Marc Webb’s upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is already in production, but they had room for one more actor.  Chris Cooper has signed on to join the cast as Norman Osborn.  The character made famous by Willem Dafoe in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy.  We already have confirmed villains in Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Paul Giamatti’s The Rhino for this sequel, with Felicity Jones also playing a mysterious character.  Some are theorizing that Webb is creating his own Spidey mini-universe with this bounty of characters, and I wouldn’t necessarily disagree.

It’s yet to be seen if Harry Osborne (Dane DeHaan) or Norman Osborn will take a villainous turn in this film, or if they’re part of a larger story, told over the course of the series.  Heat Vision is reporting that Cooper will take on the role of The Green Goblin in this film or it’s sequel, but it hasn’t been confirmed yet.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.
