He appears to have the upper hand over the Marvel superhero
Spider-Man fans have already caught the first glimpse of Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” but the villain is crystal clear in a new still from the upcoming superhero movie.
The image (above) also suggests the Goblin — a.k.a. Peter Parker’s childhood friend Harry Osborn — is crazy strong, as he appears to easily hold down the web slinger (Andrew Garfield) as they battle on a giant gear mechanism.
DeHaan’s Goblin joins a number of other bad guys lining up to take on New York City’s friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man in Marc Webb‘s sequel to his 2012 blockbuster reboot of the Sony franchise.
Jamie Foxx plays Electro and Paul Giamatti is Rhino, while Chris Cooper plays Norman Osborn — the Harry’s father, who also becomes the Green Goblin in the Marvel comics. It’s not yet clear what role the older Osborn will play in Webb’s update.
“The Amazing Spider-Man” swings into theaters on May 2.
