Check this out – we’ve just learned that Dane DeHaan (probably best known from Chronicle) is definitely set to play Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And you have nothing to worry about, this is not a rumor, the whole thing comes straight from director Marc Webb who revealed the news on his Twitter!
So, now we can say that the cast of the sequel looks promising: DeHaan will join Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley and (probably) Jamie Foxx.
As we previously reported Woodley comes on board to play Mary Jane Watson, and as for Foxx – well, there’s still nothing official, but we already had a chance to hear that he’ll play the central villain Electro.
As for DeHaan and his involvement in the sequel, the only thing I can say at this moment is that he’s quite interesting choice for the role of Harry.
The son of the ruthless industrialist, Norman Osborn, founder of Osborn Industries and Oscorp, Harry lost his mother, Emily, before he turned one year old. In the comics he was a close friend and classmate to Peter Parker, but later became a villain, taking up the Goblin mantle.
Anyway, Webb will direct the sequel from a script written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt, and production will begin in early 2013 in New York.
In case you already forgot, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to open on May 2nd, 2014.
