Now before I continue with this let it be known that I loved [The Amazing Spider-Man 2](movie:508593) with all my heart. I don't think it deserved a 6.5 from IGN, and I don't think it deserved all the criticism it got from its fans. Also I absolutely love spider-man, he is my favorite superhero. All that said, let's continue.

We all know spider-man's greatest foe of all time is the green goblin. Marvel has made countless stories with the two characters that has left us fans both speechless and at the end of our seats, so it's no surprise Marvel brought the Green Goblin to the big screen to fight with our friendly neighborhood web head.

Dane Dehaan did a fantastic job as the Green goblin and as Harry Osborn, and i think we can all agree his Goblin was down right creepy to say the least. However, being the spider-man fan that i am, i couldn't help but feel cheated out of seeing a Norman Osborn Green Goblin. And even though there is talk of Norman returning i just don't see that to be possible. Here are my few reasons why:

1. The news reported his death on national television. Everybody knows he is dead so if he came back people would be shocked!! So this would mean if he was to return he would only be the goblin, Norman Osborn could never show his face.

2. A robot body and human head? There is a picture circulating the spider-man fan community of Norman Osborn's head frozen down in that vault.

To me this is a highly unlikely way to resurrect Norman for the same reason as #1. People would be shocked!! not only because he is alive but also because he is just a head, meaning once again he could only be the goblin.

3.They already messed up. In the original story, Normans goblin threw Gwen to her death causing spider-man to go after him. When spider-man finally reaches him, Norman ends up accidentally killing himself with his glider creating the hatred harry has for spider-man because he thinks spider-man killed his father. Eventually creating little goblin jr. in the first place.

Those are the main reasons i believe they cant resurrect NormanOsborn, ultimately creating an unfix-able mistake. Tell me what you think below!!
