The original film interpretation of Green Goblin came with mixed results — with some criticizing its boldly different take from the comics resembled a rejected Power Rangers costume — however, the original mask more closely resembled the source material, to the extent that it frightened the crew of 2002’s Spider-Man film.
The Hollywood Reporter has unearthed a couple behind-the-scenes videos from the film that show the original Goblin mask in action — and it’s creepy as hell.
Created by Amalgamated Dynamics, the proto-Green Goblin mask would’ve covered Willem Dafoe’s entire face, making him look like a fully-transformed goblin, rather than the final design, which was a mere goblin-shaped helmet. Seamlessly working in the actor’s mouth, the mask would’ve allowed for a wide range of emotions.
The videos, which you can check out below, are pretty cool, and offer a different, darker vision for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man film than the one that would inevitably end up on the big screen.
In theaters now, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Spider-Man and Michael Keaton as Vulture, in addition to Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
