Well I was just searching up Willem Dafoe, and on IMDb.com I found he was listed as Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin for the episode "The Return of the Green Goblin" in the upcoming TV series Ultimate Spider-Man. While going back to the main details page I found that Topher Grace is casted as Eddie Brock (He's already done 4 episodes, so this seems very legit). Could this be legit? I don't know, but take it with a grain of salt, after all it is IMDB.com. So for now it's just a rumor. Although since J.K. Simmons is back as J. Jonah Jameson, I wouldn't be surprise if Dafoe and Grace are involved as well. In fact, I'm very excited to know more about this, but there's no other sources. So what do you think? Let me know in the usual place below!

Dafoe would be awesome! I don't care if Grace returns, but it'd be cool. Hopefully this is true!

It sounds awesome but IMDb is known for its unreliability

its IMDB so people should takes this with pinch of slat really. But Dafoe as Goblin is pretty cool I thought the guy was great as Green Goblin. They have JK Simmons already so its cool if there bringing people that have been involved with the movies.

This is an animated series, right?

Willem Dafoe nailed it as the green goblin and it would be awesome if he was involved in Ultimate Spider-Man. As for Topher, I guess he would be a decent voice fit for Eddie Brock. Then again this is all yet to be true so I'm hoping least Dafoe is in it

They're also saying that the dude who voices Hulk will be in it, as well as Shadowcat, Crimson Dynamo, and Carnage.
I don't trust IMDb, but this is definitely interesting. I'll wait til there's some final confirmation on it, though.

Sweet!!

Grace gets too much crap, he was a good fit for Eddie...he was just a little small, and Venom was the script's fault.

Who is playing Peter Parker?
GreenieGobbie - 6/7/2011, 10:58 AM
@DDub Josh Keaton from The Spectacular Spider-Man (as Spidey), Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (as Ultimate Spider-Man), and Spider-Man: Edge of Time (as Original Spider-Man).

I want someone else to play Spiderman in the TV series.
I want his suit to be like in the first Spiderman movie.
GreenieGobbie - 6/7/2011, 6:50 PM
@xBlaze96x He's the one who played Batman Beyond, right? He's actually a good choice for Ultimate Eddie Brock. Idk, nothing has been confirmed yet.

The imdb page has Josh Keaton listed as Spidey, when in reality Vincent Martella has the role. Also, Willemstad Dafoe is gone.
GreenieGobbie - 6/8/2011, 12:36 AM
@Altair Oh, wow IMDb has that page all screwed up. Members on IMDB should just stop updating random crap on there, and instead wait for solid information to update with, then the site wouldn't get such a bad rep from every body. Willem is still on there though, check out his profile, and it'll show him listed. In fact I made a link of his profile on my article, so click on that instead (it's the one that says "IMDb.com").

NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!! NOT GRACE! ANYBODY BUT GRACE! HE WAS AWEFUL AND SOUNDED NOTHING LIKE VENOM!!!!!

TERRIBLE casting!! :(
Peteyparker - 6/8/2011, 11:39 AM
YES DAFOE IS GREEN GOBLIN!!!!! (and) No Grace is not/never will be/wouldn't even know how to be Venom
GreenieGobbie - 6/8/2011, 12:44 PM
@Whiteharted He's perfect for Ultimate Eddie/Ultimate Venom, not regular Eddie/Venom IMO. Basically that's what they based off the Spider-Man 3's Eddie Brock from was the Ultimate series, so it's perfect casting. Have you ever read Ultimate Spider-Man? Eddie is nothing like his original counterpart.

It says that Josh Keaton and Vincent Martella play Spiderman and J.K Simmons is playing J.J. Yes for Dafoe no for Grace yes for J.K, but they could be really wrong. IMBD is like a wiki about movies, anyone can post anything. The person could've want it to seem like he knew alot about the cast so he filled it in with the cast for the movie
