DeHaan will follow in James Franco’s footsteps (from director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy) by bringing Harry Osborn to life on the big screen. As was mentioned before, DeHaan as Harry could eventually go to become a villain in the Amazing Spider-Man narrative thread (like Franco did in Spider-Man 3). However, that will depend on how exactly Norman Osborn – who has yet to be officially cast – fits into ‘The Untold Story’ of Peter Parker; not to mention, other possible villains who could show up somewhere down the line.Skip to next paragraph

Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx (who stars in Django Unchained this month) is indeed now set as the antagonist Electro in Amazing Spider-Man 2. In fact, for the time being, Electro is the sole villain announced for the followup – though, some twists and surprises could well be in order, given that the revised script draft was penned by geek-favorites Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek) and Jeff Pinkner (Fringe) – who drew from an initial draft written up by Amazing Spider-Man alum James Vanderbilt.
Meanwhile, Shailene Woodley is playing classic red-haired Spider-Man love interest Mary Jane Watson in Amazing Spider-Man 2. However, it’s been speculated that her character will have a limited role in the main proceedings – which continue to deal with Peter’s ongoing journey toward maturity - and that Mary Jane could play a more important role in later installments, once these films move closer and closer to recreating Gwen Stacy’s eventual fate from the comics.
