Major fake-out. Toward the end of November, outlets suggested that Sam ClaflinEddie RedmayneBoyd Holbrook and Douglas Booth were testing for the role of Harry Osborn in the upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. But, as it turns out, none of the aforementioned actors were selected for the part. Instead, Dane DeHaan (LawlessChronicle) is set to play Peter Parker’s best friend.

Director Marc Webb confirms via a simple tweet: “Meet Harry Osborn. @danedehaan.”

If you check out our friends at Just Jared Jr., you’ll notice Dane leaving a screen test with Andrew Garfield, who’s set to reprise his role as Spidey in #2. What’s not known, however, is the amount of screen time Andrew’s on- and off-screen girlfriend, Emma Stone, will get in the second installment, as her character, Gwen Stacy, gets the axe in the comic book series.

Dane’s confirmation comes after news that Shailene Woodley would be joining the Spider-Man cast as Peter Parker’s other love interest, Mary Jane Watson (formerly played by Kirsten Dunst in the Tobey Maguire-led franchise). Meanwhile, you can expect the last guy who played Harry Osborn, James Franco, on the big screen once again in 2013’s Oz: The Great and Powerful, portraying the infamous Wizard himself.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is slated for 2014. What do you think of the casting decisions so far? Who would you have picked to replace James Franco? And are you upset to see Emma’s character get the boot? Spill!
