First look at Paul Giamatti as Aleksei Sytsevich In The Amazing Spider-Man 2

May 11th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

While he’s not suited up as Rhino, director Marc Webb has tweeted a new image from his currently shooting sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which gives us our first official look at Paul Giamatti’s Aleksei Sytsevich. We’ve previously only seen a stunt man in a mask to look like him. The tweet said:

Day 66. Privet, Amerika. Poznakom’tes c Aleksei Sytsevich!

“In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker, life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen, high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro, emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper, Felicity Jones and Sally Field.

The film is set to swing into theaters May 2nd, 2014.
