Hitfix is reporting that Dale DeHaan has officially been cast as Harry Osborn in Amazing Spider-Man 2. The role had been previously played by James Franco in the original film trilogy.
I have to say that at least physically he seem more of a match to the comic book version of the character. Franco was a little bit too suave and put together to play the borderline insane Harry Osborn. With DeHaan, we’ll have no problem seeing that quality of the character.
Also, in the comic books, Mary Jane Watson was the girlfriend of Harry Osborn. It remains to be seen if that connection stays for the sequel.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled to start filming early next year for a May 2, 2014 release date.
