Green Goblin Suit to Resemble Iron Man Armor in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Previous reports about the look of Norman Osborn's alter ego were slightly off, with the iconic villain also taking a cue from Christopher Nolan's Catwoman.

Sony's recent announcement that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 were officially confirmed for 2016 and 2018 put a classic spin on the now in-production The Amazing Spider-Man 2. At first it seemed like the movie was stacked with far too many characters, and way too much action. Now its becoming clear that a strong narrative arc is being set up throughout all four movies, which means we'll be seeing stuff extended well into the future.

This should have fans sighing a breath of relief, as it means story arcs involving Rhino, Electro, and the Osborns don't necessarily need to be wrapped up in 2 hours and 20 minutes, with this saga taking a cue from the narrative arc on most TV shows nowadays. It also means we'll get some cool cliffhangers and teases at the end of both The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and The Amazing Spider-Man 3, and even possibly The Amazing Spider-Man 4 if the movie series goes on into the future (though Andrew Garfield, like Tobey Maguire, will get old one day and the part will be re-cast).

What isn't known at the moment is exactly how much Green Goblin, aka Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper) is going to be in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It was originally teased that Osborn wouldn't become the Green Goblin at all in the second movie, but our story from yesterday revealed that Green Goblin actually plays a key role in the epic final battle that will serve as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 climax, which will most likely end on a cliffhanger. Possibly Gwen Stacy's demise. Is she alive or Dead?

Comic Book Movie previously ran a description of Green Goblin's suit, or costume if you will. It was described as black armor with spikes, and green accents. And that it would look like Ultimate Green Goblin.

We now have a more accurate description of Green Goblin's suit of armor, and apparently the costume designers are taking both a nod from Tony Stark's Iron Man and Christopher Nolan's Catwoman, which uses tech to resemble iconic signatures that might otherwise be ridiculous in a more realistic setting.

As previously reported, Green Goblin's suit will be made up entirely of matte black armor that resembles a hi-tech motocross suit. The suit will remain open-faced, and there will be no helmet at all. Norman will have green hair that is spiked high up. In his ears, he will be wearing a Bluetooth device that will make it look as though he has the Green Goblin's signature pointed ears, the same way Selina Kyle's goggles worked in creating the illusion that she had cat ears. The back of the armor has a spine. At the moment, there are no green accents. From a distance, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Tony Stark's signature Mark XLII armor had been painted black.

What do you think? Does a helmet-less Green Goblin make sense? Or do you want to see something more traditional?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released May 2nd, 2014 and stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field. The film is directed by Marc Webb.

    The suit can't be any worse than the one from Spiderman...

    Green make-up and prosthetics is the best way to go. That would utilize the actor's facial expressions and give him more of the classic goblin style. I'm not a big fan of putting him in hard body armor.

    Wow there are so many haters in here that have no knowledge of comic book lore. This Amazing Spiderman story arc is going more along the lines with the comics. Yes Rami directed 3 SM films, but the only thing that tied his movies to the comis was the name Spiderman. TAMS is telling the "untold"(true) story of Peter Parker.

    Not re-cast for the fourth or the studio has gone by their word as they did with Mcquire, this story is still centered on Parker's school years, often he can grow out of it, as such Mcquires did within the first hour of Spiderman and another iteration of the green goblin will be intriguing.

    look when it comes down to it we can either have an improved Green Goblin armor (which is pratical for a Company to make) or we can have chirs Cooper look like Jim Carry in the mask

    Sony should've just gave Spiderman to Disney, I mean part one was pretty good, but C'MON, they're just killing themselves. I mean iron patriot just appeared in IM3, if Sony ever wanted Norman Osborn to one, which is too late.
