  • "I believe there's a lot of stage-setting for the next film. There are several villains in this movie, and some of them are more foreground and important. Jamie Foxx is and stuff. A couple of us are more hanging around the background because I think there will be a bigger deal."
  • "[about the Sinister Six] I don't actually know, but that seems to be what they're doing. I'm not an idiot either, but I can't claim hard and fast knowledge of this. I won't. I can't because I don't actually know, but you and I can speculate."
  • "In the comic books of old, Rhino had a suit on that made him look like a rhino and it made him super strong. If there was a bank vault, he could butt through it with his head but he wasn't very smart. In the film it's updated now, I have a particular type of suit but I don't think I'm supposed to talk about it. He's a Russian mobster because he's a Russian guy in the comic books."
