This close-up of Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 might be confusing

Dec. 2, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Remember that poster for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 that we showed you over the weekend? If you missed it, click the above link then come play catch-up with us.

Okay, now that we are all on the same page, it seems that someone on Twitter going by the name "Tupacca" snapped a picture giving us a closer look at Green Goblin. Verdict? In my opinion, I'm a little confused with this. I think we can safely eliminate Norman Osborne (Chris Cooper) as the one wearing the costume this time around. Cooper has a very distinct face. When I first saw it, I thought I was looking at Willem Dafoe. My fellow editor Paul Shirey said it looked like Jack Frost. Some of my friends said Billy Idol. We probably shouldn't talk to Billy Idol that way... At any rate, this photo is not doing the character any favors. When I compared a pic of Dane Dehaan who plays Harry Osborne to this one of Goblin, I could see his face better.

How do you feel about this look?

So they are going for the Goblin Jr. look from SM3??

What happened to this series doing its own thing? Now they are bringing back power ranger suits for green goblin, turning Rhino into a transformer and making Electro look horrible in every CGI shot.

I second that, It does look like Garfield.

As long as he has elongated facial features and a glider, it is true enough to form. The mask in the first was just stupid, Willem Dafoe's face alone looked enough like a goblin, which is why I feel he was cast, but then the mask just totally trumped that card. Just look at Dafoe in Shadow of The Vampire, he looks pretty Goblin esque there, plus, Dane Dehan does look a little Goblin-y as well.

To me it actually looks a little like Andrew Garfield. Maybe its from a dream sequence or something. Hell, this could even be a stunt man doubling for Cooper, who's face will be added later in CGI, who knows.

OMG I never really had any expectations or wants to see this movie, but man now with the transformer Rhino and this Billy Idol Goblin, I may have to see this (for free) just to get a laugh, maybe turn it into a drinking game movie.

I'm more concerned they're cramming too much villains in one movie again.

Maybe we'll finally get the Tom Woodruff design when they inevitably reboot the series again in twelve years.

Just a guess...

Im going to guess that the Goblin you see here will not be the final incantation that we are going to end up seeing by the end of either this film or the next. My guess is that eventually we are going to see the more demon like Goblin a la the Ultimate line of comics...I hope.

He is going to own this role

He will bring a darkness to it that Franco couldn't bring. I think this Goblin is going to be more creepy and instill fear into us as an audience.

I kind of like the goblin-esque facial features but once again, they've gone with that "tactical armour" look that doesn't borrow nearly enough from how the character appears in the comics.

No matter who it looks like, I don't think it bodes well for my opinion of this film so far. I'm eager to be proven wrong but I'm not going to bet on that happening based on what I've seen so far. Let's see what the trailer has in store...

At least it differentiates itself from the original trilogy; which is what this NEW REBOOTED franchise should do. Make it's OWN name for itself.

Yeah. The first film of this reboot was terrible and now this new Goblin looks horrible. What are they thinking.

Again, Webb will never do anything better than what Raimi accomplished with his own trilogy.

At least he looks like a Goblin

So there will be a Green Goblin in this film? And from that blurry photo, I like the look they've gone with. I wonder if this means Norman will be the Hobgoblin instead? Can't have two Green Goblins in the Sinister Six.

No awful metal helmet, good. No reptilian skin and bulging yellow eyes? Bloody lame. He better at the very least be green or they might as well call that thing the White Goblin.

Spoiler Alert! cIX^{D~
Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man turns bad cause and effect having him become The Goblin forcing Tobey Maguire to reprise his role as the web head and save the day and the big apple all together.

Good idea, coworker, that may be what they did. And hopefully you are right.
