They have released the first official images of the Green Goblin, while I can say that I like the look of the Green Goblin. You can see how sinister the character is just by looking at him. It is also obvious that he took some form of serum to make him look like this.
The Green Goblin definitely looks different from the way Harry Osborn normally looks. While you can still tell that the Green Goblin and Harry Osborn are same actor, there are a lot of significant physical changes, which includes the loss of the emo hair. I do appreciate all the physical changes they made to Dane DeHaan, so that the Green Goblin looks completely different; the hair, the skin, teeth, and even the nose.
Now that I am done talking about the look of the Goblin, lets talk about how Harry Osborn is the Green Goblin. We all know that Harry takes over the Green Goblin after his father dies. Norman Osborn has to be the Green Goblin first, by the looks of it they are skipping that part entirely, especially based on this picture:
We all know that Green Goblin is the one who pushes Gwen Stacy, thus causing Peter Parker to kill her while he haves her. The Goblin that did that was Norman Osborn, not Harry Osborn. I guess this is not that big of a change but the death of Norman Osborn is what causes Harry Osborn to become the next Green Goblin. I am guessing that Harry is going to become the Green Goblin the same way his dad did and go after Spider-Man for the same reason. I guess we will see how this plays out in 2 months, but I will admit I am not fully happy about Harry being the first Green Goblin.
Sony has released the final Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer.
I don’t know about the rest of you but this makes me even more excited for the movie. I like how we get to see more of Peter and Harry’s friendship. I am really liking Electro and what I have seen of the Green Goblin.
The movie will be in theaters May 2nd, I hope you will check it out with us.
Have you heard the latest Spiderman rumor? Sony is planning to release a new Spiderman movie every year. I know there were already talks of possibly doing four Spiderman movies with Andrew Garfield. Is that what they are talking about?
No, Sony Co-Chairman Amy Pascal has confirmed that they are working on releasing spin-off movies about Venom and the Sinister Six.
I don’t know about the rest of you but I remember Venom from Spiderman 3 (yes, I know we would all like to forget that movie ever existed), well Venom was not well written. Maybe with a new writing team Venom might be done in a better way but I just don’t know how a Venom movie on its own is going to do. Venom is an interesting character since it can exist on anyone, mainly Eddie Brock. I am not sure if it would be a Venom origin story or if it will Venom life after Spiderman kind of thing.
They are also working on developing a Sinister Six movie, which is teased to in the Amazing Spiderman 2 trailers. The Sinister Six consists of; Doctor Octopus, Sandman (another failed character from Spiderman 3), Electro, the Vulture, Mysterio, and Kraven. A movie done from the point of view of the villains would actually be fascinating since that has never been done before. I am not sure how this movie would not include Spiderman in some way because these are known Spiderman villains.
It has already been announced that Alex Katzman who wrote Star Trek will direct Venom. The Cabin in the Wood’s writer/director Drew Goddard will write the Sinister Six movie, he might also direct it.
I am not sure how I feel about this; it really feels like they are trying to compete with Disney. Disney has, been doing a great job of releasing a new Marvel movie every year. I am not sure how well that is going to work, I am just not sure Sony is going to be able to achieve the same success that Disney has had with it. Disney is special; they can do things most other normal pictures houses cannot do. Sony would probably just be better off doing the Spiderman movies and leaving it there.
What do you think, will a Venom and Sinister Six movies succeed or will they fail?
Sony has released a new three minute trailer for The Amazing Spiderman 2 that they are calling Rise of Electro.
The movie will be hitting theater May 2, 2014, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHann, and Sally Field.
Does this make you even more excited for the movie?
