Green Goblin

If anything, this latest picture of the Green Goblin from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will remind young movie fans that it’s really, really important you brush and floss your teeth everyday.

Yes, that’s Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, a.k.a. the Green Goblin. Unlike his predecessor, Willem Dafoe, DeHaan actually looks like a real goblin. In others words, he looks super creepy.

Final Trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Highlights Harry Osborn, Puns, Possible GF Abuse

Alright, so I half-way made that last one up (but it IS weird that Peter Parker just thinks he can restrain his lady with some webs).

The final trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 dropped today and it’s…pretty much more of the same. Dane DeHaan looks sickly as Harry Osborn. Jamie Foxx still blue himself as Electro. And I can’t quite figure out what exactly the Rhino (Paul Giamatti) is doing there, but I trust that this movie actually has a script that explained that to the actors (who will then relay said information to us, the audience, in-between massive explosions and slo-mo web slinging).

While Webb has directed the first two entries in the now Raimi-less series (and is signed to helm the third), he says he’s formulating an exit strategy from the Peter Parker game. (more…)

This ‘Spidey 2′ Featurette is All About Andrew

It seems that after what has to be like 300 featurettes about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 released so far, we’re just now getting one about the man behind the Spider-Man mask, actor Andrew Garfield. I know there weren’t a lot of fans of the first Amazing Spider-Man here at Nerd Bastards (listen to the podcast if you don’t believe me), but I don’t think one of the problems with the film was Garfield. The featurette does a pretty good job of reminding you why Garfield was a good pick for Peter Parker/Spider-Man and revisits Garfield’s journey from that first announcement of his casting in 2010 through to principal photography on the new sequel.

New ‘Amazing’ Featurette is When Rhino Meets Spidey

They are working overtime to convince us that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is not going to suck, aren’t they? But cynicism aside, this is the third featurette on the upcoming superhero film we’ve gotten and the movie is still three-and-a-months from being released. So what has Marc Webb and company got for us today? A segment called “Lights, Camera, Action!” Does it feature the lighting? No, don’t be silly. Is it about the type of cameras they filmed the movie on? Nope, which means by process of elimination, this one’s all about the action. I mean, “Action!” (more…)
