Dane DeHaan tipped for coveted Spider-Man 2 role

Nov 16 2012, 4:03am CST | by

Little-known actor Dane DeHaan has been shortlisted to play Peter Parker's troubled best friend Harry Osbourn in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'.

Dane DeHaan is in line to play Harry Osbourn in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'.
The 'Chronicle' star has been shortlisted to play Peter Parker's troubled best friend and looks likely to join Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield in Marc Webb's sequel to this year's superhero smash hit.
Producers at Sony Pictures are searching for a ''dark and edgy'' young actor to match James Franco's chilling performance as Harry in Sam Raimi's triology, which was fronted by Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst.
The character is Peter's close friend and the son of Green Goblin alter-ego Norman Osborn, who eventually becomes his enemy.
The part of Harry was originally written for a big, athletic actor, but is now being reworked into something less predictable and much darker, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Other contenders for the coveted role include 'Supernatural' star Alden Ehrenreich and 'Melancholia''s Brady Corbet.
Leading man Andrew recently revealed the sequel was due to start filming in 2013 and he can't wait to reprise his role as the crime-fighting hero, especially since the iconic spider suit is being redesigned for his personal comfort.
He explained: ''It is a responsibility to play that role, and I don't take it lightly. I think there's so much to explore with that mythology and within the tension between living a double life, struggling with being good, struggling with choosing good behaviour over bad behaviour, with the pressures of a city on your shoulders.
''The suit is undergoing a redesign because I couldn't urinate [when I had it on] last time. So I'm less nervous because that's gonna be nice.''

New on DVD/Blu-ray: It's a Great Week to Like Genre Movies

Aug 20 2014 5:32pm CDT | Source: movies.com

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Sony - Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Marc Webb Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper. Full cast + crew The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is certainly the biggest punching bag of this year's superhero movies. It's silly, it's simple and it's glossy. And while I'd never argue that it's better than Captain America 2 or even X-Men: Days of Future Past, it's an acceptable, occa ...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 DVD Review: Triple the Villainy

Aug 19 2014 5:20pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sold itself on saying that our hero was facing his “greatest battle.” And that could not have been truer in that Andrew Garfield returns to the Spidey suit and fights off a trio of villains, The Green Goblin, Electro and The Rhino. As The Amazing Spider-Man 2 makes its way onto DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download, it’s an opportunity to witness some of those explosive action seq ...

Life After Beth Review

Aug 14 2014 6:00pm CDT | Source: ign

As a suburban sweetheart come back from the dead, actress Aubrey Plaza glows with life. Oft-employed for her monotone mockery (popularized on the acclaimed sitcom Parks & Recreation), Plaza throws herself into Life After Beth's low-key zom-com antics, cranking up the smiles, sex drive, and snarling that rejuvenates her possibilities as a performer. Her derangement is pure. When Plaza's title character, teetering on the edge of full-blown Walking Dead, spot ...

We have already seen one bonus feature from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 DVD that is downright mind-blowing. That’s right, we’re talking about the Peter meets his father deleted scene.

Aug 4 2014 3:21pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

As Sony readies to release The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on DVD, they have news that they have green lit a female-led spin-off of the webbed wonder franchise.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Deleted Scene: Peter Meets His Father!

Aug 4 2014 10:39am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

One of the features that immediately shot to the must-see list when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 DVD was announced, was a deleted scene simply called Peter Meets His Father. At the time, we were stunned at 1) Why that scene would be cut and 2) What purpose that would serve, given what we saw in the whole that is The Amazing Spider-Man 2? As The Amazing Spider-Man 2 DVD and Blu-Ray lands August 18, and we have that deleted scene now… and spoilers abound -- so be warned! ...
