Green goblin actor

green goblin actor

While Tom Holland's Spider-Man has memorably gone up against the likes of Vulture and Mysterio in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the big villain all us fans want him to green goblin actor face is the Green Goblin. One of Spidey's most dangerous and chaotic antagonists, the Green Goblin, whether in goblin form or simply as businessman Norman Osborn, has so much potential as an adversary not just to Peter Parker but the entire MCU as a whole. RELATED: Spider-Man: 5 Moments That Prove He Should Lead The Avengers (& 5 Moments That Green goblin actor He Shouldn't) Question is though, who could play him?

Willem Dafoe played the role pitch-perfectly in 2002's Spider-Man, so not green goblin actor does a new actor have to live up to that performance but also take into consideration what else can be done with this character.

There's no shortage of talented actors working today though, and we've compiled a list of actors who we think could green goblin actor the role out of the park. So here's Green Goblin: 10 Actors Who Could Glide and Strike Fear in the MCU. 10 Dominic West An underrated English actor who's given a plethora of great performances, West would do a great job in the role of Oscorp's founder. West isn't a stranger to Marvel films, having played the over-the-top villain Jigsaw in Punisher: War Zone, though that film isn't considered one of Marvel's best.

He'd be better suited for Norman, where his smug charm (as seen in roles on The Wire, The Affair, and Money Monster) could work to make Osborn as lovably detestable as he can be, but West has shown he can be intense green goblin actor the time calls for it, which would work well for when Norman is at his most unhinged.

9 Jason Isaacs Isaacs has long been a fan-favorite to play Green Goblin, and for good reason: he excels at playing charismatic yet ruthlessly evil characters, from Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films to Colonel William Tavington in The Patriot. Those traits would certainly lend themselves to an entertaining and complex antagonist in the MCU.

Isaacs also isn't a stranger to superhero films, at least in the animated variety: he voiced Sinestro (another role he's been suggested for) in 2011's Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, as well as Superman himself in the recently released Superman: Red Son. We think it's time he made the jump to live-action superhero films as the Green Goblin. 8 Bryan Cranston Often considered one of the most talented actors working today, Cranston is a favorite of many fan castings for either DC or Marvel properties.

While he's been suggested for the likes of Commissioner Gordon and Professor Xavier in the past, it's the Green Goblin that fans most want to see him portray. RELATED: Breaking Bad: 10 Times Walter White Legitimately Scared Us Anyone who's seen Cranston's role as Walter White on Breaking Bad knows what the actor could bring to the role green goblin actor Spider-Man's arch-nemesis. That ability to go from calm and meticulous in one minute to explosive anger in the next is the key to Norman's character, and Cranston is one of the few able to do it with ease.

7 Andrew Lincoln It's a shame that Lincoln hasn't gotten much work recently outside of The Walking Dead because he's an astonishingly talented actor who deserves more roles in bigger projects. One such role could be Osborn, if the opportunity ever came in his direction. If his TWD co-stars Jon Bernthal and Danai Gurira can join the MCU, surely Lincoln can also.

RELATED: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About James Cameron’s Canceled Spider-Man Movie As Rick Grimes, Lincoln often gave off a commanding sense of leadership, as well as powerful anger and physicality in his more intense moments; each of these traits would serve green goblin actor in playing both Norman and Green Goblin.

6 James Nesbitt The critically acclaimed Irish actor who (outside of The Hobbit trilogy and the Starz/BBC One drama The Missing) unfortunately hasn't broken big outside of the UK. Nesbitt would be a dark horse pick for Gobby, but a very welcome one. His starring role on the 2007 miniseries Jekyll gives us an inkling of how he'd do in the role.

As Tom Jackman's Hyde-esque alter ego, Nesbitt was effectively ruthless, unpredictable, sadistic, and unexpectedly funny. Seeing him bring those electric traits to the MCU would make for an amazing and creepy antagonist, and could open up more career opportunities for him in the U.S. going forward. 5 Matthew Rhys The Americans star Rhys has won acclaim for his role on the show as Phillip Jennings, a KGB officer posing as a married father of two in 1980s Virginia.

It's in this role that the Wales-born actor has exuded an air of magnetic charisma and fierce, often fiery determination in getting what he wants. It's also his chameleon-like ability to change accents and mannerisms at the drop of a hat that proves to us he'd be able to handle the roles of both Norman and Green Goblin.

4 Damian Lewis Lewis has proved his mettle as an immensely talented actor, as seen from his roles in two Showtime series, Homelandand Billions. It's in both of those roles, as USMC Sergeant Nicholas Brody and hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod respectively, that he's displayed not only an arresting sense of charisma and showmanship but also an ability to be effectively creepy and explosively short-tempered. While he's been avoiding the call of comic book movies, the complex dual nature of the Green Goblin could certainly lure an actor of Lewis's caliber.

Plus, it would reunite him with Tom Holland, who Lewis previously worked with on the BBC miniseries adaptation of Wolf Hall. 3 Oscar Isaac Isaac's last venture into superhero territory was as the titular villain in X-Men: Apocalypse, where he (like the rest of the cast) was victim to a not-so-great script, not to mention a large and cumbersome suit in his case.

If he's willing to give the genre another shot, another villain more deserving of his talents would no doubt be Osborn and his cackling, pumpkin bomb-throwing alter ego.

RELATED: Oscar Isaac's 10 Best Movies, According To Rotten Tomatoes While Isaac's a bit younger than some of the other entries on this list, his role in Ex Machina shows that he's no stranger to playing shady scientist types, and he's no doubt got it covered when it comes to darkly charismatic or unhinged roles either. 2 Antony Starr Starr gives a mesmerizing performance as Homelander on Amazon Prime's adaptation of The Boys; a nightmare mirror image of Superman, Homelander is equal parts manipulative, self-centered, and carelessly sociopathic, all hidden under a veil of old school Americana and goodwill.

Starr remained a scary yet engaging presence, one it would be wise to hang a character like the Green Goblin on. 1 Michael C. Hall The Dexter star is more than capable of green goblin actor this role and giving us one of the best antagonists the MCU has to offer.

As Dexter Morgan, he managed to effortlessly combine a charming, likable facade with an intense, often frightening demeanor when satisfying his urge to kill. As the antagonist in Gamer, he was one of the film's bright spots as an equally playful and sadistic character with shades of the Goblin there. It's a shame that Hall hasn't gotten that many roles recently, as he's a phenomenal actor deserving of more roles to unleash his versatile chops.

Playing Norman Osborn/Green Goblin in the MCU would certainly be one we'd pick.

The Green Goblin's Personality The Green Goblin is unlike Norman's persona, instead, it has a mind and will of its own.

The origin points to the chemical drug that Norman took, which unknowingly sprung up the malicious, delusional side of him. Signs of Goblin controlling Norman while in public; green goblin actor as insulting Aunt May, bashing Mary Jane, and even causing terror to his enemies or New York's lowly bystanders. In private, Norman was brainwashed by the Green Goblin in order to cause harm and destruction to those he think deserve it, creating danger for New York.

However, the Green Goblin believed that he was helping Norman get power and remove anyone that stood in his way. Also, the Green Goblin despises Spider-Man as he sees him a threat and attempted to cause harm to him through those who are closest to him.

Despite this, the Green Goblin did at first try to offer a partnership because he noticed that they weren't so different but his hatred for him got worse when he refused. In No Way Home, the Green Goblin sees the MCU a new world that needs conquering and wants to cause destruction in any possible way. Also, the Green Goblin can't stand Norman as he sees him a weak coward that's hiding from who he truly is and a puppet for his own needs.

However, the Green Goblin tried to get Norman to cooperate with him but he refused, which led him to go into hiding. While laying low and watching through Norman's eyes, the Green Goblin developed a strong dislike for the current universe Spider-Man because of the same characteristics he shares with his own.

Also, after seeing the current Spider-Man, Norman and Otto were closes to removing him from the scientists mind for good, the Green Goblin comes out of hiding to stop them from succeeding.

Also, similar to what he did to his Spider-Man, the Green Goblin decided to target the current universe Peter Parker through those who are closest to by killing his Aunt May in order to turn him into a killer just like him, which he almost succeeded if not for his Spider-Man.

Abilities and Equipment The Green Goblin pilots a high-tech jet glider, armed with seeking missiles and machine guns. His suit consists of green armor that cybernetic-ally connects him to his glider and weapons. He is seen using three varieties of his signature " Pumpkin Bombs": one which is a simple explosive; one that releases a bright, radioactive flash which reduces people to skeletons; and one that splits into flying, razor-bat blades.

Rather than carrying a shoulder "bag of tricks", the weapons are contained in the glider and are ejected individually out of their storage compartment when desired. His suit is armed with knockout gas that is released from the wrists.

His suit is also linked to the Goblin Glider, allowing him to control it remotely. Green goblin has superhuman strength capable of beating Spider-Man in battle using his hand to hand combat (though Spider-Man was hurt) he can also break Spider-Mans web which is like metal really easily. He even shows strength when he punches a wall when Spider-Man ducks in the final battle and he busted the wall completely showing his strength of his blows. He has a shiny trident specifically to kill Spider-Man.

His armor protects him from majority of injuries so he 's barely being hurt or damaged from fighting unlike Green goblin actor.

It's only damaged when Spider-Man brings down a brick wall which made his suit finally experience dents and scratches. In the Spider-Man movie game, Green Goblin is able to run really fast using superspeed if the green goblin actor plays as him. It is unknown if he could be able to use this ability since it is exclusive in the game.

There are many moviegoing experiences that have shaped and stuck with us throughout our lives.

For some, heading into the cinema has become as habitual as waking up in the morning – green goblin actor second nature. However, green goblin actor remain some unshakeable memories that we have of being eclipsed by darkness, ready to witness something truly special as we’re soaked under the light of the silver screen. Marvel fans will likely remember the first time they saw 2012’s The Avengers, for example, or the monumental heartbreak of A vengers: Endgame.

Then there’s the birth of the MCU itself which came courtesy of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man in 2008. Long before these iconic films, on the other hand, there was Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man. Two years prior, X-Men opened up groundbreaking new possibilities for superhero cinema and Tobey Maguire’s first outing as the web-slinger cemented comic-book adaptations as not just blockbuster gold, but adventures of a lifetime for audiences.

Many film fans will never forget the first time they witnessed Spidey take on the Green Goblin, seeing characters they’d perhaps grown up with in print translate to the big screen in ways they never could have imagined. As Hollywood very well knows, green goblin actor is a powerful thing and viewers have been struck with waves of it thanks to the teaser trailer for Tom Holland’s latest and third stand-alone outing as your friendly neighborhood hero.

There are many takeaways from the exhilarating footage, but most have one pressing question in mind… is Willem Dafoe in Spider-Man: No Way Home? • NO WAY HOME: Actor suggests Tobey Maguire return Marvel Studios - Sony Pictures Is Willem Dafoe in Spider-Man: No Way Home?

• Yes, Willem Dafoe’s casting in Spider-Man: No Way Home is essentially confirmed by the film’s teaser trailer. Those familiar with Spider-Man will recognise that the character’s iconic laugh as delivered by Willem in the blockbuster can be heard clearly, although he doesn’t appear explicitly. Instead, we have visuals of a Pumpkin Bomb rolling past cars before exploding in a destructive spectacle.

The 66-year-old American actor has long been rumoured to star in the highly anticipated project. Earlier in August, The Wrap asked the man himself whether he’d be appearing and he replied “no comment”, going on to explain: “I got lots of stuff happening now.

And, you know, I always feel like when a film comes out, that’s when it’s time to talk about it.” Although this may appear discouraging, this is somewhat common practice when it comes to MCU movies, with the studio and team striving to maintain secrets so audiences have surprises in store when the film finally releases. While Willem cannot be seen in the trailer, another iconic presence from Sam Raimi’s Spidey trilogy shows up on screen to help reinforce that this Multiversal narrative will bring in other characters from Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man films; perhaps even Tobey himself.

That’s right. We close with Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octavius greeting Peter, donning the signature robotic tentacles. Spider-Man 2 is increasingly regarded as one of the best superhero films of all time, so needless to say, fans are thrilled to see him reprising the part.

• THE WALKING DEAD: Who is Mercer? 13872 Willem Dafoe fans react Green goblin actor course, the beloved actor’s many fans have wasted no time in flocking to Twitter in reaction to the No Way Home trailer.

Seeing Green Goblin back on screens within the MCU is sure to be a sight to behold, and even a laugh and a Pumpkin Bomb has generated unbelievable amounts of excitement.

In other news, Bruce Campbell’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness cameo is gold
After a lot of waiting, a lot of speculation about the multiverse, and a plethora of (possibly baseless) rumors, the internet finally erupted for real when Marvel Studios and Sony released the first teaser for Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The movie, which marks the third solo MCU outing for Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, has long been rumored as the movie with the possibility to bring all three live-action Spider-Mans—Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire—together, and the trailer certainly adds more fuel to that fire.

But one thing the teaser 100% confirms is the green goblin actor of some classic villains of Spider-Man past, including Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, and, well, someone as the Green Goblin. Let's get a bit more into that last part, shall we? Obviously there are going to be a lot of major reveals in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and no one from Marvel Studios wants to give all of that away in the trailer.

So here's the basics of what we got: Peter Parker's identity is known as a result of Mysterio's actions at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Life is tough. Now that he knows Doctor Strange—they did help save the world together—and both are born and bred New Yorkers, he pops over to Bleeker street to ask for some help.

Doctor Strange, apparently now feeling his own hubris more than ever, agrees to help make it so no one ever knew Peter's secret identity. No one. But that, apparently, is stupid! And rips some sort of hole in the multiverse. From here, we get glimpses of baddies of Spider-Man past. A shock of lightning from an Electro (an unseen Jamie Foxx, who is confirmed to be returning).

The big money shot green goblin actor the trailer is when Doc Ock says "Hello, Peter." We see Alfred Molina, and we know it's him. But while we do see Doc Ock, all we see from the Green Goblin is a pumpkin bomb, and a familiar laugh. We don't see who it is. Which has created some speculation. And you know we're going to dive all the way into it. Who's this Green Goblin? Spider-Man's archenemesis has taken multiple forms in his movie history, and seen numerous characters taking up the mantle.

But we think we have an idea of who it is here. Sony Pictures The clear frontrunner for the actor playing the Green Goblin in Spider-Man: No Way Home (and the laugher in this teaser trailer) is Willem Dafoe. Green goblin actor take on Norman Osborn/Green Goblin in Sam Raimi's 2002 Spider-Man is the iconic take on the character, and the kind of appearance that the powers that be behind the movie would certainly love to keep as a surprise.

Dafoe is an icon himself, an Academy Award-nominated actor, and would 100% be an asset for any movie to have. That's not to mention the fact that the laugh in the trailer sounds very similar to his Goblin laugh from Raimi's movies, and that the Pumpkin Bomb that lands on the bridge looks like the ones he used. When asked about his potential involvement in No Way Home recently, Dafoe played cryptically coy. “I got lots of stuff happening now," he said. "And, you know, I always feel like when a film comes out, that’s when it’s time to talk about it." Eyebrows raised for sure.

Our money's on the OG Goblin. Dane DeHaan Sony Pictures The likelihood is significantly less here. DeHaan played the Harry Osborn version of the Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, to significantly unenthusiastic fanfare.

This is not a well-received version of the character. Still, the presence of Jamie Foxx as Electro in No Way Home makes it definite that the Amazing Spider-Man movies will be included. But we'd be surprised if the DeHaan version of the Goblin plays a major part.

Perhaps a brief appearance though! James Franco Sony Pictures It would also be possible that the James Franco character from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films would appear here. Franco appeared in all three of the movies in that series as Harry Osborn, taking up his father's mantle as Green Goblin in Spider-Man 3.

Some fans online have speculated that the line in the No Way Home trailer " Be careful what you wish for, Parker," is said by Franco; that's incorrect, as it's clearly a line spoken by Doctor Strange. While his involvement with the original Spider-Man films and proximity to the Norman Osborn Goblin would make it seem possible or even likely that Franco could appear, the actor's toxic personal history make it unlikely he would be contracted by Disney/Sony to return.

Jacob Batalon Marvel Studios One more idea for you here. This will be the third film where Jacob Batalon plays Ned Leeds—Peter's best friend. But every decision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is chosen carefully, and the name "Ned Leeds" is an important one in Spider-Man lore. Most notably, it's an important name because the Ned Leeds of the comics eventually becomes a quasi-Green Goblin spinoff, the Hobgoblin.

It eventually turns out that the Ned who becomes the Hobgoblin is being brainwashed into his villainy, and we just wanted to throw out the idea that someone (perhaps some version of Norman Osborn, or a not-so-dead Mysterio?) is controlling either our Ned or a variant version of Ned, and he's now the Hobgoblin? Just a thought. While the laugh we hear is certainly not that of Jacob Batalon, it's worth considering that he's the one throwing the pumpkin bomb.

Withholding the thrower of the bomb clearly means it's supposed to be someone who would surprise us. And we all sort of see, say, Willem Dafoe coming, right? Someone else entirely!

Men's Health As we saw in Loki, there are numerous variants in the multiverse, many of which we've likely never seen before. Sure, the rich history of the Green Goblin means that Marvel could potentially pull all sorts of callbacks and character returns here—and they likely will.

But what's to say we don't see some other variant version of the Green Goblin? Would Jason Sudeikis, for one possible instance (and see above photo), not be a cool Norman Osborn? Not saying it's going to happen but you never know. It's worth thinking about logically. Let's say that the Norman Osborn here is from the multiverse, and he's played by Willem Dafoe.

That still means that the MCU world—the world with Tom Holland as Peter Parker—has it's own Norman Osborn that we haven't seen yet. And we have no idea what that Norman looks like—or who'll be set to play him. • About Men's Health • Newsletter • Customer Care • E-prints, Reprints • Advertise • Subscribe • Give a Gift • Manage Email Preferences • Other Hearst Subscriptions • Media Kit A Part of Hearst Digital Media Men's Health participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may get paid commissions on editorially chosen products purchased through our links to retailer sites.Norman Osborn as the Green Goblin, art by Luke Ross Publication information Publisher Marvel Comics First appearance The Amazing Spider-Man #14 (July 1964) Created by Stan Lee Steve Ditko In-story green goblin actor Alter ego Norman Osborn Harry Osborn Bart Hamilton Phil Urich Species Human mutate Notable aliases Goblin King Goblin Knight Red Goblin Abilities • Superhuman strength, stamina, durability, agility and reflexes due to ingesting the Goblin Formula • Regeneration • Genius-level intellect • Master hand-to-hand combatant and martial artist • Using goblin-themed weapons and a Goblin Glider which has a variety of offensive weapons as paraphernalia The Green Goblin is the alias of several supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

The first and best-known incarnation, Norman Osborn, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, is generally regarded as the archenemy of Spider-Man. [1] Originally a manifestation of chemically induced insanity, others such as Norman's son Harry Osborn would take on the persona. The Green Goblin is a Halloween-themed super villain whose weapons resemble bats, ghosts and jack-o'-lanterns and in most incarnations uses a hoverboard or glider to fly.

Comics journalist and historian Mike Conroy writes of the character: "Of all the costumed villains who've plagued Spider-Man over the years, the most flat-out unhinged and terrifying of them all is the Green Goblin." [2] The Green Goblin has appeared in numerous media adaptations of Spider-Man over the years, including films, animated television series, and video games.

Norman and Harry Osborn were portrayed by Willem Dafoe and James Franco in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man film trilogy (2002–2007), and by Chris Cooper and Dane Green goblin actor in the film The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014). Dafoe reprised his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021).

Cover art by Steve Ditko. According to Steve Ditko: Stan's synopsis for the Green Goblin had a movie crew, on location, finding an Egyptian-like sarcophagus. Inside was an ancient, mythological demon, the Green Goblin. He naturally came to life. On my own, I changed Stan's mythological demon into a human villain. [3] The Green Goblin debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man #14.

[4] At this time his identity was unknown, green goblin actor he proved popular and reappeared in later issues, which made a point of his secret identity. According to both Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr., who replaced Ditko as the title's artist, Lee always wanted the Green Goblin to be someone Peter Parker knew, while Ditko wanted his civilian identity to be someone who hadn't yet been introduced.

[5] [6] [7] Lee green goblin actor Steve wanted him to turn out to be just some character that we had never seen before. Because, he said, in real life, very often a villain turns out to be somebody that you never knew. And I felt that that would be wrong. I felt, in a sense, it would be like cheating the reader.

. if it's somebody you didn't know and had never seen, then what was the point of following all the clues? I think that frustrates the reader. [7] However, Lee prefaced this statement by admitting that, due to his self-professed poor memory, he may have been confusing the Green Goblin with a different character. [a] [7] Moreover, in an earlier essay he had said that he could not remember whether Norman Osborn being the Green Goblin was his idea or Ditko's.

[8] Ditko has maintained that it was his idea, even claiming that he had decided on it before the first Green Goblin story was finished, and that a character he drew in the background of a single panel of Amazing Spider-Man #23 was meant to be Norman Osborn (who is not introduced until issue green goblin actor. [3] [9] Ditko left the series with issue #38, just one issue after Norman Osborn was introduced as the father of Harry Osborn. The first issue without Ditko saw the Green Goblin unmasked.

John Romita, Sr., who replaced Ditko as the title's artist, recalled: Stan wouldn't have been able to stand it if Ditko did the story and didn't reveal that the Green Goblin was Norman Osborn.

I didn't know there was any doubt about Osborn being the Goblin. I didn't know that Ditko had just been setting Osborn up as a straw dog. I just accepted the fact that it was going to be Norman Osborn when we plotted it. I had been following the last couple of issues and didn't think there was really much mystery about it. Looking back, I doubt the Goblin's identity would have been revealed in Amazing #39 if Ditko had stayed on. [10] In the landmark story, " The Night Gwen Stacy Died" ( The Amazing Spider-Man #121–122), the Green Goblin kills Gwen Stacy and later perishes in a fight against Spider-Man.

However, the story's writer, Gerry Conway, had Harry Osborn adopt the Green Goblin identity in that story's aftermath, later remarking that "I never had any intention of getting rid of the Green Goblin as a concept".

[11] Harry Osborn's becoming the Green Goblin was mostly well-received, with fans remarking that Harry was more menacing than his father had ever been. [12] Several other characters would take on the Green Goblin identity, and writer Roger Stern later introduced the Hobgoblin to replace the Green Goblin as Spider-Man's archenemy. [13] In addition, a retcon during the " Clone Saga" determined that the original Green Goblin survived the events of The Amazing Spider-Man #122 and had been playing a behind-the-scenes role in Spider-Man's adventures since then.

Fictional character biography [ edit green goblin actor Norman Osborn [ edit ] Main article: Harry Osborn Harold "Harry" Osborn is Norman Osborn's son and the second character who used the Green Goblin alias. Bart Hamilton [ edit ] Dr. Barton "Bart" Hamilton was a psychologist born in Scarsdale, New York and the third character to use the Green Goblin alias.

When Harry was put under medical care, Dr. Hamilton managed to make Harry bury the vendetta as the Goblin identity from Harry's subconscious via hypnosis. [14] Dr. Hamilton uses these secrets to be the third Goblin.

[15] But since Harry has no knowledge of where Norman's strength-enhancing Goblin formula is, Hamilton is unable to locate it. He hatches an elaborate plot to kill Silvermane but Harry resumes the Goblin identity to stop him. They battle and Hamilton is accidentally killed by a bomb with which he meant to kill Spider-Man. [16] Years later, there was speculation that Hamilton was the Hobgoblin but this is disproved.

[17] A Goblin that was presumably Hamilton appears as a member of the second incarnation of the Legion of the Unliving green goblin actor by the Grandmaster.

After being pitted against the Green goblin actor, the group and their master are vanquished by Death. [18] During the Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy storyline, Bart's Goblin form is cloned by the Jackal's company New U Technologies.

[19] Phil Urich [ edit ] Main article: Phil Urich Philip Benjamin "Phil" Urich is the nephew of Ben Urich and the fourth character to use the Green Goblin alias. Nameless construct [ edit ] Norman begins trying to convince the public after returning from the dead of never being the infamous supervillain, and conspired with associate Doctor Angst genetically engineer a new Green Goblin, one slavishly devoted to help his case.

[20] Norman uses this Goblin as a bodyguard, [21] to torment Spider-Man, [22] and in ploys designed to draw public sympathy (such as kidnapping Normie Osborn for ransom). [23] After Norman is incapacitated by the Gathering of Five, the Goblin is left alone and begins to degenerate due to no longer having access to the Goblin Formula required to keep him stable. The Goblin goes after Liz Allan in a desperate bid to find a cure for his condition, but is driven off by Spider-Man.

[24] During a second attempt to capture Liz, the Goblin unmasks himself in front of Spider-Man (shuffling through a variety of faces (with the most prominent being Harry Osborn) after doing so) and melts into a pile of protoplasm as he claims Norman would return. [20] Powers and abilities [ edit ] In his first appearances, the Green Goblin seems to be a normal man (albeit very nimble and athletic) who gets his powers from his many gadgets.

In later appearances, it is established that due to the "Goblin Formula", Norman and most successors to the Green Goblin persona possesses superhuman strength (lifting nine tons under optimal conditions), increased speed, reflexes, endurance, intelligence and healing rate, while Norman started with a portion of the chemical's power because of an accidental splash in the face during the time where one had to bathe in it long enough to get the full effect before the drinking version was created.

Though much slower than the likes of Wolverine, he can regenerate damaged tissue and organs. However, if seriously wounded, it would leave scars on his body. His intelligence has been enhanced to gifted levels, though at the price of his sanity. His involvement with the Gathering of the Five loosened his grip on reality, though he is able to maintain some semblance of his sanity via chemically treated dermal patches.

When not impaired by mental illness, Osborn is a cunning businessman, masterful strategist, and highly skilled in electronics, mechanics, engineering and chemistry. The Green Goblin is armed with a variety of bizarre devices. He travels on his bat-shaped "Goblin Glider", an incredibly fast and maneuverable rocket glider equipped with various armaments. Other weapons the Goblin uses include incendiary Pumpkin Bombs and Ghost Bombs, smoke- and gas-emitting grenades resembling jack-'o'-lanterns and ghosts, respectively, razor-edged boomerang-like throwing weapons called razor bats and gloves woven with micro-circuited filaments which channel pulsed discharges of electricity at nearly 10,000 volts.

He wears a green costume underneath bulletproof chainmail with an overlapping purple tunic. His mask has a built-in gas filter to keep him safe from his own gases. Goblin Glider [ edit ] In the Green Goblin's first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #14, he rides a steel rocket-powered wingless broomstick (not a glider).

In his second appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #17, he changes to the familiar bat-shaped glider. The Goblin Glider's controls and microprocessor are located behind the head of the glider. The pilot is attached to the glider via electromagnetic clasps on the wings of the glider. It has great maneuverability and is steered mostly by leaning, but manual controls are available behind the head of the glider.

The Goblin later added radio-linked voice controls to his mask. Its top speed is 90 miles per hour (140 km/h), and it can support about 400 lb (180 kg), though it could lift far more for brief periods.

Flying at top speed with a full load and a full fuel tank would deplete its fuel supply in about an hour. In the Goblin's later appearances, the glider possesses a wide array of armaments, including heat-seeking and smart missiles, machine guns, extending blades, a flamethrower and a Pumpkin Bomb dispenser/launcher.

Pumpkin Bombs, Ghost Bombs, and the "Bag of Tricks" [ edit ] A grenade used by the Green Goblin, the Pumpkin Bomb resembles a miniature Jack-o'-lantern and, when thrown, ignites almost soundlessly and produces enough heat to melt through a 3-inch (76 mm) thick sheet of steel.

The Goblin carries these and a variety of other weapons, such as razor bats (akin to bladed boomerangs) and miniature "Ghost Bombs", in an over-the-shoulder satchel he calls his "Bag of Tricks". Green goblin actor Green Goblin has a range of other "Pumpkin Bombs" and "Ghost Bombs" at his disposal, including smoke-and gas-emitting bombs. Some release hallucinogenic gases, while others emit a specially-created mixture that neutralizes Spider-Man's spider-sense for a limited period of time.

Still others emit a flame-retarding gas, which the Goblin once used against the Human Torch. [25] All of these are covered in a light plastic coating. Groups [ edit ] Goblinettes [ edit ] Some time after Norman's death, Harry is abducted by a trio of mysterious female Goblins. With the aid of Ben Urich and Molten Man, Spider-Man discovers that these "Goblinettes" are robots created by Harry, and controlled by a supercomputer containing copies of Harry and Norman's minds.

The Goblinettes are destroyed along with the computer, which had been programmed to expose Normie Osborn to the same version of Goblin serum that killed Harry, in attempt to create a new Green Goblin. [26] Order of the Goblin [ edit ] An offshoot of the Scriers cult founded by Norman, consisting of only his most loyal followers.

Goblin Gangs [ edit ] Following Norman's rise and fall from power, a number of Goblin Gangs sprang up across America. Composed mostly of white supremacists who agreed with his plans to remove the Asgardians from green goblin actor country, they wear purple clothes, green face makeup and have goblin-based tattoos. [27] Vin Gonzales was revealed to have received one of these tattoos while in prison passing a message from Norman to Harry about Stanley Osborn.

[28] Goblin Nation [ edit ] The Goblin Nation, also known as the Goblin Underground, is a group of organized crime composed of Goblin-themed villains led by the Goblin King against the Superior Spider-Man.

[29] War Goblins [ edit ] In the eight-month ellipsis that occurred subsequent to the events of Secret Wars, a heavily bandaged arms dealer claiming to be Norman Osborn began selling Goblin-based costumes and equipment on the black market, establishing private armies of "War Goblins".

[30] Other versions [ edit ] As a fictional character, the Green Goblin has appeared in a number of media, from comic books to films and television series. Each version of the character is typically established within its own continuity within parallel universes, to the point where distinct differences in the portrayal of the character can be identified.

Various versions of the Goblin are depicted in works such as Marvel's Ultimate line and Earth X. 2099 [ edit ] In the Marvel 2099 setting, the Goblin is a radical trickster who wants to prove that Spider-Man (Miguel O'Hara) is in the pay of a megacorp like Alchemax. He has bat-like glider-wings and a bag of "tricks", similar to the 20th century version. He also has the ability to project illusions. [31] He is eventually unmasked, and appears to be Spider-Man's brother Gabriel O'Hara, although it is later revealed, in a retcon, that he is a shapeshifter who took Gabriel's identity.

Writer Peter David, who quit the book between creating the character and the unmasking, has said that it was his intent for the Goblin to be female Catholic priest named Father Jennifer, and for Gabriel to be a red herring. [32] [33] This Goblin was never called the Green Goblin, but instead simply Goblin 2099. [31] In All-New, All-Different Marvel, during a travel to 2099, Spider-Man (O'Hara) is captured by that era's Venom and Doctor Octopus.

Miguel later wakes up in Alchemax, which is run by that era's Sinister Six. The Sinister Six discover that the Goblin is actually Father Jennifer D'Angelo, an undercover ally of Kasey. After receiving a message from the Sinister Six, Miguel and Kasey go to Alchemax to rescue Father Jennifer. Upon escaping, Spider-Man and Father Jennifer arrive at an area where the time door appears, but Jennifer is killed by Doctor Octopus.

In other media [ edit ] • The Green Goblin 2099 is a playable character and a boss in Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. [34] He first appears in Manhattan, after it has been made part of Chronopolis, and fights Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen alongside the Vulture, but both villains are swiftly defeated.

Later, the Goblin 2099 obtains a shard of the Nexus of All Realities, which he uses to fuse Venom and Carnage into a new creature, dubbed " Carnom," whom he controls.

When Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Spider-Gwen, and Spider-Man 2099 arrive in Nueva York (also part of Chronopolis) and break into Alchemax to retrieve the shard, the Goblin 2099 unleashes Carnom upon them, but they defeat him and free him from the Goblin's control. The Goblin 2099 is last seen being pursued by Carnom in retaliation for his abuse. Avataars: Covenant of the Shield [ edit ] In the miniseries Avataars: Covenant of the Shield, which takes place in an alternative universe referred to as Eurth created by the Shaper of Worlds, the Green Goblin appears as the Goblin King.

A small, nimble creature green in color and adorned in purple rags, the Goblin King is shown to speak solely in rhyme and runs a toll booth in the Webwood, extorting goods from travelers along with his henchmen the Six Most Sinister. [35] House of M [ edit ] In the Spider-Man: House of M from the 2005 Marvel comics series House of M, there are two versions of the Green Goblin. • The first is Peter's wrestling friend and rival Crusher Hogan, who uses the identity as his wrestling franchise.

• The second is Peter Parker himself, who, feeling guilty posing as a mutant when really he was a human given powers in the usual Spider-Man fashion (radioactive spider bite), poses as the Green Goblin to reveal the information about him being a human to J. Jonah Jameson, his then publicist, and eventually the entire world. Norman Osborn is also present in this continuity, as an industrialist whose company is bought out by Peter. [36] MC2 [ edit ] Green goblin actor the Goblin Queen [ edit ] Élan DeJunae, daughter of the San Mardeo DeJunae crime family in South America, is betrothed to Normie Osborn when she is just a baby because of her father's involvement with the Order of the Goblin.

[ volume & issue needed] From then on, Élan learns the family business and eventually makes connections with the Black Tarantula. She grows up training to follow Norman Osborn's footsteps, and eventually becomes the leader of the Order of the Goblin. Following a near fatal attack on Normie, Élan returns to New York to follow through with their arranged marriage, but Normie was not aware of the betrothal. Green goblin actor, Élan and the Black Tarantula plot to use Spider-Girl to destroy Lady Octopus and Canis so they can take control of the New York underworld.

Following plans made by Norman Osborn before his death, the Queen of the Goblins tries to dose Normie Osborn with a new version of the Goblin Formula. Spider-Girl manages to defeat Élan, but in the battle, the formula explodes and the Queen escapes. [ volume & issue needed] Because Normie spurned her and denied his place in the Goblin legacy, Fury crashes green goblin actor wedding to Brenda Drago and forcibly bonds the Venom- symbiote to him in an attempt to corrupt him.

This backfires, as Normie gained control of the symbiote and went on to become a hero. After Fury crashed Normie's wedding, Phil Urich (the good Green Goblin) defeats her and sends her to prison.

[ volume & issue needed] Normie Osborn [ edit ] Main article: Normie Osborn Normie Osborn is the son of Harry Osborn and Liz Allan, and the grandson of Norman Osborn. In the alternative timeline of the MC2 universe he becomes the Green Goblin and battles Spider-Man's daughter, May "Mayday" Parker, before reforming and becoming her ally. [ volume & issue needed] Phil Urich [ edit ] In green goblin actor MC2 timeline, Phil Urich marries his girlfriend Meredith and is a forensic scientist and friends with Peter Parker.

He is aware of both Peter and Spider-Girl's identities. Phil Urich resumes the Goblin identity, first under the name of the Golden Goblin, then as the Green Goblin with the assistance of Normie Osborn (III).

After Phil lost a long series of battles, Normie recreates Phil's original mask, which grants him superhuman strength and other abilities, greatly enhancing his effectiveness.

He is also a founding member of the New New Warriors. [37] Spider-Man: India [ edit ] Spider-Man: India features Nalin Oberoi, a ruthless businessman in Mumbai, who is ravaging villages for a mystical amulet to connect with evil, supernatural demons who once ruled the world. [38] The process works and transforms Oberoi into "Green Goblin". He also transforms a meek doctor into "Doctor Octopus" and sends him to find Pavitar Prabhakar (Spider-Man).

Oberoi later burns down Pavitar's village (branding it with his initials NO), and kidnaps MJ, and Aunt Maya ( Aunt May). [39] At Oberoi HQ, he tries to bring down the demons, until a reformed Octopus and Pavitar attack and rescue the ladies. After killing the doctor, Oberoi is later defeated by Pavitar.

[40] Oberoi also has a son mentioned by Pavitar, Hari. [40] In other media [ edit ] • ^ It is possible that Lee was thinking of The Big Man. The Big Man was a mob villain who, like the Green Goblin, was created by Lee/Ditko and had the mystery of his identity played up before being unmasked as someone Spider-Man knew from his civilian life. Moreover, later in the interview Lee suggests that he had the Green Goblin confused with "a gangster". References [ edit ] • ^ Rovin, Jeff (1987).

This connection is with good reason; he gave perhaps one of the most iconic performances in comic book movie history in 2002's Spider-Man, reprising his role in 2021's Spider-Man: No Way Home. Green goblin actor The Best Character Introduced In Every MCU Disney+ Show Though it does not appear that the MCU has any plans to recast the role of Norman Osborn for the universe in which the majority of the franchise takes place, if they were to do so, certain actors would be excellent in bringing their talents to the MCU.

Javier Bardem Fifteen years after its release, No Country for Old Men is perhaps best remembered for the performance of Javier Bardem as the terrifying Anton Chigurh. As a non-horror movie character scarier than many actual horror movie villains, Chigurh's methodical relentlessness sticks with viewers, and the character is believable partly because of Bardem's phenomenal talents in the role.

The ability to captivate and scare audiences is crucial to the role of the Green Goblin, and Bardem would be able to do both exceptionally well. Giancarlo Esposito Best known for his villainous characters, Giancarlo Esposito played perhaps one of the most iconic TV villains of all time with his portrayal of Gustavo Fring in Breaking Bad.

While this character and several others Esposito has green goblin actor are more cold and calculating than the Green Goblin, there is no doubt that the skilled actor could bring forth an excellent performance. He has recently been a part of The Mandalorian as Moff Gideon, but fans would likely not mind seeing him in another live-action Disney project.

Gary Oldman Throughout his storied career thus far, Gary Oldman has played roles that feature a wide array of personalities and backgrounds. For instance, he played Jim Gordon, one of the most likable main characters in the Dark Knight trilogy, as well as the titular Count in Bram Stoker's Dracula. One of the most renowned actors working today, Gary Oldman provides chameleonic, enthralling performances, and it is safe to assume he would do the same with a role as the Green Goblin.

Daniel Dae Kim Daniel Dae Kim has earned accolades in large part for his television roles, including series like Hawaii Five-O, Lost, and Angel. However, he has recently had more prominent roles in films, such as lending his vocal talents to last year's Raya and the Last Dragon as Benja.

RELATED: 10 Non-Disney Movies To Watch If You Like Raya And The Last Dragon The actor excellently conveys emotions through his work in ways that make him magnetic to watch. Dae Kim has shown himself to be incredibly charismatic, commanding every scene he is a part of.

If he were to play the Green Goblin in the MCU, he would undoubtedly do a phenomenal job. Ewan McGregor Throughout his career up to this point, Ewan McGregor has played characters with a multitude of moralities, and he has done so excellently time and time again.

He recently showed that he could portray a charismatic villain in his role as Roman Sionis, also known as Black Mask, in Birds of Prey. The actor is slated to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in an upcoming Disney+ series, but as with Giancarlo Esposito, fans would almost certainly not complain about seeing Ewan McGregor in more Disney-related projects.

Keith David Keith David was going to appear in Marvel's New Warriors, but the project was ultimately canceled, so the actor has not yet been in an MCU property. However, he has lent his talents to many comic book-based television series. The Green Goblin's voice adds a lot to the character on-screen.

And through many of the most iconic roles performed by Keith David, he has used his incredible voice acting skills for a variety of characters, some of whom are heroic and others that are villainous, like Dr.

Facilier in The Princess and the Frog. His fabulous performance in this film gives a more menacing feel to the character, which shows part of what he could bring to a role as the Marvel villain. Antonio Banderas Antonio Banderas has been referenced in the MCU before, with Scott Lang naming an ant "Ant-tonio Banderas," but the actor would have a lot more to offer the franchise if he were to appear in the films.

For decades, Banderas has impressed audiences with the characters he has inhabited. RELATED: 10 Best Non-Superhero Movie References In The MCU From performances in the Spy Kids franchise to Interview with the Vampire, Banderas adapts excellently to every film he is in.

He has shown his abilities extensively, and he would be fantastic if he were to be cast as the Green Goblin. Michael Shannon Some of Michael Shannon's most well-known roles are green goblin actor some of his most villainous. Playing such characters as General Zod in Man of Steel and Richard Strickland in The Shape of Water, Shannon has displayed his talents for portraying antagonistic characters in captivating ways.

His performances always feel believable, which is what helps to make many of the villains he plays so compelling. If he was in the role of the Green Goblin in the MCU, Michael Shannon would surely bring this same element to his performance. Cillian Murphy Cillian Murphy is no stranger to comic book movies, playing the role of Scarecrow in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.

More recently, he has been highly regarded for his portrayal of Thomas Shelby in Peaky Blinders. Shelby is a complicated character, and Murphy shows Thomas' best and worst traits in a grounded fashion, allowing audiences to observe his complexities in a more realistic way. His ability to communicate these characteristics and his other incredible acting talents would make Murphy a wonderful candidate for the Green Goblin.

John Cho Though he is perhaps best known for his more comedic roles, such as the titular Harold in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, John Cho has shown a diverse range of genres he can excel in. With riveting performances in films such as Searching, Cho has displayed his acting abilities in a variety of areas. Many fans have wanted to see him in the MCU for some time, and although a role as the Green Goblin would be very different from what audiences are used to from him, he has the skills to give a phenomenal performance.

The Performing Garage in SoHo, New York City, the home of the experimental theatre company The Wooster Group, which Dafoe co-founded William James Dafoe [2] was born on July 22, 1955, in Appleton, Wisconsin. [3] [4] [5] One of eight children of Muriel Isabel (née Sprissler) (November 29, 1921 – September 14, 2012) and Dr. William Alfred Dafoe (July 21, 1917 – November 21, 2014), [6] [7] he recalled in 2009: "My five sisters raised me because my father was a surgeon, my mother was a nurse and they worked together, so I didn't see either of them much." [8] His brother, Donald Dafoe, is a transplant surgeon and researcher.

[9] He has English, French, German, Irish, and Scottish ancestry. [10] His surname, Dafoe, is the Anglicized version of the Swiss Thévou. In high school, he acquired the nickname Willem, [11] which is the Dutch version of the name William. [12] During an interview he explained that about half of the Dafoe family puts the emphasis on the first syllable of their surname, and the other half on the second.

Only after becoming an actor, he took the second interpretation as his stage name. [13] After attending Appleton East High School, Dafoe studied drama at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, [14] but left after a year and a half to join the experimental theater company Theatre X in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, before moving to New York City in 1976.

[12] There he apprenticed under Richard Schechner, director of the avant-garde theater troupe The Performance Group, where he met and became romantically involved with Elizabeth LeCompte. She, with her former romantic partner Spalding Gray and others, edged out Schechner and created the Wooster Group.

[12] Within a year Green goblin actor was part of the company. [15] Dafoe would continue with the Wooster Group into the 2000s. [16] Career [ edit ] See also: Willem Dafoe filmography and List of awards and nominations received by Willem Dafoe 1980s [ edit ] Dafoe began his film career in 1979, when he was cast in a supporting role in Michael Cimino's epic Western film Heaven's Gate.

[17] Dafoe was only present for the first three months of an eight-month shoot. [18] His role, that of a cockfighter who works for Jeff Bridges' character, was removed from a majority of the film during editing but was visible during a cockfight scene. [19] Dafoe did not receive a credit for his work on the film. [19] In 1982, Dafoe starred as the leader of an outlaw motorcycle club in the drama The Loveless, his first role as a leading man.

The film was co-directed by Kathryn Bigelow and Monty Montgomery and paid homage to 1953 film The Wild One, starring Marlon Brando in a similar role. [20] Following a brief appearance in the horror film The Hunger (1983), Dafoe again played the leader of a biker gang in Walter Hill's 1984 action film Streets of Fire. His character in the film served as the main antagonist, who captures the ex-girlfriend of a mercenary, played by Diane Lane and Michael Paré, respectively.

Janet Maslin of The New York Times felt there were no great performances in the film, but praised Dafoe's "perfectly villainous" face. [21] Dafoe starred alongside Judge Reinhold in Roadhouse 66 (1985) as a pair of yuppies who become stranded in a town on U.S.

Route 66. [22] Later in 1985, Dafoe starred with William Petersen and John Pankow in William Friedkin's thriller To Live and Die in L.A., in which Dafoe portrays a counterfeiter named Rick Masters who is being tracked by two Secret Service agents. [23] Film critic Roger Ebert commended his "strong" performance in the film. [23] Dafoe's sole film release of 1986 was Oliver Stone's Vietnam War film Platoon, gaining him his widest exposure up to that point for playing the compassionate Sergeant Elias Grodin.

[24] He enjoyed the opportunity to play a heroic role and said the film gave him a chance to display his versatility, saying "I think all characters live in you. You just frame them, give them circumstances, and that character will happen." [25] Principal photography for the film took place in the Philippines and required Dafoe to undergo boot camp training. [26] Los Angeles Times green goblin actor Sheila Benson praised his performance and found it to be "particularly fine" to see Dafoe green goblin actor "something other than a psychopath".

[27] At the 59th Academy Awards, Dafoe was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, but the statuette was awarded to Michael Caine (for the 1986 film Hannah and Her Sisters). [28] Dafoe provided his voice to the documentary Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam (1987) and, in 1988, Dafoe starred in another film set during the Vietnam War, this time as Criminal Investigation Command Agent Buck McGriff in the action thriller Off Limits.

[29] [30] His second release of 1988 was Martin Scorsese's epic drama The Last Temptation of Christ, in which Dafoe portrayed Jesus. The film was adapted from the novel of the same name and depicts his struggle with various forms of temptation throughout his life. Like the novel, the film sparked controversy for departing from the biblical portrayal of Jesus and was branded as being blasphemous. [31] Dafoe's performance in the film was widely praised, however, with Janet Maslin opining that Dafoe brought a "gleaming intensity" to the role.

[32] In his final release of 1988, Dafoe starred opposite Gene Hackman in the crime thriller Mississippi Burning as a pair of FBI agents investigating the disappearance of three civil rights workers in fictional Jessup County, Mississippi during the civil rights movement.

Variety praised Dafoe's performance, writing, "Dafoe gives a disciplined and noteworthy portrayal of Ward", although they felt it was Hackman "who steals the picture". [33] As with The Last Temptation of Christ, the film was the subject of controversy, this time among African-American activists who criticized its fictionalization of events. [34] Dafoe was briefly considered for the role of the super-villain the Joker in the Tim Burton-directed superhero film Batman (1989), as screenwriter Sam Hamm noticed physical similarities, but was never offered the part that eventually went to Jack Nicholson.

[35] Dafoe starred in the drama Triumph of the Spirit in 1989 as Jewish Greek boxer Salamo Arouch, an Auschwitz concentration camp inmate who was forced to fight other internees to death for the Nazi officers' entertainment.

[36] It was filmed on location at Auschwitz, the first major film to do so. [36] While the film was negatively received, Dafoe's performance was lauded by some critics; Peter Travers of Rolling Stone felt he gave a "disciplined performance" and Janet Maslin thought he was "harrowingly good".

[36] [37] Dafoe reunited with Platoon director Oliver Stone for a small appearance in the biographical war drama Born on the Fourth of July (1989). Dafoe played a paraplegic, wheelchair-using Vietnam veteran who befriends the film's subject Ron Kovic (played by Tom Cruise), another paraplegic veteran. [38] 1990s [ edit ] Dafoe made a cameo appearance in John Waters' musical comedy Cry-Baby (1990) as a prison guard who gives a brief lecture on values to the title character, who is played by Johnny Depp.

Rita Kempley of The Washington Post found the scene to be one of the film's highlights. [39] In the same year, Dafoe co-starred in David Lynch's crime film Wild at Heart with Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern.

Dafoe played a criminal who engages in a robbery with Cage's character before demonstrating his dark side. [40] He wore fake, corroded teeth and grew a pencil moustache that bore resemblance to his previous collaborator, John Waters.

[40] Entertainment Weekly critic Owen Gleiberman felt the role proved Dafoe as a "master of leering, fish-faced villainy". [40] In 1991, Dafoe starred with Danny Glover and Brad Johnson in the action film Flight of the Intruder. The film follows a pair of United States Navy pilots, played by Dafoe and Johnson, who scheme and participate in an unauthorized air strike on Hanoi.

[43] In his next starring role, Paul Schrader's drama Light Sleeper, Dafoe played John LeTour, a lonely, insomniac, New Yorker working as a delivery man for a drug supplier, who is played by Susan Sarandon.

Roger Ebert praised Dafoe's "gifted" portrayal of LeTour and Owen Gleiberman opined that "even when the film doesn't gel, one is held by Willem Dafoe's grimly compelling performance." [44] [45] Dafoe next starred in the erotic thriller Body of Evidence (1993) with Madonna. The story concerns a lawyer, played by Dafoe, who engages in a sadomasochistic sexual relationship with the woman he is representing in a murder case.

The film was panned by critics and performed poorly at the box office, with some audience members laughing during the sex scenes. [46] In his review of the film, Vincent Canby felt that Dafoe lacked sensuality in the role. [47] Later in 1993, Dafoe appeared in a supporting role as Emit Flesti (an anagram of Time Itself) in the German fantasy film Faraway, So Close!, directed by Wim Wenders.

[48] Dafoe then co-starred in the spy thriller Clear and Present Danger (1994), an adaptation of the Tom Clancy novel of the name starring Green goblin actor Ford as CIA operative Jack Ryan.

[49] Dafoe portrayed the poet T. S. Eliot in the drama Tom & Viv (also in 1994), which tells the story of Eliot and his first wife, Vivienne Haigh-Wood Eliot, who was played by Miranda Richardson. The film was met with a mixed reception from critics, although Green goblin actor James of The New York Times felt that Dafoe's "stunningly sharp, sympathetic portrait raises the film above a script that is full of serious holes and stilted dialogue".

[50] In 1995, he played an 18th-century writer in the period drama The Night and the Moment. [51] "I really made a conscious effort to mix it up, not because in itself it's not the job of an actor to do all different things, but for me that's what I'm interested in.

You've got to be careful because you've got to work with what you have, not just for vanity's sake, but I think the best part of being an actor sometimes is the opportunity to transform yourself superficially, and deeply." —Dafoe on his avoidance of being typecast as a villain, 1998 [52] In his first of three film appearances in 1996, Dafoe made a cameo appearance as an electrician in the biographical drama Basquiat.

[53] Next, he played a Canadian Intelligence Corps operative in the romantic war drama The English Patient, which starred Ralph Fiennes as desert explorer Count László Almásy.

The English Patient was filmed in Tuscany, where Dafoe said he particularly enjoyed the "quiet moments in the monastery between shoots". [54] In the period drama Victory—which was filmed in 1994 and premiered in Europe in 1996, but was not released until 1998—Dafoe played a European living on an island in the Southeast Asia who becomes the target of redemption after preventing a woman, played by Irène Jacob, from being raped.

[55] In 1997, Dafoe returned to playing a villainous role in the action thriller Speed 2: Cruise Control, expressing the necessity of appearing in both independent and blockbuster films. [56] The film starred Sandra Bullock and Jason Patric as a couple vacationing on a luxury cruise that has been hijacked by Dafoe's character, Geiger, a hacker that has programmed the ship to crash into an oil tanker.

Speed 2 was met with overwhelmingly negative reviews from critics, [57] with Dafoe himself receiving a Razzie Award nomination for Worst Supporting Actor. [58] For his next film, Affliction (1997), Dafoe worked with Paul Schrader for a second time, playing the brother of Nick Nolte's character and served as the film's narrator. [59] Also in 1997, Dafoe took on a voice acting role in an episode of the animated sitcom The Simpsons titled " The Secret War of Lisa Simpson", voicing the commandant of a military academy that Bart and Lisa Simpson are attending.

[60] Following a villainous supporting role green goblin actor the romantic mystery drama Lulu on the Bridge, [61] Dafoe starred alongside Christopher Walken and Asia Argento in Abel Ferrara's cyberpunk drama New Rose Hotel in 1998. It follows X (Dafoe) and Fox (Walken), a pair of corporate raiders attempting to lure a Japanese scientist from one megacorporation to another.

Although the film was largely dismissed by critics, [62] critic David Stratton found there to be "compensation" in the performances. [63] In 1999, Dafoe gave a supporting performance in David Cronenberg's Existenz, a science fiction thriller in which he played a gas station owner named Gas. [64] Later in the year, Dafoe starred in the action film The Boondock Saints. He played an eccentric, gay FBI agent assigned with investigating a series of murders committed by the MacManus twins (played by Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus) who are acting as vigilantes in Boston, Massachusetts after an act of self-defense.

The Boondock Saints was negatively received by film critics, largely for its extreme violence and lack of emotional depth, though some critics praised Dafoe's role in the film. [65] [66] The film performed poorly at the box office, green goblin actor has since been branded as being a cult film.

[67] 2000s [ edit ] Dafoe's portrayal of Max Schreck ( pictured) in Shadow of the Vampire (2000) earned him a second Academy Award nomination In his first film of the 2000s, Dafoe was featured in a supporting role in American Psycho (2000) as a private investigator investigating the disappearance of a co-worker of Patrick Bateman (played by Christian Bale), an investment banker who leads a double life as a serial killer.

The film delves into fiction when, over the course of Nosferatu 's production, the cast and crew come to discover that Schreck is actually a vampire himself.

Much of the film's critical praise went to Dafoe; Roger Ebert wrote that Dafoe "embodies the Schreck of Nosferatu so uncannily that when real scenes from the silent classic are slipped into the frame, we don't notice a difference". [70] The Chicago Reader critic Jonathan Rosenbaum opined felt the film's "only redeeming quality" was Dafoe's "enjoyably over-the-top, eye-rolling performance". [71] Dafoe received numerous awards and nominations for his performance, including his second Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor nomination.

[72] Dafoe took on two leading roles in 2001, both of which were as priests.

[110] Dafoe appeared in seven films in 2009, the first of which was in Lars von Trier's experimental film Antichrist. Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg played a couple whose relationship becomes increasingly sexually violent and sadomasochistic after retreating to a cabin in the woods following the death of their child. The film received a polarized response from critics and audiences, [111] receiving both applause and boos at the Cannes Film Festival and was called the "most shocking movie" to be shown at the festival because of its graphic sex scenes.

[112] [113] Roger Ebert commended Dafoe's and Gainsbourg's performances as being "heroic and fearless". [114] During an interview with L Magazine, it was revealed Dafoe had a stand in for green goblin actor where his character's penis was on screen as his own was too big.

[116] [117] Dafoe played a former vampire who has a cure that can save the human species in the science fiction horror film Daybreakers, which starred Ethan Hawke as a vampire hematologist.

The film garnered a poor reaction critics, with a reviewer for Paste stating "there's only so much depth [Dafoe] can bring to such a shallow character". [128] Dafoe then starred in the Australian drama The Hunter, playing a professional hunter who travels to Tasmania to hunt down the world's only remaining thylacine. Critic Stephen Holden wrote in his review of the green goblin actor, "Even in the "toughest, most macho roles.

[Dafoe] retains a tinge of Christ-like sweetness and vulnerability". [129] In 2011, Dafoe began narrating a series of television commercials for the Greek yogurt company Fage and starred in a Jim Beam commercial titled "Bold Choices".

[149] Dafoe once again collaborated with Ferrara on the drama Pasolini, in which he played Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini during his last days before his murder in 1975.

[152] His performance in the film was generally well received by critics, including Peter Travers who felt he provided "ample compensation".

[153] Dafoe made his second guest appearance in the animated sitcom The Simpsons in November 2014, voicing a new school teacher who bullies Bart Simpson profusely.

The film and his performance received enormous critical acclaim, with The Washington Post critic Ann Hornaday writing that "Dafoe delivers his finest performance in recent memory, bringing to levelheaded, unsanctimonious life a character who offers a glimmer of hope and caring within a world markedly short on both".

[162] Dafoe earned his third Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor nomination, as well as nominations at the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and BAFTA Awards.

It had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, where the film and Dafoe's performance received high praise.

[172] Dafoe portrayed sled dog breeder, trainer, and musher Leonhard Seppala in Togo.

2020s [ edit ] Dafoe appears in Wes Anderson's ensemble period comedy The French Dispatch and Guillermo del Toro's neo-noir psychological thriller Nightmare Alley, which were both released in 2021, and Robert Eggers's historical thriller The Northman, set for a 2022 release date.

And then I finally found one, where a friend of mine just started calling me "Willem". Like a lazy way of saying William.

I didn't even know how to spell it. And the irony was by the time I became an actor, to go back to my birth name felt like a stage name.

No other villain has inflicted the level of pain and tragedy on Peter Parker that Norman Osborn has. It's no surprise many other villains have tried to claim the title for themselves or how frequently the original Goblin appears in adaptations. RELATED: Spider-Man No Way Home: Every Villain, Ranked By Introduction Looking across the major adaptations of Spider-Man that feature the Goblin, including film and animation, there have been many performers in the role.

While some mediums may have an unfair advantage over others, some Green Goblin actors perfectly captured the essence of Spider-Man's archenemy. Spider-Man's first foray into animation was the 1967 cartoon produced by Grantray-Lawrence Animation then Krantz Films. The series is infamous for its low budget, which is clear in both its animation and performances.

Across three appearances as the Goblin, Len Carlson does a fairly generic screechy villain voice. The Goblin is also vastly different from the comic book version, and instead of a maniacal mastermind, he's a dimwitted robber obsessed with magic. Combined with no reference to his human identity, the implication is that he's an actual Goblin.

Spider-Man Unlimited stranded the hero on "Counter-Earth," populated by unusual versions of his usual supporting cast. This version of the Goblin is a super hero, for one thing. His real name is Hector Jones, and instead of a glider, he traverses with mechanical wings. Voiced by Rino Romano (who also voiced Spider-Man himself), the Goblin's eccentricities are played more for comedy than menace.

Like Unlimited itself, Romano's performance is the black sheep oddball in the Goblin green goblin actor. The Marvel cartoons of the 1980s were only a marginal improvement on the cheapness of the 1960s. The Green Green goblin actor was the debut villain in Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends. This iteration was also one of the first to play up the Jekyll & Hyde dichotomy within the villain.

This Norman Osborn transforms into the Goblin versus just wearing a costume. However, Dennis Marks gets scant screen-time as Osborn, and his Goblin voice is too high-pitched to be scary. Chris Cooper briefly played Norman Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but he never got a chance to suit up as the Goblin.

Instead, his son Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) becomes the Green Goblin, even usurping comic Norman's claim to fame as Gwen Stacy's murderer. RELATED: 10 Movies That Killed Their Franchise Before his heel transformation, DeHaan plays Harry as too obviously disturbed and unlikeable, and he gets only scant screen-time suited up as the Goblin. The grotesque (in a bad way) design does little favors for DeHaan's performance. His cackle isn't too shabby, though. Despite its name, Ultimate Spider-Man took only slight influence from Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley's acclaimed comic.

One of the comic's ideas that the series did use was having Norman Osborn physically mutate into a Goblin-like green goblin actor. Steven Weber voiced both sides of the character. While he does a passable job capturing Norman's smarm, his Goblin voice is a fairly generic "deep bad guy voice." The most recent animated Goblin featured in Disney XD's Marvel's Spider-Man.

Puzzlingly, this Norman Osborn (voiced by Josh Keaton) green goblin actor never actually referred to as "The Green Goblin." Instead, he first assumes the Hobgoblin identity from his son Harry (the opposite of the usual succession) then becomes the Dark Goblin in Season 3, subtitled Maximum Venom.

Keaton isn't bad in the role, but for viewers familiar with his past voice-work as Spider-Man himself, there's a dissonance that can be hard to overcome.

Insomniac Studios' Spider-Man took a different route with Osborn. Instead of the Green Goblin or an industrialist, he's New York City's authoritarian mayor, and just as much a thorn in Spider-Man's side as usual. Mark Rolston is quite good as Osborn, disarming in one breath and sinister in another. Rolston clearly uses his previous experience voicing Lex Luthor on Young Justiceas the basis green goblin actor his Osborn. However, since he hasn't yet voiced the Goblin, he can't be ranked any higher.

Neil Ross had two chances to voice the Goblin. The better of his performances is in 1994's Spider-Man. Ross spends the first two seasons voicing Norman Osborn before reprising the Goblin in Season 3.

Like some past performances, his Goblin voice is a bit too high-pitched to be scary. It's rather reminiscent of the one Alan Oppenheimer used for Skeletor on He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe, and it pales in comparison to Mark Hamill's cool, menacing performance as the Hobgoblin.

However, Ross does succeed at making Osborn and the Goblin sound like distinct entities. This was a vital attribute, since this series played up the Goblin as an alternate personality of Osborn's. While The Green Goblin's true identity is common knowledge, The Spectacular Spider-Man chose to replicate the original mystery surrounding the character, and he was only unmasked in the series finale, "Final Curtain." It's a testament to the series' writing that they still created a compelling mystery and, thanks to some misdirection, the inevitable conclusion didn't always seem that inevitable.

Different voice actors were used for Norman Osborn and the Goblin to preserve the uncertainty, as Alan Rachins played the former while Steve Blum played the latter. Alan Rachins is reliably good as the stern and aloof Norman, but Blum is an outright scene-stealer and the first voice actor to successfully make the Goblin scary.

Willem Dafoe is one of the greatest living actors, and he's pitch-perfect as both Norman and the Goblin in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. He conveys the differences between the more timid Norman and the animated Goblin with intonations and body language — it's never subtle, but he's not trying green goblin actor be.
