If he could recreate the tension of the Otto vs. Doctors scene in SM2 we'd be on to something special.

Raimi's Green Goblin just goes to show how what we might often expect from a certain matchup of director/source material can really end up way off the mark. Looking back at it, if I'd have followed this stuff like I do now, there's no way I'd believe we'd see a Goblin like that. I mean mostly as far as the costume design. I would've expected Raimi to do something a lot more physical and grotesque, like some of the alternate visions we've seen or even a bigger budget version of what the guy who made the "Peter's Web" fan film did. That's more what I would've expected Raimi to turn in.
I'm a bit fuzzy now tbh, but what I read was probably merely gossip. I don't remember anything confirmed for SM4 other than Vulture, and don't think Lizard was ever confirmed officially to be considered for SM2.

The Green Goblin looks like something that was lost in the shuffle. There was a lot Raimi's plate to get the first film off the ground, and sadly Gobby paid the price. I saw some interesting stuff floating around for Goblin designs (including those bizarre animatronics) but I'm guessing time and budget ran short. It's a real weak link in a solid film. The villains in the following films were great visually.

I never disliked the Green Goblin outfit. After seeing some of the previous designs and concept art, I feel a little disappointed, but overall I'm happy with the final product.

It's not too terrible. I would have prefered it if the suit was a dark purple to make it appear more like something the military would use; and then have Osborn attack it with neon green paint. Make it a little more crazy.

I think people give it **** because it reminds them of the Power Rangers.

Actually, I believe the joke is that the Goblin looks like a Power Ranger villian.

To be honest, it would be tricky to imagine the Lizard in a Raimi film only because he is established as a doctor in physics, they would have to retconn that or find a way around it. Other than that, it would have fitted like a glove, and in all fairness, I was kinda expecting the Lizard to make an apparition eventually, since Raimi loves the classic villians.
