot anyway, I wish they would have Green Goblin, and not some stupid metal suit goblin, either. I mean a real live guy transformed into the Green Goblin. If they are casting Mary Jane already, that means Gwen Stacy is getting offed eventually, anyway, so it's time to redo the Green Goblin right!

And speaking of Gwen Stacy era villains, why not Jackyl, or even Mysterio? With the CGI they can do these days, Mysterio might actually be pretty cool to see on screen.

Is Mysterio the guy that had a fishbowl for a head? Because if so, I'm on board!

Swarm!

I want a post-credit scene of the Rhino whining "****ing Parker" and near tears.

Same here, except for the loving Paul part (sorry, don't really even know who he is). I do know I was not thrilled with the last movie. Rhino, in general, isn't too exciting. Wasn't too keen on the whole Jamie Foxx casting, either (a black Electro - I assume that's an Ultimate thing?). All in all, this movie is adding up to a nice trip with the kids to the budget theater. Or a Saturday afternoon rental.

He was the guy in Sideways, played John Adams in the miniseries by the same name, and played pig vomit in that Howard Stern movie. I know he has done more, but that is all I know him from.

Well, I would suspect that alone on your resume would open just about any door for you in Hollywood.

And if not that, the miniseries John Adams. He was excellent in that.

I'm down for this. I always thought Rhino would be a good minor villain in a Spidey movie. Better an actor like Giamatti than some pro wrestler or something.

I've always wanted to see Black Cat on screen, but Felicity Jones could also be playing Betty Brant.

Also, Colm Feore is in the movie, and word is he's probably Norman Osborn.

One more thing, I hope they don't call this thing Amazing Spider-Man 2. C'mon, The Spectacular Spider-Man!

They need to save that for 2016. Y'know, for the next reboot.

...and in Riddick, I don't care what anyone says.

I still want to see him play a badass Sith Lord, and who knows - that could still happen.

Maybe we'll get to see Colm Feore drop Gwen Stacy off a building!

I avoided SM3 at all costs just to avoid seeing how inevitably botched Venom would be.

True, but even with the CGI we have today, you saw what they did to Liz.
