Michael Massee was credited as the Man in the Shadows in Amazing Spider-Man. In his short scene with Rhys Ifans as Curt Connors, he didn't show his face and only had about 3 lines. In that short amount of time, he sure got me intrigued as to who on earth the man in the shadows is. Many thought he would play a number of characters, from Osborn to Vulture to Mysterio. But will he return? I for one, would have loved to see him play Norman Osborn/Green Goblin. But now that Chris Cooper has been cast, that doesn't seem likely. However, I still hold by the belief that while Chris Cooper will likely make a great Osborn, Massee could possibly make a better Goblin. I for one, have never seen a Goblin-worthy performance from Chris Cooper. In other words, I've never seen him so psychotic that he's scary. At least not in the vein of Dafoe or Massee. Please see if you can prove me wrong. Massee on the other hand, well... watch this if you need some proof: [YT]Zjn3WqsvE_Q[/YT] Now, at that, I think that the two actors look similar enough to see a Norman/Goblin split personality shared between the two of them. He is taking a serum to reverse the effects of a fatal disease, I wouldn't be surprised if he looked a little different/younger/stronger/more insane. Heres a comparison: Or at the very least, Green Goblin's voice could be done by Michael Massee. Norman's body changes physically when he takes the Goblin serum. He gets stronger, faster. He changes mentally. He changes in almost every way, why wouldn't his voice change too? What do you think?
