Last month it was revealed that Chronicle star Dane DeHaan was under consideration for Harry Osborn in the The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and while it was subsequently reported that Sony had decided to test "more athletic and good looking" actors, director Marc Webb has confirmed that DeHaan has indeed secured the role, having fought off competition from Douglas Booth (Noah), Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman), Brady Corbet (Melancholia), Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures), Boyd Holbrook (Hatfields & McCoys) and Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables).
DeHaan, whose other screen credits include In Treatment, True Blood, Lawless and Lincoln, joins the returning Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker / Spider-Man) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) in the cast of the upcoming sequel, while Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) will portray Mary Jane Watson and Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) will star as the film's villain, Electro.
