Marc Webb has recently begun production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In it we’ll have Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone reprising their roles as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, plus we’ll also have a few new faces from the Marvel universe appearing like Harry Osborn (Dane DeHann), Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Electro (Jamie Foxx).
Not too long ago Webb tweeted a picture that started to make large waves around the internet. The picture was of a locker that had the number 14 on it, which can in some ways be tied to that of the Venom suit. The fact that the picture also said happy birthday (because it was DeHaan’s birthday) also could tie into his character becoming Venom in the film.
I know he’s no Eddie Brock, but it would be a hell of a lot more interesting to see Osborn get the black goo than someone as pointless as Brock. That’s just me complaining because of Spider-Man 3 and not so much the cartoons or the comics.
Crave digs a little deeper:
That’s the same number as the locker in which Peter Parker and Eddie Brock found the Venom suit in the Ultimate Spider-Man comic books, in which the suit was an invention by their respective parents, intended to cure cancer. Eventually, the symbiote bonded to Brock, and if you know anything about Spider-Man whatsoever, you probably at least get the gist of what happened next. This, dear readers, is the locker in which Venom was born.
That is not, however, the significance of the hashtag “#happybirthday.” February 6 is the birthday of Amazing Spider-Man 2 co-star Dane DeHaan, who plays Harry Osborn in the sequel. Translation: “Happy Birthday, Dane DeHaan… Here’s your Venom suit.”
If we’re right (again, if Marc Webb isn’t just screwing with us), then Dane DeHaan would be the new Venom. And that makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? The son of the Green Goblin, friends with Peter Parker, who will eventually turn on the hero. With his roots in OsCorp and his best friend Spider-Man destined to turn against Harry’s father, Dane DeHaan seems like the perfect candidate for the Venom suit in the new franchise, and then get his own solo movie, courtesy of DeHaan’s old Chronicle director, Josh Trank.
