You've Gotta Have Friends: Spidey Gets His Harry Osborn

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | December 3, 2012 | Comments ()


I watched and enjoyed the reboot The Amazing Spider-Man. Admittedly, I was bored to tears while watching the origins portion of the story again, but Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are much better suited to the roles of Spidey and Gwen than Tobey "Sadface" Maguire and Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane. We all knew that this movie would be the start of a new trilogy, but I admit I had forgotten. My memory was jogged by the announcement that Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, "True Blood", Lawless) would be portraying Harry Osborn, aka Green Goblin Part Deux.

In case you didn't know or had forgotten, the villian in Spider-Man 2: Electro's Boogaloo will be Jamie Foxx as Electro. Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) will appear as Mary Jane Watson. Sorry, Franco. No part for you.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Jamie Foxx is going to ruin this movie. That guy can only emote one way, that kind of whisper thing he does. The ONLY movie he has never done that in was Ray. I'm excited for him in Django but Spiderman is not his area.

  • BlackRabbit

    Be interesting to see how evil Foxx goes as Electro. He doesn't play villains very often, I think.

  • Hollyg Gwen is just out of the sequel? Are they going to make an off-hand mention about ex-girlfriend at the star of the movie and be done with it?

  • foolsage

    Gwen Stacy is in this movie, as well as Mary Jane Watson. Aaaaand that's all I'm going to say, to avoid the spoilers which abound on this topic.

  • Considering Gwen Stacy has a very important role in a Green Goblin story (and I'm surprised you don't know about it, considering how famous it is, but don't google it if you want to be unspoiled), I'm sure she will be in it as well.

  • You do realize that Franco will probably be the dessert caterer on set, because that's his new thing for the week.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Because they had to find someone so frail, he makes Garfield not look like such a beanpole, and Ben Whishaw is now too badass, thanks to "Skyfall".

    And other such bitchy "Spiderman" comments that rhyme, y'all.

  • Where's the Maguire hate coming from? He was pretty good.

    Only Thomas Haden Church escaped "Spider-Man 3: Emo Pete" relatively unscathed.
