Dane DeHaan Is the New Harry Osborn in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Mark Webb Twitter

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but when that picture is a photo of the new Harry Osborn in the upcoming superhero blockbuster 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2," it's more accurate that a picture is worth about 10,000 re-tweets.

So are you ready to meet the once and future Green Goblin?

That charming young fellow, it turns out, will be played by Dane DeHaan, who is probably best known to audiences for his role in the surprise hit "Chronicle" earlier this year. He also had parts in period pieces "Lawless" and "Lincoln" this fall, making 2012 a pretty darn good year for people named Dane DeHaan.

Of course, it helps that DeHaan is an absolute dead ringer for a "Titanic"-era Leonardo DiCaprio (seriously, check out the photo director Marc Webb tweeted to announce the casting decision), which should help fans forget heartthrob James Franco, who memorably played Harry Osborn in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy last decade.

So will DeHaan's Osborn follow Franco's path to the dark side and become Spidey's arch-enemy the Green Goblin in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2?" It's too early to say, but one thing is for sure: One look at this photo and your Spidey sense isn't the only thing that will be tingling. Let the re-tweeting commence.
