After months of speculation, it has been officially confirmed that Jamie Foxx will play the villain in The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel!
The rumours of Foxx’s role in the movie have been circulating for months, to the point where everyone pretty knew he was going to take the role. But which role? Which villain will he play?
The rumour since the very beginning was that the villain of the movie would in fact be Electro and yesterday, speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Foxx officially confirmed the character and his role in the movie. “Electro is a great character. I met with the director, Marc Webb, I met with Andrew Garfield, and we talked. 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 news of this confirmation has come a little under the radar for a couple of reasons. Firstly, as I mentioned previously, the rumour was so strong that everyone pretty much thought it was already officially and secondly, in the last week or so news and speculation surrounding the movie has focused primarily on the casting of Harry Osborn.
This came to ahead last night with The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb tweeting the fact that a young actor by the name of Dane DeHaan (of In Treatment / Chronicle / Lawless fame) had been cast in the role.
Are you loving the direction in which The Amazing Spider-Man sequel is going? Do you want to see Electro as the main villain for this movie? If not, who would you have preferred?
