The cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 continues to grow! According to The Hollywood Reporter, we'll see Norman Osborn in the webhead's sequel and he'll be played by Chris Cooper (American Beauty, The Muppets).
As you might recall, Norman Osborn is dying in the first film and he's desperately searching for a cure. Whether or not said "cure" will turn him into the Green Goblin in this movie has yet to be confirmed. The website says, "It is unclear whether Cooper will make his villainous turn in this film or in a sequel. Osborn starts out as a mentor to the superhero before turning bad."
Personally, I was rooting for Tommy Lee Jones. Viners, do you think Cooper's a good choice for the classic villain? I really hope his transformation is saved for the third film because this one is already packed with characters (Rhino, Electro, MJ, Harry!).
The Amazing Spider-Man is scheduled to come out May 2, 2014.
