Chris Cooper Not In AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 But Green Goblin Still Is?

The first official trailer for Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" hits this Thursday and today we get an official synopsis and new cast list. The interesting part about the cast list? Chris Cooper, who was set to play Norman Osborn, is no longer on it.

A brand new image was also released showing the webbed superhero fighting a trio of villains including The Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Electro (Jamie Foxx) and the Green Goblin. We all know in the comics that Harry Osborn, who will be played by Dane DeHaan in the film, becomes the Green Goblin after his father Norman dies. But if Norman isn't in this film does that mean Harry becomes him first? That would certainly not please a lot of fans, to say the least.

Check out the official synopsis below:

"We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp."

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
