4. Norman Osborn / Green Goblin
Norman Osborn, a genius billionaire with a hairdo as wild as his ambitions, juggles life as the head of Oscorp and a single dad. He's got the brains, the bucks, and a burning desire to stand at the top of the superhero food chain. But when one of his own experiments turns him into the cackling, glider-riding menace known as the Green Goblin, Norman's life flips faster than a pancake on Sunday morning.
A movie diving into Norman's transformation would be like a tour through a fireworks factory - exciting, explosive, and a little bit terrifying. We'd get a front-row seat to his struggle with the Goblin's maniacal personality, turning his world into a thrilling psychological battleground. Who needs a straightforward hero when you can have a villain with more layers than an onion wearing a winter coat?
We've seen the Goblin zipping through the skies of New York, his eerie laugh echoing off the skyscrapers, throwing pumpkin bombs like they're going out of style. But he's not just a villain - he's a dad trying to win the world for his son, a friend tangled in a web of rivalry with Spider-Man, and a businessman who's one bad day away from losing it all. This movie wouldn't just be about the battles (though let's be honest, those would be epic), it would be about Norman's internal clash, his feverish chase for power, and how it all spirals out of control.
It'd a story of ambition, madness, and the thin line between genius and insanity served with a side of high-flying action and dramatic confrontations. Who wouldn't want to watch that unravel on the big screen, with a bucket of popcorn in hand, as Norman Osborn (preferably Dafoe's) takes us on a wild ride through the depths of his brilliant, but troubled mind?
