If Green Goblin Shows Up In The MCU, Here's What Could Happen

Updated 11 Nov 2019 3.7k views12 items

When most people think of Norman Osborn, they think of the Green Goblin, one of Spider-Man’s all-time greatest foes. However, regular readers of Marvel Comics will know, as of late, Osborn has grown beyond the bounds of Spidey’s rogues’ gallery to become a true “big bad” of the Marvel Universe. It says a lot that, to many, the name “Norman Osborn” strikes more fear than “Green Goblin” ever did. Osborn has come a long way, but it seems the journey he needs to undergo to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe might be a long one. We've already seen Osborn appear in two Spider-Man franchises in the past two decades, but there are certainly crazier fan-theories out there, so anything is possible. 

When Marvel Studios made a deal with Sony to use Spider-Man in the MCU, they didn't just obtain the rights to Spidey - they got all of his villains, too. The Vulture and The Shocker have already appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming, so there’s no reason Osborn himself couldn’t appear in a sequel. Given his recent comic book history, it seems likely Spidey will find himself facing the man, rather than the Goblin, this time around.
