Well well well, it appears that the folks over at Sony, Marvel or whoever the hell owns this property nowadays, feel as is you haven’t been bombarded by enough marketing and promotional materials already for the upcoming Spider-man-reboot-sequel-retelling, the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2, so they are here to give you even more! I mean we have seen images, posters, trailers, clips, featurettes, finger paintings, Etch A Sketch sketches (close enough Paul… “A” for effort) and just about everything you can think of for all the characters in the new movie. At least this time, they give us something good. Behold, the new Green Goblin!
Just released is a new image of Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin, and if I do say so myself (I do, I do say so) he looks pretty bad ass. And that is coming from me, the guy who pretty much ripped apart the first Amazing Spider-Man, and this whole new trilogy because WHY ARE WE DOING THIS AGAIN ALREADY!!! But I digress…
At least we can say that they finally got the right actor and the right look for the Green Goblin. I think we can all agree that Willem Dafoe is an awesome actor, but come on… you can only do so much when you have to wear THIS ON YOUR FACE!!!
Now don’t get me wrong, just because I think DeHann looks awesome as the Green Goblin and they have done a great job designing the character… That doesn’t mean I’m on board with Amazing Spider-man 2. Not one bit. I think its going to be a convoluted, disjointed mess. Usually you don’t get this mush shit crammed into a movie until the 3rd installment in the series, but this is only number 2! I cant even imagine the mess that is going to be Amazing Spider-Man 3, with all the stuff they will have to shove into that movie to start really setting up their spin off movies, and setting up all those characters! AY DIOS MIO the agony!!!
Anyways, ill try to not get too ahead of myself. For now, lets wait and see what Amazing Spider-Man 2 has to offer, at least so far, we know it has a kick ass looking Green Goblin! The Marc Webb directed Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd, 2014. And Paul and I will be there with bells on… and his Etch A Sketch.
Let us know what you think about the new look in the comments below!
