Former Green Goblin actor Willem Dafoe discussed whether or not he would be willing to return to the Spider-Man franchise for the MCU.
Sony’s first Spider-Man film was released in 2002 with Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker and Willem Dafoe as the wall-crawler’s arch-nemesis, the Green Goblin. While Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin was killed by his own glider at the end of the first Spider-Man film, the revered actor reprised his role for cameo appearances in both sequels.
Since then, Sony has launched a new series of Spider-Man films that are co-produced by Marvel Studios and set in the latter company’s shared a cinematic universe. During an interview with CinemaBlend, Willem Dafoe was asked if he would be willing to appear in the new Spider-Man movies and the actor appeared to at least be open to the idea:
“Oh god. Norman Osborn was a really fun role to play. I don’t know about that, I don’t know what they’re doing. That was then, this is now. Who knows?”
However, Willem Dafoe added that he can’t “wrap his head” around the possibility of returning to the Spider-Man series as he is currently finding interesting and new projects to work on:
“Now’s a really good time. I’m finding really interesting things to do. So… I can’t wrap my head around that question.”
