Is Dane DeHaan Playing Green Goblin In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2?

This could be something, could be nothing. The actor doesn't say too much about his role as Harry Osborn in the sequel, but someone else might just have dropped a major spoiler about his character for him! Read on to see what you make of it..

Hitfix caught up with Chronicle actor Dane DeHann (who will play Harry Osborn in Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man sequel) at the premiere of his new movie, Kill Your Darlings. The video above doesn't reveal much: DeHann would seem to confirm that we can expect some type of love triangle in the movie but even that's a little sketchy, and it's to be expected anyway. The interesting stuff isn't recorded, but Hitfix report that afterwards Kill Your Darlings director John Krokidas introduced DeHann by saying "he's the Green Goblin". Apparently DeHann just smiled, but it didn't appear as if Krokidas was joking. Is it possible that Webb will make Harry the original Green Goblin, bypassing his father Norman? Obviously in the comics the character does eventually go bad and "Goblin up", but I think most people expected Harry to play more of a heroic role in this movie - as James Franco did in Sam Raimi's original Spider-Man - with Jaime Foxx's Electro on villain duties. Like I said, might be something, might be nothing, but it's worth the speculation!

uh......... did that just daniel radcliffe as his name on the banner?
RobertDanger - 1/18/2013, 8:01 PM
"Daniel Radcliffe"
I think some caption writer just lost their job.
Jollem - 1/18/2013, 8:01 PM
daniel radcliffe in spider-man2? i'm so confused
JDUKE25 - 1/18/2013, 8:01 PM
LMAO no.....Harry is not going to be the Goblin before Norman
SonGoku - 1/18/2013, 8:02 PM
Maybe they'll do something similar to when Norman framed Harry in the Spectacular Spider-man. That would actually be pretty cool in my opinion.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 8:03 PM
If Goblin is in, I watch...

If just Electro, [frick] it. The Lizard is a shit villain, Electro is a shit villain.

Haha that caption made me so confused. Looking at the caption. Looking at his face. Looking at "Daniel Radcliffe" looking at his face again and then down to Harry Potter and spider man 2 ???? wtf is this
siggisuperman - 1/18/2013, 8:05 PM
lol it says Harry Osborn.
alamborn19 - 1/18/2013, 8:06 PM
Leave goblin for 3 or have Norman be bad first and Harry taking blame duuh follow the comics
Luigi - 1/18/2013, 8:06 PM
I'm surprised they got the "Harry Osborn" part right in the caption
Luigi - 1/18/2013, 8:08 PM
I'll probably be alone but I think it'd be kind of cool if James Franco played Norman in this series.

"Worth the speculation." Actually, I don't think it is.

Daniel Radcliffe Spider-Man 2

That would be bad ass if he became Goblin. I think they are setting up for the Sinister Six

My two favorite Spidey villains are the vulture and scorpion...When are we gonna see them already!?
Brokensteel1228 - 1/18/2013, 8:15 PM
I Loved ASM, but if they do
AmazingFantasy - 1/18/2013, 8:22 PM
It's a rumor, and besides it could be like TSSM?
ForeverPowerful - 1/18/2013, 8:24 PM
I could maybe see this working out. Maybe Norman experiments with his own son to see what would happen and he becomes the goblin. Then seeing the power his son has, he becomes the Goblin. That could show how sick and twisted Norman is.

But it probably wont. And Im guessing it was nothing. Norman as Goblin? Sure. Harry as Goblin? Too soon for my tastes.
thewolfx - 1/18/2013, 8:25 PM
This is probly true , seeing as marc webb seems to mainly care about his spiderman .. Damn the books :-\
webslinger2099 - 1/18/2013, 8:27 PM
what, thats crazy, they need norman before harry, and besides its cross speices version of spiderman and Norman Might Be Mutated Goblin. i dont think harry was mutated
JorLBola - 1/18/2013, 9:02 PM
Does that mean that Harry Osborn will be the Green Goblin?!! Damn....
Bigred20 - 1/18/2013, 9:03 PM
i dont think a 17 year old harry could be the green goblin yet
LFANCH - 1/18/2013, 9:27 PM
I'm hoping that the guy that said it just heard that he was playing "osborn" and related that name to goblin without knowing about harry.
BraxtonHicks - 1/18/2013, 9:29 PM
Great: we might have a new goblin problem... Lets hope they misdirect us like TSSM did, and I do suspect a sinister six set up, let's hope they don't waste 5 movies trying to set it up.
StormLoganSummers - 1/18/2013, 9:29 PM
It won't happen. And Harry was never the Green Goblin in TSSM; it turned out to be Norman all along.
DoodPool - 1/18/2013, 9:39 PM
wtf daniel radcliff
DrHorrible - 1/18/2013, 9:41 PM
I'm thinking that if the rumor IS true, it'll be Norman making it look like Harry is the Goblin so that he can lead Peter off of his trail, a la Spectacular Spider-Man.

Just my two cents.
BIGBMH - 1/18/2013, 9:49 PM
@TheSensationalSpiderMan, I thought that storyline was pretty brilliant.

Que Rors whining....
WingDingaLing - 1/18/2013, 10:46 PM
No.. I'm pretty sure Harry will be involved somehow with Gobby considering he's his son. I'm pretty sure Kyle Massee is already playing Norman/Green Goblin. Although Dane and Kyle do look a lot alike. I can definitely see father and son between them!
OptimusPrimeTime - 1/18/2013, 10:47 PM
No, No, No, No, [frick]ing NO!!

This is silly guys, this would be like Bane's gas not ACTUALLY being Venom, or like Sentinel Prime being a villain...

Be for real...this would never hap.....

Wait what?
OptimusPrimeTime - 1/18/2013, 10:48 PM
They need to start handing out condoms at script readings....

...that way at least when the directors rape the source material, it's protected for partners later on.
Jer3miah - 1/18/2013, 10:58 PM
Obviously, its a joke or a reference to the future. It would make no sense to skip Norman if he's already an integral part of the franchise.
FirstAvenger - 1/18/2013, 11:11 PM
Rumors can't believe them.
CaptainAmerica31 - 1/18/2013, 11:50 PM
Wouldn't mind too much, it was in spectacular spiderman anyways
devil - 1/18/2013, 11:59 PM
who gith a shit about the new spiderman movies
mgeoff88 - 1/19/2013, 1:11 AM
I think Dane DeHaan is the perfect choice for Harry Osborn in the new movies.

I highly doubt he'll become the Green Goblin in TASM2. I think the director of his other movie was just joking around.

He probably will become the second Green Goblin later in the series though. It doesn't make any sense for Harry to become him, before Norman does. His father is dying, and I'm assuming when Norman gives himself treatments to save his life, he ends up becoming the Green Goblin.
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/19/2013, 1:38 AM
Bad rumor. If you can say that a rumor. Obviously bullshit.

Norman definitely needs to be GG first. But howabout we forget GG for a moment and save him later.

I would love to see Hobgoblin, Electro, Morbius or Carnage causing trouble for Osborn´s company.
