You and Felicity Jones are both kind of taking off right now, career-wise,  can you talk about working with her in the film?

Dane DeHaan: I think Felicity is a really kind, talented person. When I saw her in ‘Like Crazy’ I just thought she was so amazing. So I was really excited when she was cast in this.

Can you tell me anything about your two characters and your interactions?  Let me just preface this by saying she already said she is your love interest in this [film].

Dane DeHaan: Well Harry is a big womanizer you know so anybody that thinks they’re Harry’s love interest is wrong if she said that! [Laughs]

Well not to get her into trouble, but she actually said she’s “the Goblin’s girlfriend.”

Dane DeHaan: The Goblin’s girlfriend? That’s gross if she’s dating the Goblin, that’s disgusting. Not to judge… [Smiles]

What’s in locker 14? [Marc Webb] tweeted something on your birthday, a picture, a locker…

Dane DeHaan: oh I don’t know what that was. [Grins] You know what Andrew [Garfield] said earlier: he was like, ‘remember when people saw The Sixth Sense? And remember like at the end of ‘The Sixth Sense’…. wasn’t that awesome? When no one knew what was going to happen?’’

  1. I’m really hoping he becomes the Venom, I think he’d be perfect the role.

    • I agree.

  2. Exactly, especially after his performance in Chronicle

  3. If sony really wants to cash in on the shared universe trend, they would be wise to use ASM2 to launch a Venom series of movies, occassionally having a cameo of Spidey to keep the two series linked. Then just have him come back to help Spiderman against the sinister six in ASM(?). One of the main perks I can think of for a Venom trilogy is we would finally get to see Carnage.

  4. this dreck continues to get worse with each announcment, lol. it is a shame that captain america 2 cannot kickoff summer rather then another dreadful
    ultimate spiderman movie. but unfortunately there is no confidence that
    chris evans can pull in a huge numbers on first weekend in may, maybe the april release will change that for the CA movie.

    • what are you talking about?

      • I think he hates good movies or something.

        • I’m sure that Chris Evans and the new Captain America movie has all of Marvel’s confidence. The Winter Soldier script was all the rage before James Gunn came in and got everyone hyped for Guardians. Screenrant’s team brought this up in their podcast this week, but I do remember reading this in a few articles months ago at comicbookmovie.com. While it’s true that Feige has said they want Spider-man back in their stable, he’s also said on numerous occasions that they don’t root against other superhero movies.

          His argument goes something like, if one [superhero movie] does bad, the bad press sheds a negative light on the entire genre, which doesn’t help their efforts. Many are suspicious that he’s just trying to have good PR, but I think it’s a reasonable enough concern. For whatever reason, in spite of the numerous examples of high quality superhero movies, the genre still has a negative stigma. Beyond this, the Marvel brand is making a handsome profit from the Spider-man films. Even if it’s not the movie making branch of Marvel, all divisions of the company are working together to maximize profit. That would mean not putting one branch (their satellite collaborations) in direct competition with an other (their in house projects) in a way that would reduce profit.

  5. I like the modern take on how Peter & Harry become friends. If anyone doesn’t know, in the old books, Harry didn’t start off liking Peter. They got to become friends based on their relationships with their fathers. I think the way they’re handling it is great.

  6. does anyone think J. Jonah Jameson will be included in one of these movies

    • I imagine it will b the third one I really hope so I always loved him. I think that john slattery would b great for it

  7. That “Two Dudes” picture up there looks like it belongs in a movie called “Fruitville Station”!


    • No it isn’t. Harry becomes Venom in the Ultimate Universe.

      • The Ultimate Universe sucks.

      • No he doesnt. The only people to bond with the symbiote in the Ultimate Universe are Peter Parker and Eddie Brock

        Perhaps you are thinking of that train wreck of a cartoon that recently started. I wouldnt use that as a basis for anything

  9. No No No…don’t make Harry Venom.

    Here is what I don’t get. Many people ranted and raved about how topher grace was too small to be venom.

    Dehann is shorter and skinnier than Topher Grace.

    I do like Dehann as a pick for Harry though. And I would rather see him become Green Goblin.

  10. So Garfield introduced a hipster Parker and now Harry is going to be a hipster as well? Amazing Spiderman sucked, I would watch Spiderman 3 a hundred times over before watching that dreadful film again. Now with how idiotic Electro looked and with the hipster style apparently tainting all the main characters, I’m done and won’t be watching any more of this. I love Sony and all but they should have just given the rights back to Marvel and let them work their magic on the property rather than drag Spidey’s name and legacy through the mud like this. Today’s audiences are getting the worst possible form of such a great and legendary character and I feel sorry for them because of it.

  11. This movie will set the bar high

  12. The new actor for Spiderman is looking a lil feminine. Not sure if that metrosexual look is gonna fly on the big screen. How is a skinny lad like that gonna save us all?

    • Well, you know, the whole metrosexual hipster look is really in right now, with the guys. Many celebrities have been buying into the trend for the past few years. It’s a really lame time, where looking like a feminine pansy is somehow “cool”. 2010s suck.
