A new image giving us a better look at Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin has been released, courtesy of FindAnyFilm.com. This marks the best look at Spidey’s arch-enemy from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 yet, and it further hints at how the character may appear.
The upcoming sequel is lousy with villains. It features Electro, Rhino, the Green Goblin, and possibly others, including the Spider-Slayer robots. In terms of Spider-Man lore though, there are none bigger than the Green Goblin. Norman Osborn, the first Green Goblin in the comics, is played by Chris Cooper in the coming film, but it’s Norman’s son Harry (DeHaan’s role) who will be wearing the Goblin’s mask. Harry has frequently taken up the mantle in the comics, and the film seems to be following that path, as we’ve seen teased in previous trailers and images.
Traditionally, the character of the Green Goblin wears a green, goblin-like mask. It appears that DeHaan is not in the looks we’ve had so far at director Marc Webb’s film. Instead, the character looks, well, crazy. Or at least crazed. In the comics, the original Green Goblin was born after Norman Osborn injected himself with a combination of chemicals. It gave him super strength, but also warped his mind. That may be the case in the film as well, but we won’t know for sure until it is released on May 2, 2014.
