Harry Osborn Cast in 'The Amazing Spider-Man' Sequel

The cast for the next Spider-Man movie is getting bigger and bigger.

There's been rumblings over actors in the running to play Harry Osborn in the next Spider-Man movie. Director Marc Webb has revealed the actor via his Twitter account.

You're probably familiar with DeHaan from Chronicle and Lincoln. He's joining Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone as well as Shailene Woodley (Mary Jane) and Jamie Foxx (Electro). The movie is currently in pre-production and there hasn't been too much information released, aside from the updates in casting.

As the pieces are starting to fall in place, in terms of the cast of characters, it won't be long until everyone begins speculating on the direction of the sequel. It's already been lightly thrown around that the third movie could head towards the Death of Gwen Stacy storyline. We'll have to wait and see if there's any truth to that comment.

yikes this cast is going down hill

Posted by Onemoreposter

Excellent casting choice. I'm in the minority here, but it's my opinion that Chronicle was the best superhero movie all year.

My one complaint? They're still not doing the hair right. GIVE ME RUFFLES!!!!

Wow you guys are picky as hell. They give you a real close to story film about one of spidey best moment, but you pick out little things and label the movie bad. Original Parker, girlfriend ,story-line for a origin story they did a great job. What more could you guys ask for? I don't know who Jamie foxx is or the person playing Harry is so I guess I'm lucky. No prejudgment .

Why can't they just pretend the Amazing Spider-man never happened?

Because they couldn't pretend that Spider-Man 3 never happened

f#ck that!!!! Shailene Woodley is too adorable to be Mary Jane, MJ is a smoking hot FOX. Not some teeny bobber looking girl, I will be surprised as hell if she pulls off the jaw dropping performance as MJ as they think she will.

I wanna see who will play Norman Osborn. I vote Tommy Lee Jones.... I'm just to much a Iron Patriot Norman Osborn fan. haha

@SoA: I dont want him as electro

Posted by ultimatepunchrod

I really hate the choice for MJ. The Secret Life of the American Teenager is one of the most melodramatic shows I've ever seen. Maybe she'll surprise me, but I can't see how.

The whole movie(s) is/are based on Ultimate U.....15-17 year old Pete,dad scientist,he says early that he is Spiderman to his girlfriend.....probably Osborn will be the monster-Goblin and not the original cause of the whole OsCorp cross-speices thing.....Ultimate man!!

I loved him in Chronicle and I think that he can be a good Harry Osborn.

What is the big deal about Jamie Foxx being Electro, he's a very good actor. How do you give heath ledger a chance but not jamie?

Agreed x10000!!! So ridiculous.

Hmmm, interesting choice I must say! Kinda girly looking though to me for some reason :/

Posted by Zeeguy91

Shailene Woodley???? Are you serious? WTF!!! She is like, the last person I would imagine being Mary Jane. IMO, they have the whole casting situation reversed. I'd much rather have Emma Stone as Mary Jane and Shailene as Gwen.

damnnn i loved chronicle

I'm making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss. This is what I do, cloud68 . com
