The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Casts Its Norman Osborn

My Spidey Sense Is Tingling

…and it’s Chris Cooper, who so memorably rapped about being super rich in The Muppets. I mean, don’t get me wrong, he’s done other great stuff, too. Capote, The Town, American Beauty. He even won an Oscar for Adaptation! He’s great. But I always prefer to go for the Muppets reference if I can. Maniacal laugh, maniacal laugh…

Norman Osborn was mentioned in The Amazing Spider-Man, though that, like so much else of the movie, slid through my mental sieve like Sandman through… a sewer grate…? Oh, just go with it. Apparently in the TASM-verse he’s on the brink of death and searching for a cure. A cure that will possibly leave him feeling a little… green? Dun dun DUNNNNN.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, it’s unknown whether Osborn will make the transition to Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or if that will have to wait until the third movie. But seeing as how TASM 2 already has two villains—Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti as Electro and the Rhino, respectively—I’d say it’s a good bet that director Marc Webb and co. will hold off on Osborn’s villainification until the third movie (or the very end of the second, post-credits style).

Those of you looking forward to The Amazing Spider-Man 2—do you see this as good news? Those of you who don’t give a thwip–does this bit o’ casting news pique your interest at all? Lay it on me.
