Get an up close look at Dane DeHaan's Green Goblin from Amazing Spider-Man 2
We've gotten a lot of teases and glimpses of the Green Goblin in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 and now we have an up close and personal view of the webhead's main nemesis, as portrayed by actor Dane DeHaan. It's a genuinely creepy image and a bit more goblin-ish than Willem Dafoe or James Franco's versions in the first SPIDER-MAN trilogy. Based on what we're seeing I get the feeling that this could potentially be the first step in Gobby's transformation, leading to *gasp* a fully GREEN Green Goblin. Sequels will tell, but that's my impression.
Of course, there's the case of the Ultimate Green Goblin (below, along with the regular one), who is more of a 'roided-out beast than a traditional goblin. DeHaan's stature is more befitting of the original Green Goblin than the pumped-up version in the Ultimate universe, though. One of the problems with Marvel's Ultimate universe is that it gives filmmakers way too many options when translating to the big screen, as they tend to smash the regular and ultimate universes together when adapting the material, which can be confusing, especially for hardcore fans. That said, I'm looking forward to seeing DeHaan's Goblin in action and, more importantly, where his journey will go beyond the sequel.
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 hits theaters on May 2, 2014.
