New ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Pic Gets Up Close and Personal With the Green Goblin


When Willem Dafoe played the Green Goblin back in 2002’s ‘Spider-Man,’ hardcore Spidey fans were none too happy with his costume. The iconic villain is making a return in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘ (and will now be played by ‘Chronicle’ star Dane DeHaan) and the new design couldn’t be more different. Our best look yet at DeHaan in costume and make-up has arrived online, giving us a taste of what to expect from Spider-Man’s arch nemesis.

Gone is the bulky, ‘Power Rangers’ villain suit! The Green Goblin now looks like, uh, an elf with a skin condition. If you hoped DeHaan would actually resemble like his comic book counterpart, this new look will probably be a disappointment. He doesn’t look like a Goblin and there’s not a lot of green. But we’ll give director Marc Webb this much: he has managed to make DeHaan look truly creepy and that’s more important than sticking close to comic book canon.

It’s not like ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ isn’t already diverging from its source material in a huge way. In the Marvel comic book world, the Green Goblin is the villainous alter-ego of Norman Osborn, but in this film, it’s his son, Harry Osborn, who undergoes the transformation. In other words, they’ve gone ahead and jumped straight to aping ‘Spider-Man 3′ instead of ‘Spider-Man.’ Take from that what you will.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ swings into theaters on May 2, 2014. What do you think about the Goblin’s new look?
