JAMIE FOXX to play ELECTRO in ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’. Uh, okay.

Well screw me sideways, I didn’t see this coming. Jamie Foxx. Dope actor. Electro. Shitty villain. I am a bit torn. What do you folks think?


According to Collider, Django Unchained’s Jamie Foxx is in line to play Electro! Electro, the villainous electrical engineer who acquired superpowers after he was struck by lightning. This lines up quite nicely with the lightning hints the first film. Talking to Collider, Webb revealed why he wanted this particular villain:

“I think Electro is an incredibly visual, exciting, dangerous villain.  There is a lot of appealing stuff that is going to happen as the world emerges.”
