Quickie: Dane DeHaan cast as Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Dane DeHaan has been cast as Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The character was famously played by James Franco in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy. In the comics, Osborn is Peter Parker's best friend, and confidant. But in various iterations, Osborn take's over his father's mantel as the Green Goblin, Spider-Man's arch enemy.
I loved DeHaan in Chronicle, and I think he'll do terrific in this. He has a way of acting with his eyes that will keep the audience guessing where the character's true alliance lies. Director, Marc Webb is piecing together a nice cast. Andrew Garfield Spider-Man, Jamie Foxx is about to sign as the villain Electro, Emma Stone will be back as Gwen Stacey, and Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson. DeHaan's casting is a very welcomed one!
