While promoting White House Down with his co-star Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx talked a bit about his role as Max Dillion/Electro in the forthcoming sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

should could be Electro's catchphrase in the Marc Webb-directed film. Check out the vid and transcription below!
"What I wanted to bring, we all decided was, we wanted to make Electro a formidable opponent, meaning we want him to really, really not like Spider-Man," Foxx said. "They would allow me to come up with things, because I think why you like going to see those types of movies, and that's what I dig doing, you want to hear catchphrases," said Foxx. "So at one point we were doing this green screen thing, and [Marc Webb] says, 'Just ad-lib something.' And I said, "The itsy-bitsy spider went up the water spout, down came... Electro... and wiped the spider out."
In “The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2,” for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past. The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers. The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.
