The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb has officially announced that Chronicle star Dane Dehaan is officially set to play Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This is the guy I was hoping would get the part, so it's awesome to see that he landed it! This character was previously played by James Franco in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films. Here's the tweet that was sent out by Webb:
It was previously reported that this time around they were looking for actors that fit a dark and edgy description, and DeHaan easily fits that. I thought he was great in Chronicle, and I'm sure he'll be awesome in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He'll be able to pull off a likeable villain. It will be fun seeing him act alongside Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in the film. I hate when good guys go bad, but as you know that's exactly what's going to happen with Harry Osborn.
The film will also feature Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, and Jamie Foxx as the villain Electro. The movie is set for release on May 2nd, 2014.
What do you think about DeHaan being cast as Harry Osborn in the movie?
