Chris Cooper, who won an Oscar for his role in Adaptation, has confirmed that he will be playing Norman Osbourne in next summer’s Spider-Man sequel. THR tells us that there is no information on whether Cooper will portray Osbourne as the villainous Green Goblin, or he will just be introduced in this movie and set up to be the villain in the next film.
The inclusion of Norman Osbourne seems natural when considering his son Harry, played by Dane Dehaan of Chronicle, has already been confirmed for the film. I kept waiting to see Osbourne in the first movie since Peter was hanging out at OsCorp all the time but we never got a peek at him. I really loved Willem Dafoe’s portrayel in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, but I’m excited to see how Cooper will do.
I expect that Osbourne/Green Goblin will take a backseat in this movie, leaving room for the already announced villains: Electro played by Jamie Fox and The Rhino played by Paul Giamatti.
Stay tuned for further more updates on The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
