THR reports that Giamatti is in final stages to take the role and Jones could likely be Black Cat. The “Sideways” star has claimed to wanting to play Rhino for a while.

“I thought Rhino was the greatest thing when I was a little kid,” he told ShowbizSpy in March 2011. “It was a guy who was basically in this rhinoceros outfit, and I always thought, ‘Why don’t they have The Rhino in one of their movies.’ But maybe The Rhino wasn’t that big of a deal for anybody but me. … If they ever go with The Rhino, I would be ready and waiting.”

The Spider-Man reboot’s second chapter already stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are back as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, Jamie Foxx is portraying bad guy Electro, Shailene Woodley is Mary Jane Watson, and Dane DeHaan is Harry Osborne.

The article details the Rhino as “The Rhino first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #41in 1966 as a thug from a Soviet Bloc country who wore a superhuman suit that made him invulnerable while giving him superstrength and superspeed. It also had a deadly horn on top. In more recent comics, he became a sympathetic figure who found himself allying with Spider-Man.”

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” comes to theaters May 2, 2014.
