Dane Dehaan Talks THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2; Says the Script is ‘Epic’ and ‘People Are Going to Love it’

     March 9, 2013


With director Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 currently filming on the streets of New York City, over the past week we’ve posted a ton of set photos.  However, if you’ve been wondering why most of the set photos only feature Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, it’s because a lot of the cast hasn’t started filming.  But according to Dane Dehaan, who I spoke to earlier today for Derek Cianfrance’s fantastic movie The Place Beyond the Pines, that’s about to change because he starts filming “super soon.”  As most of you know, in the Spider-Man sequel, Dehaan plays Harry Osborn and Chris Cooper will be playing his father, Norman Osborn.  As a big fan of both actors, I think they’re going to nail the roles.  In addition to revealing his first day on set is coming up, I was also able to ask Dehaan what he thought about the script.  He told me:

“It’s awesome.  It really is.  It’s human and it’s deep and it’s also epic and still a huge superhero movie.  But it all makes sense and it all comes from very human elements and I think people are really going to love it.”

Hit the jump to see Dehaan talk about Spider-Man 2.

Before going any further, if you haven’t seen Dehaan’s previous performances, I strongly suggest checking out Chronicle or Lawless.  His work in both films is fantastic.  In addition, I’ve also seen Kill Your Darlings and The Place Beyond the Pines, which further showcase his acting chops.  He’s definitely an actor you’re going to see a lot of in the future.

Anyway, here’s Dehaan and I talking about the Spider-Man sequel.  Look for the full interview closer to the release of The Place Beyond the Pines, which is March 29th.
