For a long time, the word on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was that it would pit Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker against Jamie Foxx’s Electro. But over the last few months, Sony has carefully shown its hand, revealing that Electro’s not the only bad guy tormenting the wondrous wall-crawler. In fact, as EW’s Sara Vilkomerson reveals in this week’s cover story, Amazing 2 was conceived as the franchise’s expansion point, bringing in a whole host of characters and world-buildy concepts with an eye toward future films. And surely no character will resonate more with anyone aware of Spidey history than Harry Osborn — who, as played by Dane DeHaan, will become Spider Enemy Number One, the nefarious Green Goblin.
Now, EW is excited to share with you the first close-up picture of Amazing‘s Green Goblin, which takes the character in a decidedly different aesthetic direction than the original trilogy. For one thing, this Goblin doesn’t just wear green. That’s his skin, breaking out in what looks like the nastiest case of Goblin-itis this side of Middle-Earth.
