Willem Dafoe says he would be open to another outing as Green Goblin in the Spider-Man universe.

In 2002, the actor received acclaim for his performance as Green Goblin / Norman Osboard in Spider-Man - the movie which helped to kickstart the superhero dominance of the box office that is still prominent today.

Nineteen years later, he would reprise the role in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which saw several villains from previous Spider-Man movies all descend on the universe in which Tom Holland is Peter Parker.

Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield both returned as Peter, while Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, Rhys Ifans and Thomas Haden Church came back as Electro, Doc-Oc, Lizard and Sandman respectively.

Green Goblin emerged as the major villain of the piece, though, and Dafoe was again praised for his performance. It seems like we could get more from him, too.

When asked by Inverse if he would return as Osborn again, he said:

“If everything was right, sure. I mean, that's a great role. I liked the fact that it's a double role both times. Twenty years ago, and fairly recently, both times very different experiences, but I had a good time on both.”

Will Tom Holland return as Spider-Man?

No Way Home ended with the entire world forgetting about the existence of Peter Parker, including his girlfriend MJ, and so it appeared that Holland's Spidey reached the end of the narrative cycle.

But, Marvel Studios president Kevin Fiege told Entertainment Weekly at the premiere of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania:

“All I will say is that we have the story. We have big ideas for that, and our writers are just putting pen to paper now.”

Franchise producer Amy Pascal said in 2021 that the plan was for Holland to return.

“This is not the last movie that we are going to make with Marvel – the last Spider-Man movie,” Pascal explained to Fandango about No Way Home.

“We are getting ready to make the next Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Marvel. We’re thinking of this as three films, and now we’re going to go onto the next three. This is not the last of our MCU movies."
