Agreed 100%.It’s such a waste taking a brilliant, expressive actor like Willem Dafoe, casting him as an emotive character, and then putting an unmoving mask over his face. He has great, scenery-chewing moments as plain old Norman Osborn.
I always remember the rooftop scene when he’s monologuing at Spider-Man and you can kind of see him doing his full-on, wide-eyed thing through the eyeholes, but it’s mostly wasted as two masked characters talking. Like a Power Rangers episode where they’ve just dubbed over some licensed footage of masked superheroes.
Blows my mind Wolverine has yet to wear his suit in live actionIt was fine Willem Dafoe killed it in the role overall. Spider-Man in general was step forward with movie companies not being embarrassed to be associated with comics or being comic accurate. The X-Men and Fox refused to change throughout this time and still kept all their shit generic cause we don't want to be associated with what they come from. Deadpool started to be more comic accurate in the characters but it was too little too late.
Now that is terrifying.
Now this would have been cooler. I will always enjoy Raimi channeling more of his Evil Dead energy.
this one started as a design challenge. i wanted to make green goblins mask plausible
given that the oscorp technology was military based, i always found the spiderman 1 movie green goblin beyond absurd.
also it completely killed the charisma of facial acting by a perfectly chosen actor.
so i figured.. what if the whole mask is actually an actual glider flight helmet... and normie just went a bit gaga and added some embellishment to his own face XD
it just made the most sense. original movie helmet really killed any shance of preformance form a perfectly chosen actor.. and i just cant see norman osborn making his own movie quality prosthethic goblin mask XD... kinda think he might be a bit busy with oscorp n stuff XD
don't take this too seriously, this is just a bit of design fun brainfarts
This is the real criticism of the suit. It was an obstacle to performance, not an enhancement of it.
