Will Willem DeFoe be back as the Green Goblin? He told If Magazine a definitive “maybe.” “It would depend on a lot of things not just on schedules that stuff can get worked out.

The first one was fun to do, the second one there wasn’t much to do, but I did it because I like Sam [Raimi], and then in the third one I was a shadow,” Dafoe said. “I can’t imagine unless there was something to do like a resurrection that they did in the comic book that would be fun to do. Never say never though!”
