Blaise and I went and saw Matthew Vaughn’s new film Kingsman: The Secret Service last night. There was a lot of hope that Vaughn, who has directed such films as Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class, could provide us with the first great movie of 2015 (January and February are dark times, my friends).

Yesterday we put together a list of 5 actors that could replace Andrew Garfield as the MCU’s Spider-Man. Today, we are going to continue that idea by throwing together a list of actors that could easily fit the villain role of Norman Osborn a.k.a. The Green Goblin. The Green Goblin is Spider-Man’s biggest rival and arch-enemy who is always pushing the web slinger to his limits. With a reboot in store, and Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal producing the 2017 standalone Spider-Man film, this villain will hopefully meet his full potential.

There’s definitely a better dramatic dynamic when Peter has to face off against his best friend turned bad, but Norman is the true Goblin king, and hopefully we get to see a longer lasting version of him this time around.
In the meantime, here are five awesome actors that could probably pull off some amazing Norman Osborn performances.
