Chris Cooper to play Norman Osborn/Green Goblin in Amazing Spider-Man 2

Jamie Foxx is playing Electro. Paul Giamatti is set for Rhino. Now comes news from Deadline that Chris Cooper will take on the role of Norman Osborn – aka the Green Goblin – in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.


That means Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) will be squaring off against not one, not two, but three villains in his upcoming big screen adventure.

Boy, that’s the exact same number as Tobey Maguire faced in Sam Raimi’s ill-fated Spider-Man 3. (*Gulp*)

Norman Osborn was portrayed by Willem Dafoe in the original trilogy.

Emma Stone will return as Gwen Stacy, though her fate is now in question with the Goblin is involved.

Thankfully, Pete’s other great love, Mary Jane Watson, will make her first appearance in the rebooted franchise. Shailene Woodley has the part.

Dane DeHaan will star as Norman’s son, Harry, in the flick.

Marc Webb returns to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2, set for release May 2014.
