I like how you cast, boy.

I'm not sure how this will or will not effect the rumors of Spider-Man having to go up against Electro in the sequel to the rather spectacularly succesful first film ($750 million worldwide), but current Tarantino hero Jamie Foxx is reportedly in very early talks to play the villain (whomever they may be) in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2.  Which is in turn rumored/hoped to be called THE SPECTACTULAR SPIDER-MAN, but that's neither here nor there.

The sequel will once again be directed by Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and possibly Shailene Woodley,   with a script from Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner ("Lost", "Fringe") based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN).  A 3D release date of May 2nd, 2014 is already locked down.

So would you say this news is shocking, or right up the same unexpected alley as the casting of Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors?
