‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′: New Green Goblin & Black Cat Rumors Emerge
The level of intrigue surrounding The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is at an all-time high, as fan curiosity has moved on from director Marc Webb’s teaser photos and some revealing set photos released online, to rumors allegedly being leaked out of Sony – particularly where the female cast of the film is concerned.
Today we have some additional “girl talk” surrounding ASM2, as well as some new rumors about how Chris Cooper’s Norman Osborn will fit into the sequel.
We’ll start with ladies first: Debate has raged in the last few days about the additional women that Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) could soon have in his life. We learned that Mary Jane Watson’s (Shailene Woodley) small cameo role had been cut from Amazing Spider-Man 2, with the assumption that Woodley (The Descendants) would be brought back for the already-confirmed Amazing Spider-Man 3. After that, there was some confusion regarding franchise new addition Sarah Gadon (Cosmopolis), whom many fans thought was being positioned as a replacement for Woodley (however, that turned out NOT to be the case).
With MJ gone from ASM2, that left just one potential rival for Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) to compete against: actress Felicity Jones (Like Crazy), who is playing a still-unnamed role that many fans have nonetheless speculated is in fact Spider-Man’s on/off love interest, Felicia Hardy, a.k.a. Black Cat.
In a recent interview with the Telegraph UK, Jones described her Amazing Spider-Man 2 role in a way that has fanboys buzzing:
The other big rumor surrounding ASM2 has been the introduction of the new Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper). Norman Osborn and his mega-corporation Oscorp have been placed at the center of the ASM movie universe – even though the character himself didn’t appear in the first film. With the casting of Cooper (not to mention emerging actor Dane DeHaan being cast as Norman’s son, Harry) it was naturally assumed that Norman Osborn would be a featured player in the sequel’s story – but whether or not Norman’s nefarious alter-ego The Green Goblin would be featured was less certain.
Well, in the last few days some big rumors have been spreading around the Net – rumors which not only detail when/where Green Goblin could be featured in Amazing Spider-Man 2, but also what he will look like, as well as details on how Norman’s tragic transformation will occur. Hmmmmmmmmm
