Willem Dafoe Says 'There's Plenty More To Do' With Green Goblin, Weighs In On 'Spider-Man 4' News

"Daybreakers" star Willem Dafoe dropped by Splash Page HQ yesterday to chat us up about the film, which hits theaters Friday (January 8). While he was here, we managed to sneak in a few questions about — you guessed it — the "Spider-Man" films and the villain that kicked off Sam Raimi's blockbuster, web-friendly franchise, Green Goblin.

Would he be up for making a return appearance? After all, no one stays dead in the comics world. And what about those "Spider-Man 4" production delays? The actor touched on all of it in our exclusive interview.


"It all depends on the story," said Dafoe of the likelihood that we'll see him again. "The Green Goblin, there's plenty more to do, because that's not so well defined. And the Norman Osborn character is a good, solid, half-comic, half-dramatic character, so I could always revisit that."

"I don't think about it so much," he added. "I like Sam Raimi. I read today that it might get pushed a little bit because they're fighting about screenplay issues, but who knows, who knows..."

Back in November, Dafoe was similarly open to the idea of returning for another go at the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, though hadn't heard from Raimi or anyone at Sony.

With disagreements over the film's villain rumored to be at the heart of the current "Spider-Man 4" delays, it's worth noting that at least one of Spidey's rogues is looking to take another swing at the wall-crawler. Heck, five more and we've got a Sinister Six.
