Paul Giamatti is in talks to join The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as a new adversary from the comics, namely The Rhino.
While Giamatti may not physically look much like the 300+ muscular bad guy from the Spidey books, Giamatti's excellent acting could certainly bring an added layer of complexity to the character. First introduced in 1966, The Rhino has remained a popular villain in Spider-Man's rogues gallery, returning again and again to bring mayhem to Manhattan.
Also in talks to join the sequel's cast is Felicity Jones (Like Crazy). She's up for an unspecified part.- The Hollywood Reporter. Comment on this Scoop (0)

If you've read old back issues of The Amazing Spider-Man comic book then you may remember that the villain Electro went around Manhattan dressed in a yellow-and-green costume, complete with a star-like head ornament. That won't be the get-up Jamie Foxx wears on-screen when he appears in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie, as he told Blackfilm.
"It won’t be green and yellow. It will be a different color. They (the producers) want something for the future," explained the Oscar-winning actor. "They want to have it more grounded and not as comic bookie, so it won’t be green and yellow. They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happen. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff."- Blackfilm. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Variety breaks news about some new characters that we will see in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but most of them are only new in the sense that they didn't appear in the first movie.
First up is the character of Mary-Jane Watson, one of Peter's love interests. The character was portrayed in Sony's first three Spider-Man movies by Kirsten Dunst. For The Amazing Spider-Man, director Marc Webb chose to focus on the other major love of Peter Parker's life, Gwen Stacy.
Variety adds that Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) is the frontrunner for the Mary-Jane role.
Next is a talent search for two male characters. One is for Harry Osborne (played by James Franco in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy), a friend of Peter's that eventually turns into an adversary.
The third and final character sought for ASM2 is that of a new villain to the Spider-Man movie franchise, namely Electro. In the credits sequence to the first movie we see an unrevealed person approach Dr. Curt Connors in his jail cell. Lightning appears around this mysterious character, which heavily hints that Electro is coming soon into the wall-crawler's life.- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)

They've tackled J.J. Abrams reboot of the Star Trek universe, Paramount's Transformers and the third Mission: Impossible movie. Now they've been hired to rewrite James Vanderbilt's first crack at the Amazing Spider-Man 2 screenplay. Their names are Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and this is what they had to say about landing the job:
"We grew up as huge Spider-Man fans so, to us, the opportunity to work on this film is akin to being handed the Holy Grail. We love the direction Sony and the filmmakers are taking the Peter Parker/Spider-Man mythology and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this legendary franchise."- Sony Pictures.

The origin of Peter Parker's evolution into becoming Spider-Man will "unfold" over the sequels to come. That's what Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb told MTV News about his plans for future Spidey films.
"I wanted to give the audience something new, so that started off with getting underneath the parents' story, which will unfold over probably a few movies," Webb said. "We don't totally wrap up that story in this first movie. It's sort of an ongoing mystery. That was something that was interesting to me."
However, not everything about the origin of Spider-Man will be departing from the norn. Webb also said that there will be specific elements from the comic books and past movies that will play out the same in future ASM films, "obligations to the canon, in terms of Uncle Ben and the spider-bite, but the conditions under which those things happen are very different."- MTV.
