    That's why I said they should do a reverse Red Skull/Hugo Weaving mask like this:

    In real life the actor would wear prosthetics to look like the Green Goblin in the same way Weaving wore prosthetics to look like Red Skull, but in the actual film Norman would just be wearing a mast of that kind and if they ever do a reveal of him taking his Globin mask to show that he's Norman, it would look just like in that gif.

    Never knew Spidey fans were so against the idea of seeing a comic book accurate Green Goblin work in live action.

    I haven't seen anyone against that at all.

    Some people just have different interpretations of what comic-accurate is.

    Not against it, as long as they do it right.

    Really? I know we all have different ideas of what comic book accurate is, but it seemed like you were pretty against a comic accurate GG in general.

    Gimme the green and purple, the pointy hat, the rubber mask. That's what I wanna see. I don't wanna see the actors face or some static helmet.

    I'm not worried with GG's costume for now.
    Why? Well, because we probably won't see him suited up soon, but we'll probably see how Norman Osborn looks.

    Technically we shouldn't be worried at all, because worrying will not change what it will look like.

    But still.

    Anyway, found this on the interwebs-- haven't formed an opinion on it yet.

    Yeah, it's just a drawing, so what would that look like in real life?

    I think he means those giant handlebars on the glider. They make it look like a scooter.

    The problem with a hood is when he's flying, it would come off. I mean, that can happen even just walking into the wind with a hoodie. And, what's with the sword?

    TheGearMan is correct. God, he looks like a first grader on his way to the first day of school with those handlebars

    The hood could be fixed to the Mask. I think the sword makes him more reminiscent of folklore, which is something I think they should do.

    There's a much greater chance of Ock coming off as cheesy than Green Goblin. The more comic accurate they try to make him, the sillier he'll look. He'll have to be handled with the greatest of care.

    I want them to take the Batman Beyond approach, something techie, but still looks like regular spandex.
    The design used for Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon looks nice for a modern take on GG.

    It's not like I said that because I thought GG would be cheesy, and who says they have to make Ock exactly comic accurate?

    Make him one of Peter's teachers, or his tutor. Then make his alter ego the Master Planner, orchestrating several occurrences during the three movies, at first behind the scenes, but eventually shown in the forefront. Maybe throw a few curve balls in there that make it appear that the Master Planner is Norman Osborn, or the Kingpin, or someone else. Maybe have a figure assumed to be the Master Planner appear at the same time Octavious is teaching a class, or with Peter.

    Then reveal it to be Otto Octavious when he constructs his robotic arms. With his plan well in effect, he fights Spider-Man. Spider-Man eventually is able to disable whatever plan is going on, and with that distraction gone, he defeats Octavious.

    That's generally how I want it to go down. I want him to seem like the coolest, biggest bad, ever.

    Not sure if this really should be in the Villains topic, but since your statement was here, I'm typing a response here.

    For me suit wise I like it outfit material wise be like cap, skull, winter solider as u said before. They say part of outfit has Kevlar or armor plated for protection. Mask or helmet is the only area I don't know how to go about it. But all I want is a more true to comics look. When we do get to gobby again.

    I definitely want a more comic book accurate Goblin. I would go with those "imp" type masks you see on youtube and often post on these threads, where you can still see the actor's facial expressions. And as the costume, make it similar to how it was in the Marvel Knights series and the way Ramos draws it.

    I mentioned this because there were so many concerns about Goblin's appearance. In the comics, Ock's design is far more goofy than any of the Goblins. I'd be more concerned about how that will be handled than how Norman's costume might look.

    Actually ock is far more easier to do then goblin. As really in comics he mostly was business suits and lab jackets outfit. Only times like 90s getting the green armor like 90s toon did, or the more recent body she'll stuff. Where gobby has always been the gobby look with upgrades over the years.

    Yeah, Ock is much easier to pull off. Most of the time he's just wearing street clothes.
