Electro (Jamie Foxx) has been cast in the new Amazing Spider-Man sequel. The Rhino (Paul Giamatti?) may be making an appearance as well. Now Norman Osborn has been cast. Here is the official word from The Hollywood Reporter:

“Oscar winner Chris Cooper has signed on to play Norman Osborn in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for Columbia Pictures”.

Chris Cooper is an Academy Award winner (Adaptation) and was recently seen in The Muppets. The big question is, will Cooper become the Green Goblin Amazing 2 or will it be in the third installment? Better yet, will he have the cornrows?

The screenplay for Amazing Spider-Man 2 is by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt. The film will be produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 returns May 2, 2014.
