Get a closer look at Green Goblin in new mini-bust from Amazing Spider-Man 2

1 year agoby:

Well. We now have this.

The folks at SevenWebHeads have dug up a mini-bust for Green Goblin in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, which gives us a much closer look at the new incarnation of the character, presumably played by Dane DeHaan. Based on what we've seen of the character in trailers and posters so far, this new version of the character looks much like the Harry Osborn of Raimi's films in terms of the uniform and lack of a mask (but, thankfully not a flying snowboard). However, the face on this Gobby looks much more goblin-like, just without the actual skin tone and, of course, purple hat. He also has claws (but, probably as gloves?), which is a step in the right goblin direction. I'll let these guys dissect it for you, though...

We've also seen Norman Osborn, as portrayed by Chris Cooper, laid up in bed with some nasty skin disease going on, so I'm curious if we'll see another Goblin character emerge from this (probably not, but you never know). DeHaan's version looks serviceable enough to me, but I'd still like to them go all out and give us a, y'know, GREEN Green Goblin. I know, it's a tall order. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing how it all shakes out onscreen and DeHaan is a great choice for the role, even if he looks more like Emo-Peter Parker from SPIDER-MAN 3 than a brillo-pad headed rich boy with daddy issues.

What do you think? Too Beavis or on the right track?

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 hits on May 2, 2014.

I like it, he actually looks like a goblin. It's already a lot better than Willam Dafoe's costume from Spidey 1.

Looks like something Jim Henson might have created. While I don't mind what they've done with Electro, and I actually kind of dig Rhino as a giant mecha kind of thing, this is pretty bad. Goblin looks like a muppet.

It's actually not bad. Let's be real folks, aside from Spiderman's costume, most of his rogues gallery would look ridiculous if they were to lift the exact comic version to the big screen. But this version of the Goblin looks good. He has the face, so what if it's not "green", but he has a green suit that looks pretty bad ass and he has the glider. All in all, it's a good adaptation of the character.

I'm a little more curious about why/how they go the route that Harry Osborne is the

its like what bay does to transformers

Why not make m more like their original versions, who cares if they look silly, its all about their performance, if a clown kills some people no one will laugh at him will they? No despite how he looks they will take him serious.

If that is your argument, and your saying it is all down to performance then what is the big deal about this suit?

I'm not complaining about his suit am i?!
Just dont understand them saying things for example, that electro's costume or goblins wouldnt fit in the real world very well, would have loved to see electro in a green/yellow suit with lightening on his body.

I dont have a problem with it, Never had a problem with Dafoe's either. Didn't affect my experience with the film at all. This is for Green goblin junior and I think it makes sense for a movie translated from comics to go down a military armor route. And not wearing spandex on screen. The greatest test will see how De-Hann handles the performance. I wonder if all the Nay sayer's in this column were all for Rubber Cop.

Never thought they would do worse than the 1st Green Goblins costume. The I saw The New Goblins costume in Spider-Man 3 and thought 'well least they can never do worse than this. Now after watching the video I realize I have been wrong 2 times in a row.
Thank me in 10 years.

I think the next costume won't be better than this.

Okay reverse phycology work your magic!

Looks terrible.

I don't know why this is so hard for Sony. They've gone through 2 different directors, 2 different series, and THREE different takes on GG and they are ALL WRONG.

Meh.
Honestly, I didn't hate Dafoe's suit he had for Goblin since I thought he played the character really well, so in a way it has grown on me. Plus you can find on youtube test costumes for the original first movie using a more comic accurate costume including mask, and it looks good but it would essentially take him like 2 hours to get ready, which would also mean in the movie it would take goblin a long time to suit up. So from that standpoint, I kinda see why Raimi went with military

I'll wait and see how this goblin looks on screen, but for now...just meh.

Dafoe's suit was pretty awesome.

i dont know. maybe i'm just too used to the dafoe suit by now, but it works with the movie. there are scenes where the light off his helmet makes the area at the top of his head turn purple. it's an awesome little detail. there's footage of Sam Raimi testing out a comic-true version of the Goblin face. he must have had a good reason to go with the power ranger version in the end.

Someone please explain to me why all these producers and studio execs are always trying to aim for a 'realistic' take on superhero flicks? Let's all take a step back that the movie's protagonist wears tights, climbs and maneuvers like a spider, while shooting webs because he was bitten by a spider. As fictitious it sounds already, then why can't the antagonists get the same treatment? What is 'reakistic' in the context of superhero films even supposed to mean? Asides from that, I still prefer

Asides from that, I still prefer Raimi's take on spidey because he was a die hard fan and an actual visionary. It still blows my mind that fanboys give him shit and not Avi Arad. He is the one responsible for destroying Raimi's vision for Spider-Man 3 by pushing Raimi to throw Venom into the mix. Avi Arad needs to be booted outta Marvel Studios, and never let near a comic book flick. Nuff said.

The suit is standard hi-tech and doesn't look so bad. His face is pretty evil and creepy looking but the combination of his five-head and that hairdo make him look like a cone-head which looks stupid.

The biggest problem with the first movie is that they re-did the origin story, and therefore were just repeating what we already saw in the Raimi films with a few changes. I thought they would get away from that in the sequel, but everytime I see the goblin stuff I get a big "been there, done that" feeling like I did with the first movie. In someways it feels like this series skipped the Spider-man 2 copy and went right into the Spider-man 3 copy.

I would take Raimi's version of Green Goblin and Green Goblin Jr over this anyday. People complain about DaFoe's and Franco's appearance in their suits, but it never looked like this crap.

I actually really like it. Isn't perfect or the suit from the comics, but looks better than Dafoe and Franco's costume. Appearance-wise I think it looks fine but I think final judgment should be reserved for performance in the film.

heres how I see it

I don't think he will actually be the Green Goblin, Norman may even do this to his son as a test run, and maybe Spidey kills him, prompting Norman to take the serum for revenge against Peter, becoming the actual Green Goblin (probably the ultimate one) and kill Gwen in the third one

Dear lord

Fucking atrocious. Green Goblin, Electro, Rhino all look unbelievably abysmal.

I'm sure all the Sony apologists will say, "looks better than Raimi's Power Ranger suit!!!1!" But can we not do that? The ONLY comparison should be from the COMICS. It seems like the only defense for this awful new franchise is pointing out flaws in the previous one.

Is it possible that two different filmmakers under the same stupid studio execs make separate-but-equally shitty mistakes to these classic

At least it isn't covering William Dafoes face under a plastic mask... Keep an open mind people, there is this thing called "performance" than can make things work in context of the overall film.

Why can't we just get the Comic Green Goblin?

Why do they want to use the classic villain so much that he has made it twice into the movies, but refuse to just give us the dang mask? Is it so hard to imagine that maybe he has a goblin fandom thing going on and when he goes nuts he sees the latex mask with hat sitting there and decides that's his evil persona? I mean why can't he have a mask already! Don't use that stupid Ultimate Green goblin thing, we already have the hulk, and the majority of older fan's have no idea about the
