Jamie Foxx addresses those persistant Amazing Spider-Man 2 rumors regarding Electro

Two weeks ago it was rumored that Jamie Foxx was up for the villain role in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, and that said villain would be none other than Electro.  Director Marc Webb then semi-confirmed the rumor while promoting the DVD/Blu-ray release of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, and now Foxx himself has spoken up and confirmed the rumor outright.  Or at least confirmed that 1) it's a possibility and 2) he wants it the part.

“Fingers crossed it all works out.   I have a little daughter, four years old, and what’s crazy is like, this past year she had a birthday where Spider-Man was the theme... I haven’t sprung it on her yet, but she will go crazy!"

Interestingly, one thing I didn't know was that Foxx even tweeted a hint at the incoming news back on November 1st: “Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night.  Costume fits well.”  Foxx doesn't have a whole lot on the docket right now post promotional duties for DJANGO UNCHAINED, so I'm a bit hard pressed to think of a reason why this casting might not come to pass.  How are you feeling now that things are inching closer to fruition?

Extra Tidbit: I'm curious what they've got going on for Electro's inevitable suit re-design, because enjoy THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN as I did I have no problem saying that I still think what they did with The Lizard was a travesty.

If Jamie's version of Electro is gonna look like that one in the pic then I'm game, don't know how much I would like it if it were the costume with the big bolt hanging off his face, I approve of Mr. Foxx

GIVE MICHAEL MASSEE HIS TURN!!

The end-credits sequence was CLEARLY an appearance by Electro. Micahael Massee has been at this shit a long time, and he deserves a little success. 20 years after his accident with Brandon Lee, the man finally gets a little piece of the [link] pie.

The Lizard was fine. You show me what a man who turns into a lizard/human hybrid by way of genetic manipulation is supposed to look like.

wanting him to look the way he's been drawn for over 20 years now was asking too much?
