'Amazing Spider-Man' sequel testing for Harry Osborn role




It's time to start casting the much-too-soon sequel to the much-to-soon reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, so what does Hollywood want to do? They want to cast Harry Osborn, son of Norman Osborn, for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Depending on whether you get him after smoking enough weed or not, James Franco may want to do it again, you know.

Four actors have been picked to test for the role opposite Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, the Hollywood Reporter says. Snow White and the Huntsman's Sam Claflin; My Week With Marilyn's Eddie Redmayne; LOL's Douglas Booth; and Hatfields & McCoys actor Boyd Holbrook all are under consideration.

Besides all this, they've added Shailene Woodley to play Mary Jane Watson. That's in case they hadn't done enough to remind us the Sam Raimi series was far superior in every way.
