Sony and Marc Webb are continuing to recast the entire Spider-Man universe this week as they have finally settled on a new actor to play Peter Parker's best bud Harry Osborn. Webb himself sent out a tweet yesterday announcing that the role will be filled by Chronicle star Dane DeHaan, one of several young actors that had been under consideration for the part. Back in October we learned that Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) had been chosen as the new Mary Jane Watson, while Jamie Foxx appears to have locked down the role of the main villain, Electro. No word yet on whether or not Norman Osborn will be in the film or if Spidey will eventually face The Green Goblin, but it seems that for the time being, they're trying to avoid repeat villains. In a way, it's a bit surprising to hear that they have chosen Dane DeHaan for the role of Harry Osborn. »
