While it is surprising that another villain would be added to the cast of the film (which already includes Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giammatti as The Rhino), the character's company, Oscorp, was heavily featured in the first film and appears to continue that trend in the second. The inclusion of Norman Osborn also makes sense given that Chronicle star Dane DeHaan has been cast as his son, Harry Osborn.
It remains to be seen if Cooper will put on the green mask and fight Spider-Man in the film, but check back here for any confirmation on that.
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds, life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can't come quickly enough. Peter hasn't forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen's father to protect her by staying away – but that's a promise he just can't keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
Also starring Martin Sheen, Paul Giammatti, Felicity Jones and Colm Feore, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014.
