THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Concept Art Reveals Alternate Green Goblin Designs And Norman Osborn's Severed Head

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Concept Art Reveals Alternate Green Goblin Designs And Norman Osborn's Severed Head

A newly surfaced batch of concept art from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been revealed, and it offers up some wacky alternate takes on the Green Goblin and provides another look at Norman's head in a jar...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a terrible, terrible movie, but one of the biggest talking points was the Green Goblin's appearance. Played by Dane DeHaan (what happened to that guy?), Harry Osborn took on the villainous moniker long before his father had the opportunity to do so, and he looked...ridiculous? It certainly wasn't comic book accurate, anyway! 

Now, though, some concept art has been revealed by a number of artists who worked on the sequel, and it gives us a much better idea of how the villain could have ended up looking on screen. 

From weird masks to even more monstrous transformations and hi-tech bike helmets, the Green Goblin almost looked so much better...and a lot worse. We also get to see some different takes on The Rhino, crazy new suits for Spider-Man, and the containment unit that would have housed Norman Osborn's severed head (one of the weirdest creative decisions ever).

So, to check out these alternate designs, all you guys have to do is hit the "View List" button below!

Original concept art by Long Ouyang.

It appears as if it was always the plan to make Harry Osborn some sort of bizarre human/Goblin hybrid with cybernetic enhancements, and this version makes good use of that bizarre concept.
 

 

 

 


The resemblance here to the version of the Green Goblin we got in the original Spider-Man movie is hard to ignore, but Harry's monstrous face being contained beneath the mask is very cool. 
 


Well, this is horrifying. However, unlike the version we saw in the movie, this one is truly monstrous and would have actually looked pretty scary on screen (there are definitely monster movie vibes here).
 


This is pretty much the version of the Green Goblin we ended up getting in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and, well, he looks terrible. It's hard to believe this actually made it into the final cut of the film.
 


What we see here is obviously still a big departure from the source material, but he definitely looks better with that helmet. Oddly enough, it's hard to ignore how similar to the MCU's Vulture he looks!
 


A lot of work clearly went into creating this version of the Goblin, but it's honestly hard to say anything positive about this as it's neither as good as the regular or Ultimate version of the character. 
 

 

 


While these designs all incorporate that weird, deformed appearance Harry took on after taking the Goblin serum, the addition of a mask/helmet is definitely beneficial and makes him look cooler. 
 


In order to make it look like Harry had "Goblin ears," he was given some strange cybernetic implants, and here we get to see some of the work that went into creating those odd looking gadgets. 
 
Headstand - Artist: Long Ouyang

We've seen an official still of Norman Osborn's head in a jar, but this concept art gives us a better idea of the thought process behind putting his severed head in this containment chamber. 

Chances are we'll never know what Sony Pictures had planned for this particular plot thread, but it's thought that Norman would have been resurrected somehow. Where's his body, though?!
 
Rhino Open - Artist: Aaron Beck
 
Rhino - Artist: Aaron Beck

The movie's take on Rhino was also a little controversial and here we get to see some of the work that went into giving the villain a suit which basically transformed into an actual robotic rhino. 
 


If there's one thing fans did like about The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it was that comic accurate costume worn by the wall-crawler. Some maintain that it's the hero's best live-action suit even now. 
 

 

 


The Amazing Spider-Man made some big changes to Spidey's suit and it seems as if his costume could have gotten even weirder in the sequel have these designs actually been seriously considered.
 


Marvel Studios weren't the first ones to consider putting the web-slinger in a red and black suit, and it's fair to say that this looks pretty spectacular, especially with that elongated spider design.
