While I’m out on the prowl trying to figure out who got the Rocket Racoon gig on Guardians Of The Galaxy, this Marvel news drops.
According to THR, Chris Cooper has signed on to play Norman Osborn aka The Green Goblin in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for Columbia Pictures. Cooper joins a cast that is already rocking Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giammatti as The Rhino. That is quite a bad guy club. Spidey is going to have his hands full with that trio.
Although, I personally haven’t seen the first The Amazing Spider-Man, from what I understand, Harry Osborn’s company Oscorp was heavily featured in the first film.
I think a real solid choice. Cooper adds serious value to anything he does. Loved him in the first Bourne movie.
Synopsis for those not in the know:
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds, life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 drops in theaters on May 2, 2014.
