Last month, we reported that Chronicle star Dane DeHaan was one of the top candidates to play Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, along with Brady Corbet (Melancholia), and Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures). Today, director Marc Webb revealed on his Twitter page that Dane DeHaan has landed the role.

We also reported last month that Sam Claflin, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, and Boyd Holbrook were in contention for this coveted role, before they decided on Dane DeHaan. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are reprising their roles as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy.
