Yes it's true! After having to keep it a secret from you all for so long... I've been cast as Norman Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Ok it's not me. But the good news is that Oscar winner Chris Cooper (American Beauty, Adaptation) has been cast in the role instead. Cooper is another impressive addition to the cast for this sequel, and joins the ever swelling ranks of quality actors joining a superhero franchise alongside Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained), Paul Giamatti (Sideways), and returning stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.

No news yet as to whether or not Cooper will suiting up as the Green Goblin in this entry. With Electro (Foxx), Rhino (Giamatti) and Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) already being introduced, as well as Mary Jane Watson (Shailene Woodley), it's looking mighty busy already.

Spidey is set to swing back onto our screens on May 2nd 2014. »
