'Amazing Spider-Man 2': Chris Cooper to Play Green Goblin

From THR:

Chris Cooper has signed on to play Noman Osborn in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for Columbia Pictures.

The character of Osborn is pivotal in the franchise because he is the alter ego of the Green Goblin, which was played by Willem Dafoe in the original Spider-Man movies. It is unclear whether Cooper will make his villainous turn in this film or in a sequel. Osborn starts out as a mentor to the superhero before turning bad. (Chris Cooper, Cinema, The Amazing Spider-Man 2)

I think its worth pointing out this doesn't mean Green Goblin will be in the movie. I noticed a lot of people throwing a fit "wah why are they remaking the second movie." He is simply Osbourne right now, and he has a lot to develop as that character before actually turning "evil."

Also people need to realize Green Goblin used to be Spider-Man's Joker. They are arch enemies and until they started using Green Goblin as a bigger Marvel universe villain, he was in a lot of stories. Lately its been twisted to Doc Ock because other characters like Daredevil have taken Green Goblin away.

SPOILER (he has appeared again in Superior Spider-Man, which is awesome)

So there's going to be three villains now? Rhino, Electro and Goblin?

How can they fit them all in without it failing miserably like Spider-man 3?

I think TAS2 will only feature 1 main villain, but it will reveal a couple more. But they probably won't play a huge role in the movie until the sequels. T

by making it better, smarter and just pay more attention to something that can actually work..you know if done right?

don't be so close minded.

i think he wont turn into goblin until the next installment, jamie foxx and paul giamatti will be the main villains as electro and rhino respectively and that should be enough because they might do a spiderman 3 overloaded cast all over again. with all the characters included in this sequel i hope the movie would run for 2 1/2 hours to give significance to all characters especially for introducing norman osborne and mary jane in the series.
