Chris Cooper takes over the role of Norman Osborn in the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” and has already confirmed that he is coming back for the third film in the series.
Whilst speaking with MTV today, Cooper confirmed that his appearance in the upcoming first sequel is really just an introduction to something far more significant:
“Amazing Spider-Man 2 was an introduction to Norman, and – you’ll see – an extremely odd introduction, which apparently will lead to something more.”
Cooper was then asked what he knew about the Sinister Six and the potential future of the franchise. He responded that he was “vaguely” aware of the direction the franchise will take. He added:
“They sent me some material. But they said also that this Spider-Man is its own Spider-Man. We’re just kind of starting from the beginning.”
Previously actor Paul Giamatti, who plays Rhino in the upcoming sequel, said “there’s a lot of stage-setting for the next film. There are several villains in this movie, and some of them are more foreground and important. Jamie Foxx is and stuff. A couple of us are more hanging around the background because I think there will be a bigger deal.”
