Marc Webb says The Rhino will only be in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for four minutes

March 8th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


With Sony planning a Sinister Six movie, there have been many complaints that Amazing Spider-Man 2, which introduces 3 villains on its own, may be overcrowded.

Marc Webb addressed this during his his South by Southwest keynote on Saturday at the Austin Convention Center.

Webb made it clear that he believes in go big or go home:

“I’m going to embrace the spectacle. I’m not going to be beholden to smallness. I want it to be fantastic, to be big, to command and express that feeling when you’re a kid and reading the comics. … I didn’t want to hide or shy away from that.”

During a Q&A a fan reminded Webb that the third installment of Sam Raimi‘s original trilogy, 2007’s Spider-Man 3, was undone by the inclusion of too many villains. The fan then pointed out that Webb’s sequel runs the same risk.

Webb explained:

“We’re obviously familiar with the complaints people had. We’re very careful to make sure the stories intertwine. For Peter Parker, it’s very important that you create obstacles that are difficult to overcome.”

Webb further explained that Paul Giamatti’s character is:

 “in the movie for four minutes.”
