When Willem Dafoe was first approached for reprising his role (Green Goblin) in Spider-man: No Way Home, Dafoe told Amy Pascal and director Jon Watts that he will not do if the role was just a cameo. he wanted to meaningfully continue the work he started two decades prior. “It’s fun to do the action sequences, it’s fun to have resources.”
Dafoe continued “I make a lot of budget-challenged movies. So it’s nice to have all the technical stuff to work with.” He insisted on doing his own stunts because he loves how stripped down and simple the process is. “It’s really fun to do those things because they’re pure. They’re pure because what you’re doing is what you’re doing. And your heart and mind follow.”
Dafoe also said he has dreamed up playing the most iconic villain in cinema history: the Joker. also added “I’ll play dumb. You play characters. I could say, ‘Oh yeah, it’s fun to play villains ’cause you can do things that you can’t do in life, or it’s fun to play with your dark side’. But I don’t know. I’m not thinking about those things.”
