The Green Goblin gets a whole new look in the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”. Gone is the Power Rangers-esque colorful armor of the Sam Raimi-directed 2002 film, instead it has been replaced by a more organic Jekyll and Hyde-style deal.
Out doing promotional rounds for the film, actor Dane DeHaan talked with MTV about the design of the character:
“We went through a couple incarnations of it and ultimately tried to make it more and more organic and more real and made sure it tied in with Harry’s storyline. There is still a lot of Harry in the Goblin, and we wanted to honor what the Goblin’s always looked like. But we knew I couldn’t be walking around in a purple skirt and tank top and a skull cap.”
DeHaan insists the make-up and costume guys tried their best to incorporate elements of the comic book character:
“We went to great lengths to make sure we honored it, and those shapes are still there. The hair is still in the same shape that the cap is in. The smile. The ear tech represents the ears. It was a process, but I’m really happy with what we came up with.”
Will his Goblin appear in the “Sinister Six” film?
“I don’t know, you know, I hope so. There’s six slots. I don’t know, I don’t know anything. I have no idea. I’m just happy to be here.”
