Actor Willem Dafoe has as of late revealed exactly how he was persuaded to repeat his job as the Green Goblin in the forthcoming blockbuster, Spider-Man: No Way Home. Dafoe originally wore the Goblin mask back in 2002’s Spider-Man, which was the primary film in the set of three helmed by Sam Raimi and staring Tobey Maguire. While Dafoe’s performance in the film was met with much acclaim, most fans never expected to see Dafoe in the job again, as his character meets his end in the climax of the film after he is impaled on his own lightweight plane.
In a new meeting on the Spider-Man official YouTube page, Dafoe has revealed exactly what it took to persuade him to get back to the franchise. According to Dafoe, everything came down to the pitch. Dafoe admitted that his initial reaction to returning was that it was “pretty nutty”, but he proceeded to state that after speaking with director Jon Watts, he thought the idea “seemed as though loads of fun”. The actor wrapped up by referencing that what really attracted him to returning for the film was that there planned to be a different take on his character. It wouldn’t simply be a rehash of what was done in the 2002 film. See his full statement underneath:
Many fans have been profoundly anticipating the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home since the release of the primary trailer, desperate to see a portion of their favorite characters appear on the big screen indeed. With such high praise from so exceptionally acclaimed actors, it appears to be possible that fans won’t be disappointed with what the film has in store for them. With Dafoe himself stating that the characters will be not the same as fans may recollect them, it’s impossible to tell what to anticipate when Spider-Man: No Way Home hits theaters on December fifteenth.
