A creepy animatronic Green Goblin mask was built for Sam Raimi's Spider-Man before it was scrapped. Here's why the filmmakers opted not to use it.
It’s pronounced Paw-rick, not Pad-raig. Now that’s out of the way, a brief introduction. Padraig has been writing about film online since 2012, when a friend asked if he’d like to contribute the occasional review or feature to their site. That part-time hobby soon blossomed into a career when discovered he really loved writing about movies, TV and video games – he even (arguably) has a little bit of talent for it. He’s written words for Den of Geek, Collider, Dread Central and Screen Rant over the years, and can discuss anything from the MCU - where Hawkeye is clearly the best character - to the most obscure cult b-movie, and his hot takes often require heat resistant gloves to handle. He's super modern too, so his favorite movies include Jaws, Die Hard, The Thing, Ghostbusters and Batman. You can follow him @i_Padds on Twitter, if you so wish.
