Jamie Foxx In Talks To Play Electro in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Sequel!
Variety just dropped this bombshell: Apparrently Django Unchained actor Jamie Foxx is in "early talks" to suit up as Electro in Marc Webb's sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. Details aside from that are sparse, but read on for what we have..
It seems we can now stop referring to Electro as being "rumored" to be the villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as according to Variety, Sony are meeting with actors to play the role. One such actor - who although the site say is only in early talks, seems to be a shoe-in - is Jamie Foxx, next to be seen as the titular character in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. They don't have much more info on it, but word round the campfire (Latino Review) is that Homeland actor Damien Lewis was also up for the role at one point.
Oh, and there is this Tweet from the man himself of course..
Marc Webb is set to return to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for Sony and Columbia, with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone returning as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy, and Shailene Woodley looking likely to play a young Mary Jane Watson. More on the Foxx casting as we have it.
