There’s more on the casting front from the sequel of The Amazing Spider-Man. Joining Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone is Dane DeHaan, who will portray Peter Parker’s best friend, Harry Osborn. DeHaan is best known for his role as Andrew in the surprisingly good movie, Chronicle.
DeHaan was a brilliant choice for Harry. He’s proven with Chronicle that he can play a character who becomes driven by power and falls from grace. I’m excited to see how his Harry will interact with Peter in the new Spider-Man film.
Now I’m curious if Norman Osborn, Harry’s father, will join the cast of characters too. He’s a very important piece in the Spider-Man story, and an influence on his son and his friendship with Peter Parker.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into theaters May 2, 2014.
