Although filming has already begun, news about the casting crew keep on coming. The latest name to be added to the mix is Chris Cooper (The Town). He will play Norman Osborn, a character previously portrayed by Willem Dafoe.

Dafoe has always been very convincing as a villain. Cooper has also played bad guy roles many times, some might even say for the bigger part of his career. But an evil mastermind of this level? I guess we'll find out.

Norman Osborn is the third antagonist in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The other two are Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti).

Keep in mind that Norman Osborn becomes the villain Green Goblin in the comic book story. That begs the question: Are we going to see the Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2?

Stay tuned for more Spider-Man news!
