New rumors emerge regarding the Green Goblin costume in The Amazing Spider-man 2

06.24.2013

Do I even need to say this story may contain massive spoilers for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, so you better turn back now if you don't want to know anything about the film? Probably not, but I will say it anyway just to be safe. Just a few days ago we told you about when to expect the first appearance of Green Goblin in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 as well as news on the appearance of Black Cat. Now we have news on what Green Goblin's costume will look like in the sequel. Will it be Power Ranger-esque like in the Sam Raimi film? Or will it be a physical transformation like Lizard, Rhino, and Electro in the Marc Webb films?

The answer is a little of both. According to Screen Rant, both MovieWeb and ComicBookMovie have scored detailed rumors on the Goblin outfit. Check out the details:

ComicBookMovie: the suit will once again “resemble” some type of armor (though really, short of having him wear spandex or mutating him what other options are there?). We’re told it’ll be a matte black and dark green design with spikes — not too dissimilar to Ultimate Green Goblin’s look apparently, though obviously Osborn will still be human.

MovieWeb: We now have a more accurate description of Green Goblin’s suit of armor, and apparently the costume designers are taking both a nod from Tony Stark’s Iron Man and Christopher Nolan‘s Catwoman… Green Goblin’s suit will be made up entirely of matte black armor that resembles a hi-tech motocross suit. The suit will remain open-faced, and there will be no helmet at all. Norman will have green hair that is spiked high up. In his ears, he will be wearing a Bluetooth device that will make it look as though he has the Green Goblin’s signature pointed ears, the same way Selina Kyle’s goggles worked in creating the illusion that she had cat ears. The back of the armor has a spine. At the moment, there are no green accents. From a distance, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Tony Stark’s signature Mark XLII armor had been painted black.

Uh, no mask?  Green hair?  I cannot picture Chris Cooper looking anything but foolish in an outfit like that.  Unless they are planning an actual physical transformation of his face, which ComicBookMovie seems to refute, this might look kind of goofy.  But, I wasn't too sure of Electro's new look either and Jamie Foxx looks pretty damn cool in the blue body paint.

In regards to Black Cat, the article goes on to theorize that both Felicity Jones and Dane DeHaan are being groomed for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 as a launching point for their future in Sony's Marvel universe.  Could a Black Cat movie be coming soon?  If theories are true and DeHaan will be playing Harry Osborn and potentially Venom, we may finally see that villainous spin-off we have been hearing about for years.

Either way this goes, Sony seems to really be thinking this through instead of just launching a ton of bad guys at Spider-man.  I cannot think of another superhero movie that has successfully pulled off having the hero battle foes in multiple places at the same time.  THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 may be gearing up for a multi-film story that actually works.  Spider-man may not be able to save Gwen Stacy in the movie because he cannot fight Rhino, Electro, Vulture, or anyone else at the same time.  The stakes finally seem high enough to make this sequel work well.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 opens May 2, 2014 followed by THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3 and 4 in 2016 and 2018.

Surprise, surprise.

Alex Maidy strikes again. Or, to call him by his super-villain name, "The Rumor Monger".

Relax people! And not that I want to come to the defense of Fox here, really don't, but let's not forget this is a RUMOR. I'm certain they'll find a way to ruin the movie somehow, but I have a feeling it won't be in the form of the Green Goblin's costume.

Takes a cue from Christopher Nolan's Catwoman....so do we get to see Chris Cooper's butt as he rides away on a motorcycle? Did I type that out loud?

Dont Worry -

people will piss all over this shitfest, then they will reboot this yet again and get it done right. It took Superman Returns to get Man of Steel. It took Batman and Robin (even though Forever was really bad too) to get Batman Begins. So say we all.

This sounds terrible. And it's a shame too, because Green Goblin is one of my favorite Spider-Man villains and having him fighting Spider Man again only to have him butchered in this new reboot sucks.

I loved Raimi's version. Power Ranger looking suit and all. DaFoe made for a perfect Norman Osborne/Green Goblin.

i give up. nothing about any of this new cast has me excited for this film. out of all the comic characters in the world, Spiderman has always been my favorite, not Wolverine, not Superman, not Batman or Hulk, just Spiderman, now i read that they are tweeking this and that, why cant we have a somewhat faithful look to our favorite and not so favorite characters. I saw the Mask Dafoe almost wore in the Raimi Spiderman film, it was bad ass, just like the comic. but now everyone has this hair up

Spiderman is still my favorite, but only in comics.

At the end of the day...

... these are rumours.

Detailed rumours, but rumours nonetheless.

An open-faced costume with no helmet. That will be great. Because everyone loved when Venom was mostly Topher Grace's face instead of the iconic venom mask. Oh wait, except they didn't. Seriously, if the studio doesn't learn from the previous mistakes this film deserves to fail.

How Hard is it?

Seriously how hard is it to get a good looking Green Goblin outfit? Dafoe excelled so much in the role that it overshadowed the stupid costume he was wearing and the less said about the Goblin Surfer the better. I was hoping they could atleast improve on it for this new film, but that does not seem to be the cause. Having some kind of armor is okay and actually makes practical sense for this guy who is zipping around on a rocket powered glider. But how hard would it be for them to throw a cloak

Nice big hood that covers most of his head that way only a bit of his face can be seen. That would look SOOOO much cooler than what this report states and guess what it would actually look like the comic! Would be a great visual to see Gobbie zipping around the city his cloak blowing in the wind. Like the author of the article stated Cooper is gonna look stupid as all hell with spiked up green hair. ahahhahaahahahah seriously it's gonna look terrible

This also sounds so bad. I hope this turns out to be false. I was hoping we'd finally get a mutated GG this time around.

Hope to god this is wrong. The only thing that sounds vaguely interesting is him having a headpiece that serves a dual purpose (one that is useful, and an other that gives some appearance of a goblin) a la Catwoman.

Who knows if/how true it is, but it sounds awful. Green Goblin is not Iron Man. The more things they do differently from Raimi's movies the better; if only to make it seem like we're seeing something NEW. They're modeling other things after the Ultimate comics so why not do that with the Goblin? It's like they're afraid to do anything even remotely different with this series.

This whole "trying to be as realistic as possible when it comes to comic movies" is really fucking up the spirit of these films. I saw Captain America again last night and saw his red, white, and blue bodysuit and wings on his helmet and thought it looked awesome. Hollywood... it's OKAY to have a little *fantasy* in a comic book movie, we don't mind! We already accept that a radioactive spider gave Peter Parker his powers... some pointed ears and a little green spandex wont freak us out.

I agree...in some ways, Nolan's vision of Batman has really given Hollywood the wrong frakking idea.

I didn't knew that Green Goblin would even be in this movie until I read the headline. Did I missed it or is his appearence already spoiler?

It has been rumored for months. I guess if you're into movie news this is not a spoiler. If you have been living under a rock, it is.

Meh. See how it all goes. I'll give the movie a fair chance like the first film. Personally I never hated Goblins SM1 costume. Ideal for nerds? No, but functional so I was okay with it. Hope this is the same.

The ONLY thing I dislike from Raimi's first is Goblin's look.

So let's not improve on it! And save it for the film's climax! BRILLIANT!!!
