Dane DeHaan of Chronicle Is Harry Osborn in SpiderMan 2

Director Marc Webb announced that Chronicle star Dane DeHaan will play Peter Parker’s friend and future nemesis in the Sony sequel.

In addition to DeHaan, actors Alden Ehrenreich and Brady Corbet were also up for the role. DeHaan had his breakout role earlier this year, in Fox’s found-footage superhero hit Chronicle. James Franco previously played the character in Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man films.

Webb broke the news via Twitter, which was quickly followed by an official press release which confirmed that DeHaan will play the role in the second chapter of a planned trilogy.

The new Harry Osborn will join Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx and Oscar-nominee Shailene Woodley in the film, alongside Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
