Although there has been no official announcement made by the Amazing Spider-Man camp, actor Jamie Foxx apparently confirmed he'll be playing Electro in the sequel to Amazing Spider-Man movie. Foxx is definitely excited for the role. Entertainment Tonight recently spoke to Foxx regarding a meeting he recently had with Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb and actor Andrew Garfield.
"I think Electro will be an exciting character to play because he's a ... genius electrician-type person, and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world, and the next thing you know he turns it on."
The word around town is that Foxx has indeed signed on for the sequel to Amazing Spider-Man and that he will be playing Electro. This little rumor may also have been fueled by the fact that Foxx dressed up as Electro for Halloween. Coincidence? We think likely not. Foxx would be an interesting addition to the Amazing Spider-Man sequel, and considering he recently sat down with the Amazing Spider-Man director and the man who plays Peter Parker, it seems he's definitely signed on for the sequel and there's a good chance the actor might be making his way as the next Spidey villain.
