“If everything was right, sure. I mean, that’s a great role. I liked the fact that it’s a double role both times,” he said, referring to how the actor would have to play both roles as Norman Osborn and his supervillain dual ego, the Green Goblin.
The actor told Variety about returning for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” last year.
“It’s always a little difficult when you die in a movie to come back in any sequels,” he said. “I thought I was finished. When they initially said, ‘Would you like to reprise this role?’ I thought, ‘Really? How does that happen?’ I was kind of stupid about it.”
Dafoe further discussed his love for the franchise, stating: “I can say, and maybe drank the Kool-Aid, but these are people that really are believing in what they’re doing and giving themselves to it in a very full way.”
