Chris Cooper To Play Norman Osborn in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2!

While there has been some speculation on who will be playing Norman Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, nothing was ever set in stone. That all changes today as The Hollywood Reporter has reported that actor Chris Cooper will be playing the Oscorp CEO. Variety first reported he joined the cast, but was unsure of what character he was playing.

I kinda have mix feelings for this choice, but he's not a bad choice at all. Just I can't see him becoming the Green Goblin, unless he has a stunt double, or they completely make him Hulk Goblin (Oh please God no). There's rumors that Dane DeHaan, who is playing Harry Osborn, is probably gonna be the Green Goblin instead. After all it has been reported that Dane is working out for the role. I hope this isn't the case, because I want to see the original Green Goblin take on Spider-Man in this new series. But I guess we will have to see how this all pans out.

In the comics, Norman famously becomes the Green Goblin. However, there are no plot details at this time to suggest that he will make an appearance in the film as the Goblin. Cooper joins the already jam packed cast that features returning stars Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, and Sally Field as Aunt May. Also rounding out the cast are new comers Jamie Foxx as Electro, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, and Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane. The film is set to hit theaters on May 2, 2014.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Begins Production!

New York, February 5, 2013 – Columbia Pictures announced today that filming has begun on The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2 in New York. The film is the first in the history of the franchise that will be filmed entirely in New York City and New York State.

The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Field.

In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers.

The film’s key behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Dan Mindel, production designer Mark Friedberg, editors Pietro Scalia and Elliot Graham, and costume designer Deborah L. Scott.

The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.
