I was excited at the casting of Chris Cooper, one of my favorite actors, in the role of Norman Osborne for the Amazing Spider-Man franchise. From what I can tell though, we will have to wait until at least the third installment before he undergoes the transformation into The Green Goblin. They do seem to have Harry Osborne showing up as some sort of proto-Goblin character, but the few images that have been released make him look pretty ridiculous. WIllbem Dafoe and James Franco were fine as the Osbornes, but their costumes never looked right either. Spider-Man's arch-foe shouldn't be so hard to translate to the big screen, and I wonder why the filmmakers always seem to have such trouble.
