There are some further news report that Matthew McConaughey will play as Norman Osborn for the new upcoming Spider-Man film. But will he play as the Norman to become the Green Goblin or will it be a different version of Norman Osborn, because we have seen the character in the Sam Rami's Spider-Man trilogy and the Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man 2. Who knows he can appear in Captain America's Civil War, he can have a cameo and then appear again in the new Spider-Man that'll be coming in 2017.
Willem Dafoe played Norman Osborn/Green Goblin from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. Dafoe took the role very well to play as Norman Osborn but play as the Green Goblin brought in the mayhem of the cinematic marvel universe.
Chris Cooper did play the next Norman Osborn from Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 but only for a short time. His character had a bad disease that caused him to die.
For the deleted scene that Norman's head wasn't really explained, but he was suppose to be frozen and going to be the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 3 but it didn't happen.
Now it's McConaughey's turn to play the next Norman Osborn and which version of Norman he'll play as? We'll soon find out.
