Chris Cooper has come on board to play Norman Osborn, played in the Sam Raimi films by Willem Dafoe. We don’t know if Cooper will end up in the suit as the Goblin — if he does, expect it to be a small appearance in this sequel — and if he does, what that will mean for the villain landscape of the third film.

Take this with a good degree of caution, but Ultimate Spider-Man trainspotters may enjoy the speculation, at least.
As director Marc Webb has been posting photos from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, he has hinted at something unexpected. His last photo showed what could be a morgue locker, or some much more compact storage unit, along with a “happy birthday” tag.

With director Marc Webb now a few days into production on 2014′s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it should come as no surprise that Sony has released an official plot synopsis. What does come as a surprise is how many questions this thing leaves unanswered. It mentions a few narrative connections from the first film, but while Paul Giamatti is listed as a cast member, it doesn’t explain how The Rhino plays into what sounds like another teen angst story. We’d heard Felicity Jones was in talks, but she’s no where to be found. Same goes for Martin Sheen. Yet Thor‘s Colm Feore is a new addition. Who does he play?
The synopsis also confirms the film will be released in 3D, even though Webb is apparently shooting 35mm anamorphic. Can you say post-conversion? Read it all below. Read More »

Whatever you thought of The Amazing Spider-Man, it couldn’t be denied that Marc Webb had put together an amazing cast. But at the rate the sequel is snapping up stars, it could wind up topping even its predecessor on that front.

Meanwhile, Felicity Jones has also begun negotiations for an unspecified role. Should the two close their deals, they’ll be joining returning stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, along with franchise newcomers Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, and Dane DeHaan. More details after the jump.
