Marc Webb's sequel "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is becoming rather epic in terms of its star-studded cast. Amazing actor Chris Cooper, just signed on to play Norman Osborn, who eventually becomes Spider-Man's arch nemesis, The Green Goblin.

The Green Goblin/Norman Osborn was played by Willem Dafoe in Sam Raimi's versions. He did a great job showing the obsession and eventual demise of Norman Osborn, which in result turned him to the dark side with The Green Goblin.

Besides Cooper's acting chops being incredible, what I'm most pleased about with this news is that he is believable as Dane Dehaan's father, who will be portraying Harry Osborn. Both Cooper and Dehaan are great picks for these characters, and our excitement for the film continues to grow.

We anticipate Norman's transformation won't occur until the third film in the franchise, as the main villains of the sequel will be Electro (Jamie Foxx) and The Rhino (Paul Giamatti). And then the eventual progression of his son Harry Obsorn (Dehaan), who later assumes the alter ego of The Green Goblin.
