Dane Dehaan - Dane DeHaan confirmed for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Dane DeHaan has been confirmed to play Harry Osbourn in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'.

The up-and-coming actor - who made his name in 'Chronicle' and has small parts in 'Lawless' and 'Lincoln' - joins Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in the superhero franchise as hero Peter Parker's tormented best friend, who later goes on to become his enemy.

Director Marc Webb announced: ''Dane is an exciting and extraordinary young actor and he is a fantastic addition to our cast.''

He then confirmed the news on twitter, saying: ''Meet Harry Osborn. So excited to have him on board.''

Dane then posted: ''To say I'm excited is an understatement. #HarryOsborn #ASM2'', before being inundated with positive comments from fans of the Marvel comic book franchise.

He added: ''All this love is makin' me feel all tingly inside. Thanks ya'll.#HarryOsborn #ASM2 (sic)''

The 26-year-old star was first tipped for the role last month alongside 'Supernatural' star Alden Ehrenreich and 'Melancholia''s Brady Corbet, but reports emerged Sony Pictures might be looking for a more athletic, all-American take on the character.

Harry is the son of the Green Goblin alter-ego Norman Osborn and becomes Peter's arch nemesis when his father dies. Producers are said to have gone with a more ''dark and edgy'' approach to match James Franco's chilling performance as Harry in Sam Raimi's earlier triology. .

Jamie Foxx and Shailene Woodley have also been confirmed as Electro and Mary-Jane Watson respectively.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' will be released in the UK on 18 April 2014.
