Chris Cooper Is Your New Green Goblin

“Why won’t you kiss me, Kevin Spacey?!”

Earlier in the week, I linked to a CBR report that assumed Colm Feore would be playing Norman Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Except it turns out it’s actually going to be Chris Cooper who I’ll just assume sealed the deal with his Tex Richman rap. “My client will do anything for money,” his agent started the meeting with. THR reports:

The character of Osborn is pivotal in the franchise because he is the alter ego of the Green Goblin, which was played by Willem Dafoe in the original Spider-Man trilogy. It is unclear whether Cooper will make his villainous turn in this film or in a sequel. Osborn starts out as a mentor to the superhero before turning bad.

Considering these films are pulling heavily from Brian Michael Bendis’ Ultimate run, Chris Cooper’s Green Goblin will probably be less like Willem Dafoe’s shitty Power Rangers villian and more like the fiery, mutated version (above) even though I have absolutely no clue what those words me, horrified post-birthday hooker who just read over my shoulder. I’ll pay you double. Triple! Please don’t leave- KHAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNN.
