Dane DeHaan talks ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ and Harry Osborn storyline

This summer will offer the second chapter in the rebooted Spider-Man franchise. Chronicle star Dane DeHaan discusses joining the cast in an interview with Digital Spy, explaining his role as Harry Osborn and how that impacts Peter Parker.

He also sees Peter Parker for the first time in a long time; they were childhood friends. So it’s really about Harry having a friendship with Peter and an allegiance to Peter, but also being the heir apparent to Oscorp, and having to deal with that.

“It’s becoming very obvious that all of these villains are originating from within Oscorp, in one way or the other. There are things that Harry feels he owes Peter, and things he needs from Peter, there are things he feels he needs from Spider-Man, and then there’s his responsibility to Oscorp. It’s a very complicated storyline, really cool and dynamic.”

Peter Parker was a loner in the first film, so friendship will be a new piece of the character’s puzzle.

“…it’s a friendship that… I mean, they haven’t been friends for such a long time, but they definitely both feel like they used to be best friends, and ideally they would love to rekindle that friendship.”
