Big Reveals in the new Amazing Spiderman 2 poster
These days in Hollywood, secrets revolving around movies are commonplace. When and if those secrets are revealed are up to the studio and trying to spoil those secrets has become very hard. In the 1990's, as the internet bubble was popping, there were several websites which cracked Hollywood codes and spread rumors and leaks all over the internet. Nowadays, getting a leak on an upcoming movie is very hard to do, and like I said its solely up to the studio as to whether or not that information is shared. Sometimes, it makes or breaks a movie. Last summer, everybody wanted to know who Benedict Cumberbatch was playing in "Star Trek Into Darkness" and the mystery around his character certainly played into their marketing campaign. Well, lets not modest...it was their marketing campaign. When the film was released and we all found who he was, I wonder if all the mystery was worth the obfuscation.
We have known for quite sometime now that both Norman Osborn and his son Harry Osborn will be involved in "The Amazing Spiderman 2." Norman Osborn was name-dropped quite a bit in the first film and it has been announced that Chris Cooper will play Norman and Dane DeHaan will play Harry in the upcoming sequel. (Willem Dafoe played Norman and James Franco played Harry in the first franchise.) However, we never knew if we'd see Norman become the Green Goblin, or what was going to happen with Harry. I thought we all wouldn't find out until the movie hit in May 2014, but I was proven wrong tonight.
A new poster for the upcoming sequel hit in Las Vegas today and it gives away a big, old, whopping spoiler. Front and freaking center!
Here's The Poster:
Seeing anything unusual? The Rhino..check. Electro..check. Wait whose that in the sky?
There's the Green Goblin, in all of his glory...oh and his glider!
So its pretty clear that The Green Goblin will definitely show up in "The Amazing Spiderman 2" but I wonder who will play him. Some people can't picture Chris Cooper on a glider in goblin make-up, at the same time, I can't imagine anybody else taking up the goblin mantle besides Norman. How Harry will fit into the overall scheme of things will be fun to see. With all of this said, I am a little nervous if this film is trying to pack a little too much in one film, especially since we have two more sequels on the way in the future.
No matter what, our questions will be answered on May 2nd, 2014 when the film is released.
