The hunt to find Harry Osborn for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" has come to an end.

DeHaan will be joined by Andrew Garfield as the titular masked vigilante, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, and Jamie Foxx as villainous Electro. They will kick off filming with Marc Webb in early 2013 as the movie is skedded for a May 2, 2014 release Stateside.

26-year-old DeHaan was recently seen starring in Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln", John Hillcoat's "Lawless", and Bradley Rust Gray's "Jack and Diane". He will next be seen in "The Place Beyond the Pines", "Devil's Knot", and "Kill Your Darlings".
