It’s probably not a coincidence that it’s St. Patrick’s Day and we’re getting the best look yet at Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Hey, did you ever notice that Spider-Man has a lot of green foes in the comics? Doc Octopus, The Scorpion, the Green Goblin, The Lizard–all because of Spider-Man having a red and blue outfit, so the green characters could stand out in the artwork during fight scenes. Kind of obvious, when you think about it.
Anyway, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 skips the idea of Norman Osborne as the Green Goblin and goes straight to Harry Osborne getting in the Oscorp outfit. Good for him. We’re still looking forward to seeing if it was a handshake from Electro that frizzed out Harry’s hair and gave him those fanged teeth. Because, to be honest, this Green Goblin is looking more like one of our other favorite St. Patrick’s Day film icons….
