Spoilers! The identity of one of the villains in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

If you're wondering why the headline is kind of vague it's because what is old news to one person might be a spoiler for another and it's better to be safe than sorry, especially with all the news about casting and characters for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. So while some of you might know about this villain's appearance in the new movie you probably don't know this new information that has been revealed by Movie Web. You know the drill: do not scroll past the image or you will see spoilers.

Spoiler Buffer

A source for Movie Web was on the set for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 during its final days of filming and has discovered that although Chris Cooper will be Norman Osborn in the new film it'll be Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn that suits up as the Green Goblin. There were some rumors last week about Green Goblin's costume and while the design still doesn't thrill me it does sound like something a high school kid would wear and not a sixty year old business man. Although its not like the traditional Green Goblin costume screams professional but you know what I mean.

It surfaced recently that the climax of the new film would have the Green Goblin's first appearance and Movie Web confirms this as well. An Oscorp Power Plant is used by Electro (Jamie Foxx) as his home and is the source of his power in the film.  It'll also serve as the setting for the final battle in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 which will include Gwen Stacy's apparent demise. I say apparent because the source claims there will be a "fake out" death in the climax, saving her actual death for a future film in the series.

It was also revealed that THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 will have a post credit stinger that will lead directly into the third movie, although it isn't known who or what will be in the mini-movie.

I've given up trying to understand or figure out how things are going to play out in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. If there's news I'll let you all know of course but I'm not going to give any more opinions on the film until I at least see a trailer.

Directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti and Chris Cooper, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 is in theaters May 2nd, 2014.

I'd keep Gwen Stacy around. Mary Jane was always a whiney cunt anyway.

Marc Webb is cool and all, but he cannot keep his movie under tight wraps. JJ Abrams is pretty good at keeping his movies a closed lid.

Bor-ing

Who cares? I'm tired of forcing myself to "like" these properties because they are about iconic herores who's comic books I used to read.
They just aren't very good. And chances are, they'll remain that way.

It sounds as if they're filming three or four different Spider-Man movies all at the same time.

I expect Rhinos character will be smaller compared to Electro and Green Goblin, popping in and out throughout the movie, Electro will be the Tragic Villain who'll help spiderman in the end. much like Dr Octopus from Spiderman 2, although I can't see how Green Goblins character will be portrayed as yet.

I don't know where my anticipation is for this, if it exists at all right now. I didn't see the first one, and I'm waiting for a clearer idea of what the hell they're even doing with all these characters (if indeed they're all in it). But while I had trouble imagining it, if Chris Cooper WAS going to don the Green Goblin outfit, well, that would be something worth checking out. I guess you could say I'm mildly disappointed if this is true.

Movie is still about a year away & yet we are getting so many different conflicting stories, it's impossible to what is true & what is a rumor. It wasn't even this bad for TDKR. SO yea I think I will take this stories with a grain of salt & just wait for a trailer.

The misinformation is great

I have a feeling Gwen will die in this movie and that was probably the main reason they dropped MJ out so the audience can feel her death more. I'm sure the GG will be in the final act one way or another, but he will be saved for TASM 3 for being the main villain.

Extra Tidbit: Gwen will die at the end, Electro will disappear, and Rhino will be sent to prison. Norman will become the GG with Harry becoming a GG/Hobgoblin hybrid. And Vulture will be in the post-credits with GG.

Extra tidbit: I guess with even the "fake death" scene in the movie, it kinda set up the third movie for Spider-Man to be on his "Revenge Rampage" mode, thus make him sliding into the dark side. On that note, it might be good or it might be bad (as in Spider-Man 3).

Love it

We get articles saying Sarah Gadon isn't playing Mary Jane, and that Mary Jane is being cut from the film completely due to Gwen Stacey's death. Now they're saying Gwen Stacey may not die and Harry Osbourne is the Green Goblin.

Gotta love the contradictions the marketing team is letting out for this movie. Who knows, by the time it's released Electro may not even be in the film.

Also, who's BJ Novak playing?!

Sigh

At least he's not Venom......
They did this in the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon, and it worked out pretty well, but at the rate this movie is adding characters (and the way GG's suit is described) my excitement is almost nonexistent for this movie. At least now we're getting rumors that Gwen's death will be a fake out at least. I'd like to see her stick around for a third film.
