Spider-Man Movie to have SEVERAL villains

Spider-Man Rogues

Paul Giamatti was quoted saying there will be SEVERAL villians in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2. Giamatti is playing the role of the Rhino. He is confirmed as well as Jamie Foxx as Electro.

This might be a concern to fans due to the past problem of overcrowding a movie. In the last Toby Maguire Spider-Man we had Venom, Sandman and the Green Goblin!! This can easily kill a movie or franchise. Tune into our next show to hear what our resident Spider-Man fan Pete thinks!
