Jamie Foxx On Bringing Electro Back For The Sinister Six; Wants To Adapt And Star In SPAWN

The Django Unchained star drops some very intriguing hints about Electro's future in The Amazing Spider-Man Universe and teases the possibility of Max Dillon joining the Sinister Six. He also reveals that he's actively trying to bring Spawn to the big screen!

"I'll put it to you this way: you don't really kill electricity; it just goes to another place," Jamie Foxx teased when asked by Movies.com whether or not we should expect to see Electro return in a future instalment of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. "You can shut it off, but it's still somewhere. Look, I'm just happy and humbled to be in this one and hopefully do right by the fans in making Electro someone who has different sides. I want people to feel for him, so that when he does turn into Electro, you want to root for him. Whether he comes back again in another film ... you know, so be it." As for whether or not a possible return would include The Sinister Six, the Academy Award winning actor added: "You know, Electro was always tempted by the Sinister Six. So, we'll see. Look, stepping away from it, I would like to see something like that. That would make it like, okay, the big guys are coming to play." The more we hear, the more likely it sounds that it's actually going to happen! However, it turns out that this isn't the only comic book movie role that Foxx has his eye on. ""Spawn is one, yeah. And Mike Tyson. Those are two roles I would just love to do. I'm aggressively pursuing them!"

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.


Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy
Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson
Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro
Sally Fields as Aunt May

No more clowning around. I'm not the Vindicator or the Victimizer or the Vaporizer or the Vibrator! I'm

Mike Tyson..??
Highflyer - 7/20/2013, 2:57 AM
ummmm... ok
JerBear - 7/20/2013, 3:08 AM
He'd have to go through quite the physical transformation to play Mike Tyson.
Jolt17 - 7/20/2013, 3:11 AM
Whoa, Jamie Foxx as Al Simmons...Mr. Foxx, do it.

"I like the way I die, boy."
SpectacularJoSh - 7/20/2013, 3:23 AM
These actors seem to know a little too much about the Sinister Six...even the actors who aren't comicbook fans...or that don't watch the animated shows.....yeah, this Sinister Six movie is happening. Heck, even I thought about it when they said this franchise wasn't a trilogy anymore.
Any ways...a Sinister Six movie? Excited as [frick] :)
Danbojohnj - 7/20/2013, 3:27 AM
Great actor but too old for Tyson unless it's about his later years.Would take Spawn at a push though.
DEATHbyEXILE - 7/20/2013, 3:31 AM
hell yeah
AmazingFantasy - 7/20/2013, 3:31 AM
Sinister [frick]ing Six please

Electro = Cole MacGrath
thecrow1482 - 7/20/2013, 3:48 AM
Micheal J. White has played both Mike Tyson in a T.V movie and Spawn in a live action film so Jamie wants to redo Micheals film I guess or wants to do it to spite him because he has beef with him or something. LOL! I can see Jamie play Spawn but no way could be play Tyson, he'd have to bulk up like The Rock and Walberg and he is to old but only time will tell.
SnapperCarr - 7/20/2013, 3:50 AM
Its going to build up to Sinister Six.
MightyZeus - 7/20/2013, 3:51 AM
Spawn would be great. Also i'm hoping the studios would do a 'The Darkness' film adaptation.

TheRedSkull - 7/20/2013, 3:55 AM
Hell yes, let him be Spawn. I mean anything is a step up from that atrocity that was made many years ago...

As for Electro, I have high hopes. The guy is an amazing actor
FreedomFreeLife - 7/20/2013, 3:56 AM
Foxx explained the character a little more. “We wanted Electro to be serious; I wanted him to be a formidable opponent. I told him, I really want Electro to be angry. It makes the fight more epic – he doesn’t want to talk anymore, he wants to fight, he’ll burn the city down to get revenge.

“We wanted to do three things: Max [Dillon, Electro's real name] needed to be betrayed by love, by family and by his work. What happens is that it’s his birthday and even his mom doesn’t remember. That sets it up, the fact that when he turns into this guy, you understand where he’s coming from. We gave that journey more than one side.”
LEVITIKUZ - 7/20/2013, 3:56 AM
He won't do Spawn.

Mostly because MacFarlane is too lazy to direct his suppose movie.
staypuffed - 7/20/2013, 3:57 AM
SINISTER SIX would be INCREDIBLE. Come Sony. Make it happen!
FreedomFreeLife - 7/20/2013, 3:57 AM
Max is betrayed by love, by family and by his work.

He doesn’t want to talk anymore, he wants to fight, he’ll burn the city down to get revenge.

Stay on topic FreedomFreeTroll

Kind of reminds me of the Electro from that CG Spider-Man series.
LEVITIKUZ - 7/20/2013, 4:07 AM

Yes it would.
fedup - 7/20/2013, 4:18 AM
Well, Jamie Fox basically just outed himself as the guy McFarlane's been talking to for the Spawn flick. McFarlane's been saying for the past two to three years that he's been talking to an "Oscar winning actor" for the role, so it really wouldn't surprise me if it was Fox.
datNAMEtho - 7/20/2013, 4:57 AM
A new Spawn film would be awesome!
marvel72 - 7/20/2013, 5:02 AM
spawn reboot.........

Whiteandgold - 7/20/2013, 5:03 AM
If the sinister six shows up. RIP Spiderman
TyrantBossMedia - 7/20/2013, 5:04 AM
"Electricity doesnt't die..."

So basically Foxx has spoiled the end of the movie. Electro dies.
Nice job tool.

I'd have perma bone if the Six showed up in future film! How cool would that be?
Greengo - 7/20/2013, 5:25 AM
The Lizard
Dr. Octopus

Sandman was raped (I'm sure it felt like sandpaper)in Spideman 3 so don't think they're gonna use him.

They have a whole zoo they can use.

genesis609 - 7/20/2013, 5:45 AM
i wanna see kraven or mysterio as the next villian, id much rather see them as part of the sinister six then scorpian or vulture
Greengo - 7/20/2013, 5:48 AM
Maybe Venom and/or Carnage.
ShreckGT350 - 7/20/2013, 6:09 AM
Greengo, I like where your heads at for your list of villains! They would all certainly connect with Oscorp in one way or another. I wonder how Green Goblin would connect though.
HorrorPilot - 7/20/2013, 6:11 AM
Spawn? Um..no. Just no.
Armyshot - 7/20/2013, 6:11 AM
Mysterio for sure!!! Sinister Six Hellz Yeah!!!
tricklove187 - 7/20/2013, 6:40 AM
I'd prefer the inevitable adult film parody "Sinister Sex."
Masterpace - 7/20/2013, 6:49 AM
WTF is going on? They gave us teaser before the panel and they won't give us the trailer? Again WTF?
brazilianbatman - 7/20/2013, 6:56 AM
mike Tyson as fox? I can see this. bring sinister six in the amazing spiderman 6.
brazilianbatman - 7/20/2013, 6:58 AM
I hope by the time sinister six shows up sony and marvel could work something together and let a hero joing spiderman to help him out.
not sure who but I think it would look fake if spiderman beat 6 powerful villains with no help
