The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has found its Norman Osborn, in the shape of Mr Chris Cooper...

Currently before the cameras in New York is The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which sees Andrew Garfield reprising his role as the famous webslinger. Marc Webb, who helmed The Amazing Spider-Man, is directing again, and new additions to the cast include Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx and Paul Giamatti.

And now you can add another name to the list too. Chris Cooper (he's the one on the left in that picture up there) is signing up to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and he's going to be taking on the role of Norman Osborn, as portrayed by Willem Dafoe in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. Whether he'll eventually turn into the Green Goblin in future sequels remains to be seen. With a pair of villains at least in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, there doesn't seem to be room for him to do so in this one.
