Live from SDCC. The AXIS Marvel Comics Panel is going on right now. I grabbed this news on why the Green Goblin was switched out for the Hobgoblin and how Jack O’Lantern is now part of the story.
A Fan asked a question about the change in Goblins in AXIS. Lowe explained to a fan why an early “AXIS” teaser shifted from depicting Green Goblin to Norman Osborn. Following the “Goblin Nation” storyline in “Superior Spider-Man,” Lowe said, “it wasn’t going to be possible” for Norman Osborn to have a role in “AXIS.” “What Dan ended up doing with Norman didn’t fit with ‘AXIS’ anymore,” Remender added. “I think it worked out for the better. We still have big Spider-Man piece, and Spider-Man himself, will play a role. Hobgoblin is a more interesting piece, I think, once we got to it.”
