Norman Osborn, also known as the Green Goblin, is the main antagonist of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, serving as the main antagonist of the 2002 superhero blockbuster film Spider-Man and the posthumous overarching antagonist of both its 2004 sequel Spider-Man 2 and its 2007 threequel Spider-Man 3. He also serves as the main antagonist of the 2021 Marvel Cinematic Universe film Spider-Man: No Way Home.

He is the founder and CEO of Oscorp Industries who, after being exposed to the Goblin Serum, was driven into insanity, causing his mind to create an alternative persona called the Green Goblin who kills anybody and destroys everything. He becomes obsessed with destroying Spider-Man and everything he cares about, becoming his archenemy and the one foe who keeps haunting him even after death. He is also the father of Harry Osborn, who befriended Peter Parker, as well as a close friend of Dr. Otto Octavius.

Years later, he is transported to a different universe through a spell performed by Doctor Strange, where he teams up with other supervillains, from the Raimiverse and Webbverse timelines, who shared the same fate. Not wanting to go back to a world where he is doomed to die, the Green Goblin resurfaces from Norman Osborn's psyche and decides to target this world's version of Spider-Man and his loved ones before trying to conquer his new home.

He was portrayed by Willem Dafoe, who also played Raven Shaddock in Streets of Fire, Eric Masters in To Live and Die in L.A., John Geiger in Speed 2: Cruise Control, Max Schreck in Shadow of the Vampire, Armando Barillo in Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Nikolai Diavolo in 007: Everything or Nothing, George Deckert in xXx: State of the Union, Lord Cob in Tales from Earthsea, Rat in Fantastic Mr. Fox, J.G. Jopling in The Grand Budapest Hotel, Jack Lassen in The Simpsons, Ryuk in Netflix's Death Note, Thomas Wake in The Lighthouse and Clement Hoately in Nightmare Alley.

Appearance

Green Goblin's suit.

Earth-96283

The Green Goblin has a shiny metal green and purple shaded suit that's pressed and manufactured where it fits the mask and glider and the person wearing it. The mask is a goblin mask with yellow eyes and an opening for his mouth. On his left leg is a button that slides the eyes of the mask up for Goblin to see. On his right arm is also a button for the glider to come. He has a metal green layer on his arms and chest without weighing him with heavier armor. On his wrists are buttons as well for the sleeping gas he used against Spider-Man. As for his abdomen, back and legs which instead of mostly green armor it is smooth out where the wearer can move easily and not be restricted.

Earth-TRN925

After being transported into Earth-199999, Green Goblin initially retains his typical appearance but soon Norman shatters his mask with a rock. He then dons a purple hoodie and a green jacket and pants while still wearing the Goblin suit underneath. When the Green Goblin retakes control of Norman's mind and battles Spider-Man throughout his apartment building, most of his clothing is tattered leaving him with his armor and purple hood. During the final battle at the Statue of Liberty, the Green Goblin wears a satchel, large goggles and rides a slightly redesigned glider.

Personality

Earth-96283

Unlike his host Norman Osborn, who is genuinely nice yet flawed man and remorseful for his actions, under the Green Goblin's influence, he is a sinister, malicious villain with a clear sadistic and cunning streak to boot. He is consistently cheerful, playful and merry in tone, in stark contrast to the viciousness and violence of his actions.

He takes everything in stride, having no value for human life, and finds amusement in wanting destruction. While he comes off as silly at first, the Green Goblin is constantly scheming, orchestrating incredibly elaborate plans. He also has a nihilistic sense of humor and what is entertaining to him is disturbing and horrific to others. He shows strong hatred towards the very concept of morality, believing it weakens people and makes them suffer and even goes as far as calling it an illness. In the novelization by Peter David, it's even made abundantly clear that in addition to wanting to become a god among Earth, wishing to be the "shepherd" to the "lambs", he intends to kill everyone within out of pure sadism after he has made them fear him, while also desiring respect from world leaders.

Furthermore, he can assess an opponent and accurately deduce their mindset and desires - exploiting their impulses for his own gains. His greatest strength lies in his ability to understand his opponents' capacity for empathy and love, and twist it in order to bend their will to suit his own needs. The Green Goblin is sharply perceptive of other people's mindsets, which makes him much more insidious and dangerous than other typical villains. While many villains fail to grasp empathy or believe in selflessness and kindness, the Green Goblin understands these qualities well and exploits them to psychologically break the will of others.

Earth-TRN925

Goblin has become more determined to cause mayhem and misery upon entering Earth-199999. He disregards Norman entirely, wishing to conquer this new world he's come across, unaware of the heroes other than Spider-Man here. Proof of his love of chaos, Goblin convinces Electro and Sandman to refuse their cures because their mutations make them "gods" capable of taking what they wish. He even puts all of Earth-199999 in fatal danger by releasing the spell Doctor Strange sealed away; every person in the multiverse who knows Peter Parker is Spider-Man would get pulled in, resulting in the collapsing of Peter's world.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Artificially Enhanced Physiology/Goblin Formula Enhancements: Norman decided to expose himself to a formula being developed by his company that was specifically made to create Super Soldiers for the military. As Norman's alternative personality, the Green Goblin is far stronger, durable, faster, and agile than Norman or any other normal human. However, the performing-enhancing gas resulted in him in his creation, where the Goblin often takes over whenever he wants and his voice also changes between the two personas. Osborn often sees his Goblin persona while staring in a mirror and have no memory of the Goblin's actions. The Goblin continued to be at the peak of his power until he was rehabilitated by the MCU Spider-Man who chose not to kill him, but by injecting him with an anti-serum that undid his mutation, ridding the Goblin persona and thereby restoring Norman's sanity.
    • Superhuman Strength: The Goblin is stronger than any normal human. He was strong enough to fight and overpower his Spider-Man, slamming him through multiple floors, and destroying an entire apartment building. He showed his strength when he punches a wall when Spider-Man ducks in the final battle and he busted the wall completely showing his strength in his blows. He also easily broke his helmet with a rock. Later in his battle with the alternate Spider-Man, he was able to take the young hero down and sent him smashing through the hotel walls.
    • Superhuman Durability: The Goblin's body is tougher and far more durable than a normal human's, which allowed him to withstand physical strikes attacks from an enraged Spider-Man without facing any fatal injury. However, he did have his limits, as his own glider was capable of impaling him and Spider-Man was eventually able to best him during their final confrontation. The Goblin also has far more stamina than any normal human, which allowed him to easily keep up with the likes of the powerful Spider-Man himself who was holding back his power.
    • Superhuman Speed: The Goblin is far faster and more agile than any normal human, being almost as fast as Spider-Man and being able to make maneuvers to best his opponents. The Goblin can also has incredible reflexes to react much faster than any regular human and can keep up with Spider-Man during his fight.
    • Superhuman Agility: Osborn is far more agile than any normal human, being able to use it to make maneuvers to best his opponents. Osborn can use his glider with little issues with his superhuman equilibrium and sense of balance and dodge certain attacks from an enraged Peter. Also because of the performance-enhancing gas Osborn experimented with, Osborn became capable of great athletic feats as seen during his battles with Spider-Man.
    • Superhuman Reflexes: Osborn can react much faster than any regular human. He can keep up with Spider-Man during his fight. Osborn even as far was able to block some of his attacks and react from an intense blow Peter attempted to give.
    • Superhuman Stamina: Osborn's musculature produces far fewer fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human, allowing him to easily keep up with the likes of the powerful Spider-Man himself who was holding back his power. Osborn continuously laugh and enjoy the every punches Parker gave and continued the fight.
    • Regenerative Healing Factor: The enhancing gas also gave the Goblin the ability to heal more quickly than a regular human, he did have his limits, as his own glider was capable of killing him in seconds.

Abilities

  • Genius-Level Intellect: As Osborn, the Goblin is an expert businessman, as he was able to create his company from the ground up in his universe. He was described as "brilliant" by the likes of Doctor Octopus, an accomplished scientist in his own regard. He was described as a "brilliant scientist" in the field of military research by Doctor Octopus. He helped Spider-Man in his endeavor to cure the other villains while Osborn was in control. The Goblin was also able to create with Osborn's company through the creation of several advanced weapons. His best work as an engineer includes his Green Goblin Armor, Glider, Pumpkin Bombs, and Razor Bats. He also helped Spider-Man fabricate an improved Neural Inhibitor Chip for Doctor Octopus utilizing Stark technology, which is technology far beyond what he has ever seen and still able to use it efficiently.
  • Master Martial Artist: While having no known formal training, the Green Goblin is a skilled hand-to-hand combatant and martial artist, using an aggressive and methodical fighting style, as seen when he repeatedly went toe to toe with his universe' Peter Parker and grappled with an alternate Spider-Man. The Goblin also has a retractable blade along the gauntlet of his armor. He managed to stab his Spider-Man in the back, although he failed to kill him. He can also throw his Pumpkin Bombs and Razor Bats with great accuracy. He threw one of his bombs into the Machina de Kadavus with considerable ease, destroying it to unleash the spell.

Weaknesses

  • Split Personality Disorder: The effects of the Formula caused mental instability in the test subjects before Norman decided to expose himself to the formula, after being exposed to the formula, he developed a personality different from his own that was thirsty for blood and vengeance who would be the Green Goblin.

Equipment

  • Green Goblin Armor: The Green Goblin wore a technologically advanced battle-suit that enhanced his strength and durability. The suit has control over the goblin glider, as he is able to remotely control it. His helmet can reveal his eyes while the rest of his face remains hidden when he wears it. Shortly after entering Spider-Man's universe, Norman smashed his helmet into bits in a futile attempt to escape the Goblin. He then received a purple sweater from MCU May Parker when he sought refuge at F.E.A.S.T., which became tattered as the Goblin took over and fought Spider-Man. The Goblin would later equip a satchel to hold many Pumpkin Bombs and Razor Bats and goggles to substitute for his broken helmet for the battle at Liberty Island.
    • Sleep Gas: The original Goblin suit was equipped with sleep gas that come out from the arms. He used this to kidnap Spider-Man when he attacked the Daily Bugle.
    • Retractable Blade: The Goblin suit became upgraded with a retractable blade. He attempted to use this weapon against MCU Spider-Man.
  • Pumpkin Bombs: The Goblin uses these specialized pumpkin-themed explosives/bombs to blow up or disintegrate his targets. He used one to destroy the Machina de Kadavus. These bombs are stored and can come out of his glider.

One of Green Goblin's bombs

  • Razor Bats: The Goblin uses small bat-shaped boomerangs. These Razor Bats are drones to slice his enemies, they could be used to sever Spider-Man's web-lines. The Razor Bats were a variant of Pumpkin Bomb that sprouted rotating wing-shaped razor blades when thrown, and were capable of flight and homing in on a target.

Goblin holding his trident

  • Goblin Trident: The Goblin utilizes a special weapon he briefly wields in his final battle with Spider-Man. His shiny trident was made specifically to kill Spider-Man.
  • Goblin Glider: The Goblin utilizes a special transportation device to fly where he wants to, store his weapons, and impale his enemies. A number of Pumpkin Bombs are stashed in the machine, which the Green Goblin can retrieve at any time. Osborn can also control the Glider remotely to either summon it or attack his foes with it. At the front of the Glider are sharp prongs which the Goblin can use to impale his enemies, usually with lethal results. He impaled and killed himself while trying to murder the Spider-Man native to his universe and managed to fatally injure May Parker, who was the aunt of an alternate Peter Parker. The Goblin himself was almost killed by his own glider once more by a vengeful MCU Parker but was stopped by the Goblin's native Spider-Man.

And they found you amusing for a while, the people of this city. But the one thing they love more than a hero... is to see a hero fail, fall. Die trying. In spite of everything you've done for them, eventually, they will hate you. Why bother? (...) Here's the real truth: there are eight million people in this city, and those teeming masses exist for the sole purpose, of lifting the few exceptional people onto their shoulders. You, me... we're exceptional. I could squash you like a bug right now... but I'm offering you a choice. Join me. Imagine what we could accomplish together... what we could create.

Reception

Dafoe's performance as the Green Goblin was widely praised and is considered to be one of the greatest superhero movie villains.

Vulture ranked the Green Goblin 19th on the top 25 superhero film villains in 2018, while Collider ranked him the 5th greatest Spider-Man film villain in 2020. Steven Scaife of Vice wrote that "Dafoe's Goblin represents everything that’s fun about superhero villains, as well as everything that’s great about Raimi's campy films." He also commended Dafoe's voice and body language, which helped overcome the bulky Green Goblin costume that he compared to that of a Power Rangers villain. Looking back at the Sam Raimi trilogy, Tom Holland, who portrays Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in addition to his co-star Jacob Batalon, praised Dafoe's performance in the trilogy, calling the Green Goblin a "landmark villain". The two actors praised Dafoe's ability to "bring a difficult character to life" and particularly the mirror scene where he portrays both Norman Osborn and the Green Goblin persona.

David Germain of Peninsula Clarion stated, "Dafoe's best moments come in schizoid debates between the tremulous Osborn and his snarling alter-ego, his internal struggle eliciting occasional compassion among viewers."

Tulsa World stated "Willem Dafoe shoots the moon as Norman Osborn, an unhinged scientist who becomes a masked supervillain called the Green Goblin. Encased in gleaming armor and cackling maniacally as he zips around on a one-man jet glider, he provides some of the film's most dynamic images. However, the Goblin is only half as scary as Dafoe without the mask. In one memorable scene, he debates the nature of his own evil with his reflection in a mirror, successfully taking more risks as an actor than Jack Nicholson in Batman or his own tour de force in Shadow of the Vampire. As much fun as Dafoe is to watch, it's in some of his scenes where the film nearly goes off the rails. At times the Goblin is almost too menacing for this otherwise good-hearted adventure."

Stylistically, there was heavy (though not universal), criticism of the Green Goblin's costume, which led IGN's Richard George to comment years later, "We're not saying the comic book costume is exactly thrilling, but the Goblin armor (the helmet in particular) from Spider-Man is almost comically bad... Not only is it not frightening, it prohibits expression."

William Dafoe won a New York Film Critics Online Award for Best Supporting Actor and was nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best Villain.

Dafoe was even nominated for a Seattle Film Critics Society Award for Villain of the Year for his performance in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Trivia

  • In the novelization by Peter David, the Green Goblin is specifically depicted as a separate entity within Norman Osborn's psyche, actually taking over Norman's body whenever he commits his evil deeds while forcing a helpless Norman into his subconscious. Unlike the film, the Goblin identifies himself as some kind of a dark god and persuades Norman Osborn from not alerting the authorities of his actions by promising him to gain power and respect from world leaders for the both of them. In the film itself, it's left ambiguous whether the Green Goblin is actually an alternate personality of Norman, if he is a representation of Norman's darkest traits or if Norman is hallucinating him all the time.
    • That said, this issue was finally solved onscreen nineteen years later with the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which confirmed that the Green Goblin is indeed a separate entity from his host, with Norman being shown terrified at the prospect of being taken over by the Green Goblin and regretting the actions he committed while under his control.
  • During the final battle scene, it was supposed to be more brutal with more blood and the use of razor-sharp weapons again and Spider-Man's beating was supposed to be more brutal, but they decided to tone it down to meet PG-13 rating.
  • Willem Dafoe portrayed the Green Goblin in each of the three films of the Raimi Spider-Man trilogy. Although his character was killed during the climax of the first film, the Goblin appeared in the other two films as a vision/hallucination to his son, Harry, thus, he liked to manipulate him and drive him into trying to kill Spider-Man.
    • Aside from appearing as a vision of Norman Osborn in Spider-Man 3, Dafoe appears in a cameo as a customer in a club that Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy go to.
  • Norman Osborn, a.k.a. the Green Goblin, also appeared as the main antagonist in the 2002 Video Game based on the film. In the game, his main scheme was to take Spider-Man's blood and inject it into himself, in order to improve himself, but in the film, his scheme was to defeat and kill Spider-Man, kill his loved ones and destroy the city with his equipment. In the game, unlike in the movie, he was also killed by his glider's blades, which hit him straight in his body, and not in his stomach, which left him to die alone while the glider flew away.
    • Norman's Goblin character model was also a playable character in the game, although it is actually his son Harry.
  • The Goblin didn't make an appearance in the costume of his respective film until the second half.
  • Willem Dafoe performed 90% of his own stunts.
  • The Green Goblin was chosen as the film's main villain since Sam Raimi felt the father-son theme (Norman and Harry Osborn and Peter Parker) would make the film deeper.
  • The Green Goblin's costume was originally designed to be more bulky and armored, but Willem Dafoe, having decided to film his own stunts, rejected it in favor of a more streamlined and athletic costume. The final outfit was composed of 580 pieces and took Dafoe half an hour to put on.
  • During the fight between the Green Goblin and Spider-Man near the end, Willem Dafoe accidentally clipped Tobey Maguire on the chin with one blow.
  • The smoke in the lab during Norman Osborn's transformation scene was originally white but was then digitally altered to green. Director Sam Raimi wanted to use real green smoke but went with the CG effect when prop designers could not create a colored smoke that was nontoxic.
  • Both Tobey Maguire and Willem Dafoe incorporated a Yoga technique called Ashtanga into their training regimens for this film. "Ashtanga" translates into English as "eight-legged", like a spider.
  • Before Willem Dafoe received the role of the Green Goblin, the role was originally intended to be played by Billy Crudup, who even dropped out of other projects to act in this film, but he was considered too young to play the part of Norman Osborn and was declined the role. Many other actors, including De Niro and Travolta, turned down the role. Robert De Niro was also considered for Otto Octavius/Dr. Octopus, (another villain), in the sequel. The final actor in line to play Norman was Bill Paxton, but Sam Raimi was finally convinced that Dafoe was right for the part after a few meetings. Paxton's father still appears in the film as Osborn's elderly housekeeper.
  • Willem Dafoe's own face bears an uncanny resemblance to the original Green Goblin mask from the comics, designed almost 40 years before he was cast in the role.
  • Norman Osborn's home is decorated with masks from around the world. The filmmakers did this to suggest that Norman is a collector of masks, thus offering an explanation for how he was able to provide a mask for his Green Goblin outfit.
  • The film was supposed to feature Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin. However, Sam Raimi decided against using two villains, to focus on a more straightforward story. Doc Ock would later be used in the sequel.
  • Willem Dafoe was never an intended choice to play the Green Goblin. After the script fell into his possession, he began lobbying for the role and met with Sam Raimi, who had intended to cast Billy Crudup in the role. Sometime later, while filming a movie in Spain, Dafoe was approached and shot some test footage inside the hotel room he was staying in. It led to his being cast. Once he received the role, Dafoe asked that he be allowed to perform his own stunts so that the character and movements would feel authentic, or else the audience would notice the difference. He performed about 95% of his own stunts, and unlike many of the stunt crew, learned how to handle the Goblin Glider after just 15 minutes. Having such a great time during filming, he offered to return for Spider-Man 2 (2004) and asked if they could write him in somewhere, his character having died in this movie. Sam Raimi took him up on the offer and both of them set aside a specific day of filming on Spider-Man 2 for Dafoe to shoot Norman Osborn's cameo in other characters' dreams and memories.
  • Willem Dafoe had to be fitted with prosthetic teeth when he took the role of Spider-Man. Producers didn't feel a person as rich as Norman Osborn couldn't afford to get his teeth straightened out. Willem Dafoe's real teeth can be seen in the scene where Norman Osborn is having a conversation with himself in the mirror.
  • Willem Dafoe agreed to come back to play Green Goblin because he got to do his own stunts.
  • While filming Spider-Man: No Way Home, Willem Dafoe wore a cloak to conceal his identity and costume on the set to prevent his appearance from being leaked and preserve the film's secrecy. Tom Holland actually met Dafoe during filming when they accidentally bumped against each other.
  • The Green Goblin has the distinction of being the only main antagonist of a film of the Spider-Man film series within the Marvel Cinematic Universe whose origins aren't linked in any way to Tony Stark (though this is likely because we don't know if Stark exists in the Raimiverse or not). The Vulture lost his job thanks to Tony founding Damage Control to clean up the remains of the Battle of New York and Mysterio was fired by Stark due to his unstable nature.
    • He also has the distinction of being the first non-MCU villain to appear as the main antagonist of an MCU film, due to having been the main villain of the Raimi trilogy before becoming the main antagonist of No Way Home.
  • He appears in the Chad Kroeger and Josey Scott "Hero" music video.
  • In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Peter is able to create a cure for Norman, telling the MCU Peter that he'd been "thinking about it a long time," suggesting that even with the Goblin long gone, Peter had still cared for and wanted to help Norman if he could.
  • During the fight against MCU Spider-Man in the apartment complex, the scene where the Green Goblin maniacally laughs as Peter punches him in the face repeatedly was improvised by Dafoe. Tom Holland's unnerved reaction to this was genuine.
