Amazing Spider-Man 2: First Green Goblin Close-Up

The Green Goblin

The first close up image of Dane DeHaan as the fully transformed Green Goblin has arrived (via Entertainment Weekly).

Notice that Harry’s transformation is far from just a psychological one, like the Green Goblin in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” films. This Green Goblin doesn’t just talk to voices in his head and then slap on some tech to go fight Spider-Man. The transformation is a visibly physical one, similar to (though not as extreme as) the Green Goblin from the “Ultimate Spider-Man” comic book series.

The Green Goblin, in the comics, is Spider-Man’s arch nemesis. The identity was originally assumed by Norman Osborn until his death and was later revived by Harry Osborn. In “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” all of the work done at OsCorp is to try to cure a rare disease the Normas Osborn has. When Norman dies, Harry finds out that he has his own genetic challenges to face.

In “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” Peter Parker runs the gauntlet as the mysterious company Oscorp sends up a slew of supervillains against him, impacting on his life.

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” comes to theaters May 2, 2014.
