Though we never actually met him in Amazing Spider-Man, the specter of Norman Osborn hung all over that movie. Weâll finally get to meet the mystery man in part two, but the actor bringing him to life says you may be surprised by what you see.
Chris Cooper (The Bourne Identity) had a sit-down with MTV to talk about his role in the new Spider-Man franchise, and teased that fans should be prepared for something a little different than the version of OsbornÂ played by Willem DafoeÂ in Sam Raimiâs Spider-Man franchise.
Cooper said that the first time we see the future Green Goblin will make for âan extremely odd introduction,â and that that encounter âapparently will lead to something moreâ in at least one of those many sequels already in the works.
He was also asked about persistent rumors that Spideyâs rogues gallery will combine into the Sinister Six at some point, and Cooper confirmed that the studio has âsent [him] some materialsâ to that effect. But he cautioned they seem to be âstarting from the beginningâ with part two here.
He went on to talk about how there are a boatload of villains crammed into the film, though many wonât come into play until future sequels:
âAnd I believe there's a lot of stage-setting for the next film. There are several villains in this movie, and some of them are more foreground and important. Jamie Foxx is and stuff. A couple of us are more hanging around the background because I think there will be a bigger deal. I don't actually know, but that seems to be what they're doing. I'm not an idiot either, but I can't claim hard and fast knowledge of this. I won't. I can't because I don't actually know, but you and I can speculate.â
