Chris Cooper joins ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’ as Norman Osborne
We had a good clue that the Osborne family would feature heavily in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with the addition of ‘Chronicle’ actor Dane DeHaan, but now we have a face for Osborne Sr: Chris Cooper. As we all know, Norman Osborne is the eventual alter ego of supervillain Green Goblin.
While the first ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ film was eager to distance itself, and its cast of characters, from Sam Raimi’s trilogy, we now have a collection of familiar players. In addition to new characters Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Electro (Jamie Foxx), we also have Shailene Woodley as Peter Parker’s other love interest, Mary Jane Watson.
With the cast assembled, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ hits theaters on May 2nd 2014.
