Amazing Spider-Man 2 Looking For Its Harry Osbourne


The Amazing Spider-Man continues to expand its cast. We know that director Marc Webb found his Mary-Jane Watson with Shailene Woodley and his villain with Jamie Foxx taking on the mantle of Electro, but now the film is looking for a Harry Osborn.

Heat Vision is reporting that Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is still working on how it will portray Harry, but it is looking at a few actors right now. The part of Harry was originally slanted towards a bigger, more athletic actor, but the role has changed into something “edgier and darker.” The top names on the list are Dane DeHaan (Chronicle), Alden Ehrenreich (upcoming Beautiful Creatures) and Brady Corbet (Melancholia). While those are allegedly the top names, at these early stages there could be more actors in contention.

Out of the list of contenders, I would give DeHaan the edge. He played a slightly Harry Osborn-esque character in Josh Trank’s Chronicle. With the first film’s darker tone, you can probably expect a dark and gritty Harry and Norman Osborn. The character is a college aged kid who befriends Peter Parker, and other than that we don’t know what direction they’re taking Harry. How would you like to see Harry portrayed? Who do you want to play him?
