This Is What the Green Goblin in 2002’s Spider-Man Almost Looked Like [Video]

Who He Is and How He Came to Be

Before Sam Raimi settled on a shiny protective mask for his Green Goblin (played by Willem Dafoe), he tested out what is admittedly some pretty sick makeup that would have rendered Gobbie as more of a creature than a superhuman madman nemesis for his first Spider-Man movie. And for the first time, we are finally seeing what could have been. This video was released by the effects shop behind the creation, Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. (who also recently released a video showing their creature work on The Thing). You can hear Raimi directing the test subject (who does not seem to be Dafoe) in the latter half of the video, trying to see the range of expressions allowed by the prosthetics.
