Chris Cooper cast in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

By Tribute on February 28, 2013 | 6 Comments

Spider-Man may need a sidekick for the sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as well as more screen time. Can Spidey handle three villains, as well as two women vying for his love and attention? The newest member cast, playing villain no. 3, is Chris Cooper (American Beauty) as Norman Osborn, whose alter ego is Green Goblin. Oddly enough, Cooper bares a slight resemblance to Willem Dafoe, who played Green Goblin in director Sam Raimi‘s version of the Spider-Man movies. The new movie, directed by Marc Webb, also stars Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti as villains Electro and The Rhino. Dane DeHaan was also cast last year as Harry Osborn, Peter Parker’s best friend-turned-enemy. As for Peter’s love interests, Emma Stone returns as Gwen Stacy and Shailene Woodley has been cast as Mary Jane Watson. When will there be on-screen time for Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker?

    I really liked The Amazing Spiderman – so much better than the original Spiderman. I can’t wait for the second movie, especially with the line of actors that will be starring in it.

    Chris Cooper, nice. I think great choice, but it would be better if they brought Willem DaFoe back. That would rock. But really Cooper has a great quality he can be seemingly nice to you and severely evil. Otherwise, ya, really there better be lots of killer action with so many villans and 1 hero and all A-list actors.

    Like Spiderman 3 with different villains.

    Could be a lot like Spiderman 3 where there were too many characters and not enough plot. Great lineup though.
