The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Gets New Harry Osborn

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director, Marc Webb has announced via tweet that he has cast the wall-crawling sequel's new Harry Osborn: Dane DeHaan.

Absent from the first film, the character of Harry Osborn, previously played by James Franco in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, is Peter Parker's best friend. Unfortunately, beneath his happy extroverted surface, lies a tortured young man who is barely clinging to life in the shadow of his renowned industrialist father, Norman Osborn. (Who will be the alter-ego of the glider-gallivanting, pumpkin-bomb-popping Green Goblin at some point.)

The 25 year-old DeHaan is best known for this year's faux-vérité "kids with super-powers" film, Chronicle, as well as roles on HBO TV series such as True Blood and In Treatment.

Now, he fills a critical role in the new Spider-Man mythos as the wayward buddy of Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker; a character whose life consists of conflicts of interest and, in a famously controversial Comics Code-defying moment in history, a drug habit.

Could this mean that the ominous Norman Osborn, who is only mentioned in The Amazing Spider-Man will finally surface in the sequel? We'll find out when it sticks to theater walls on May 2, 2014.
