Will ‘THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2’ Movie Follow the Ultimate Route and Feature Harry Osborn Venom?

Director Marc Webb had to know what he was doing when he tweeted the particular image above as the Day #3 image, sending it off with birthday wishes to an undisclosed person.  It certainly didn’t take long for fans to come to the conclusion that he was giving a shoutout to actor Dane DeHaan (born February 6th), who will be playing Harry Osborn in the sequel.

This is the conclusion that came out of it:

In the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series, the similarities are a lot closer. The Venom symbiote is a creation of Doctor Octopus (working for Norman Osborn) based on a blood sample left behind by Spider-Man during a battle. That symbiote sought to be reunited with its genetic source (Spider-Man) but when rejected by Peter it found a new source: Harry Osborn.

Harry used the suit to become a new Spider-Man (to impress his father) but eventually the suit twisted him into becoming Venom. Harry-Venom would go on to attack his own father (Norman Osborn), then unite with his father (Venom and Green Goblin) to battle Spider-Man – but eventually Harry was “cured” by serum injected into him by Peter. One can easily see how this cartoon continuity could fit into the Amazing Spider-Man  movie universe.

Given that Marc Webb is highlighting this particular image (the #14 locker) with a birthday shoutout attached, the natural assumption is that Dane DeHaan – a rising star who made impressions in films like ChronicleLawless and Lincoln last year – has indeed been brought onboard to not only offer fans a different take on Harry Osborn (than what James Franco did with the character in the original trilogy), but also to bolster this pivotal character of Venom – possibly in anticipation of  the upcoming Venom movie from Chronicle director Josh Trank.

The following pictures are of Day #4 and #5:
