Jamie Foxx Looks Set to Be Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

 Last night Jamie Foxx dressed up as Electro for Halloween, and tweeted "Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well." Which seems to confirm reports that he'll be playing one of Spider-man's most dangerous enemies in the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. 

Electro's power to control electricity is gained when he's struck by lightening, which of course makes him an intimidating foe for any superhero. In the first film's post-credits scene, lightening features prominently, which was the originator of the rumours that the villain would be a focal point of the second movie. Variety was first to report that Foxx had been in talks with the films makers. Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad will be producing the sequel, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield will return to their roles and Shailene Woodley has also been reported to be joining the cast as a young Mary-Jane. 

Filming is expected to begin next year, with a current release date set for May 2014. It'll be a long wait but with a cast shaping up to be one of the best yet, we're sure it'll be worth it. Before then we can enjoy Foxx in his latest role as the semi-freed slave Django, in Tarantino's latest movie Django unchained.
