In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Dane DeHaan undergoes an elaborate transformation from wealthy scion Harry Osborn, boyhood pal of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), into the unhinged Green Goblin. It took plenty of time, makeup, and costuming to physically create his character, but it also helped the actor prepare mentally. ''When you look at yourself in the mirror and you're in the suit and full-on Goblin makeup? You feel like a badass,'' says DeHaan. ''I look at myself and think, 'Hell, yeah, I'm the Green Goblin! Let's go do this.''' Here, he explains just how he went green.
Belle

Dido Elizabeth Belle (newcomer Gugu Mbatha-Raw) was an anomaly in 18th-century England. The mixed-race daughter of a Royal Navy admiral (Matthew Goode), she was raised by her aristocratic great-uncle, the First Earl of Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson), and his wife (Emily Watson). Director Amma Asante's fact-based epic charts the animosity Belle faced from her highborn peers (including Harry Potter's Tom Felton) as well as her positive influence on Lord Mansfield, a noted judge who helped abolish slavery in England in 1772. The focus is on the heroine's growing sense of empowerment. ''She goes from 'as you wish' to 'as I wish,''' says Asante. Like Belle, though, the filmmakers had to adhere to certain social constraints of the era. ''Gugu didn't wear any makeup on screen,'' says Asante. In that era, ''there wasn't any for women of color.''
