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.|
