Spider-Man 3: Willem Dafoe was seen on set and suspicion grows of the return of The Green Goblin
Spider-Man fans are still waiting for the imminent first trailer of No Way Home, which will undoubtedly confirm or deny some of the almost infinite rumors circulating about the film directed by Jon Watts. The latter point to Willem Dafoe returning as the Green Goblin from the original Sam Raimi trilogy. And not only that, but he will be the leader of The Sinister Six.
As reported by Collider’s Jeff Sneider on his latest podcast, the return of villains like Electro by Jamie Foxx, Doctor Octopus by Alfred Molina and quite possibly The Green Goblin by Willem Dafoe is not accidental nor will it be just a cameo, rather it is intended to introduce the Sinister Six within the Marvel Universe.
The insider claims that Spider-Man’s iconic group of enemies will be the main antagonists, with Norman Osborn being the “main villain” and will be made up of characters from both the Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire and the two films by The Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield. In addition to the three main villains, rumors also point to the return of the Sandman played by Thomas Hayden Church and the Lizard and Rhino versions (led by Rhys Ifans and Paul Giamatti, respectively) from The Amazing Spider-Man, thus completing the dangerous team of the Sinister Six.
