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.
