I saw an interview recently too where the director said Rhino is only in the film for like two minutes. Why even bother at that point?

To set up the gajilliony-dollar Sinister Six films/franchise that they announced, of course.

More and more it's looking like this is my least anticipated summer superhero flick.  Might not even catch it in theaters at this point (full disclosure - I ended up waiting for Netflix for the first one too).

Maybe he serves as the intro villain?  "We join our hero Spider-Man mid-fight against the evil super-villain Rhino!"  Explosions.  Knock-out.  Rhino to jail.  It'd be better than them starting out with Peter knocking out some mugger.

Maybe he is like the Underminer in the Incredibles. He shows up for the last 30 seconds and Spidy goes to work on him.

Exactly.  There's all sorts of legit reasons he'd only appear briefly.  So I wouldn't write the movie off as awful just because he makes a cameo.

I hope that's the case, really.  Having too many villains can dilute the story.  Though interesting that Paul Giamatti would do a quick appearance... though it happened all the time with Mission Impossible movies and Cillian Murphy in the latest Batman trilogy.

I think they are developing Paul's character and only at the end he gets the suit. It's kind of a to be continued thing.
