Abandon this article, all ye’ who don’t like spoilers.
Don’t mind me. I’m just getting me Dante Alighieri on.
But back to the main point. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 After Credit Scene has leaked, and guess what? Massive Spoilers!!!
And now that you’ve all been warned, and those who actually like watching films as a holistic endeavor have abandoned the thread, let’s dive into it. Norman Osborn is a head. A head in a jar. Like President Nixon in Futurama, our favorite Green Goblin is nothing more than a cabeza in a high tech pickle solution.
If you don’t believe me, check it out for yourself.
In all fairness, that decapitated cranium could be a completely different character, but it does look a good bit like Chris Cooper’s Norman Osborn. More than that, the rest of the geeky interwebs, believe the face in the jar is Green Goblin’s, so I’m inclined to believe them.
Although, it could be Peter Parker’s father, Richard Parker. I know that doesn’t make much sense, but then again, neither does a lot of this nonsense in Marc Webb’s new Trilogy. If Richard Parker was the pickled head, why would Norman Osborn want him preserved?
I guess that brings us right back to the most likely candidate, Norman. Since only his head is secured in that super secret freezer, I’m tempted to think that his body was destroyed, which would make a smoother transition into the Ultimate Universe version of Green Goblin (who’s essentially a smaller, weaker Hulk). You know, because if Norman Osborn was a normal dude that just happened to transform into a giant green monster, that’d totally be too similar to Bruce Banner’s Avengers transformation. BUT… if Norman is a bodiless homie who can only survive when attached to a monstrous, Frankenstein-like corporeal form beneath that heavy head… well, that’d make a lot more sense.
