As Dane DeHaan continues to promote his new movie The Place Beyond The Pines we can expect to hear more about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as well. Superhero Hype spoke with the young actor and asked how his role as Harry Osborn differs from some of the other roles he’s played.

“First of all, ‘Chronicle’ was about a kid with an abusive father,” said DeHaan. “‘Place Beyond the Pines’ is about a kid who doesn’t know who his father is, and they’re very different relationships. Obviously with Harry Osborn, the privilege of it is another dynamic. The relationship Harry has with Norman is a different dynamic. Every son has a relationship with their father, whether that father is there or not, and that always has an effect on the person whether they admit it or not. There’s a lot of different ways those relationships are complicated.”

When asked to compare his Harry Osborn to James Franco’s from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy, DeHaan replied “I dunno, I mean Franco did his thing, I’ll do my thing.”
