Spider Man 2

Jamie Foxx reportedly up for the villain in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will face off against a "shocking" new adversary in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." According to Variety, Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx is in early talks to play the villain Electro in Sony's superhero sequel to this summer's reboot of the Marvel Comics' franchise.

While the studio hasn't officially commented on casting, Foxx all but confirmed the role Thursday with a post-Halloween tweet:
Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well.
— Jamie Foxx (@iamjamiefoxx) November 1, 2012

The classic Spidey villain Electro, aka Maxwell "Max" Dillon, gained the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning. Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, he first appeared in "The Amazing Spider-Man #9" in February 1964. Foxx would be a departure from the comic-book character, who has traditionally been depicted as being Caucasian.

There was a hint that Electro would be the villain of the next movie at the end of "The Amazing Spider-Man." In a short scene during the credits, Dr. Curt Conners, aka the Lizard (played by Rhys Ifans), was visited in his jail cell by a mysterious figure obscured in the shadows. The man (played by actor Micheal Masse) asked Connors if he told Peter Parker the truth about his father, and when Connors says no, he disappears with a flash of lightning. This lead some people to assume that figure was supposed to be Electro, but others believe it to be Norman Osborn, who was mentioned throughout the film (and later becomes the villain, Green Goblin).

This would be the first time Electro would appear in a movie, but back in 1991, director James Cameron developed his own "Spider-Man" project that would have featured the character as one of the villains. Cameron's version got caught up in a web of legal issues surrounding the rights, and he eventually left the project, going on to direct "True Lies" and "Titanic." "Spider-Man" wouldn't hit the big screen until the next decade.

Stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are set to reprise their roles as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, respectively, with Shailene Woodley ("The Descendants") reportedly in talks to join the cast as a young Mary Jane Watson. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is scheduled to swing into theaters on May 2, 2014. Jamie Foxx will next be seen playing the title role in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," opening this Christmas.

UPDATE: In an interview with Collider.com, director Marc Webb confirmed that the villain of the sequel will be Electro. He said, "I think Electro is an incredibly visual, exciting, dangerous villain. So, there's a lot of appealing stuff that's going to happen."

I think Spider-Man 2 was the best superhero film ever prior to 2008.

He struggles with guilt and sacrifice and doing the right thing, but he's not a gloomy or shadowy guy, like Batman, Daredevil, or Punisher. By trying to make him (and Superman, because they did this same thing in Man of Steel) into a dark, gritty, Batman-ish character, they're losing who he is.

The ones who are doing it right are (no surprise here) the makers of Captain America, and to a lesser extent the rest of the Avengers movies. They kept the characters, and in some cases even made them more interesting, but didn't go all tortured and Chris Nolan.

And by the way, the rest of the world preferred Spider-Man and especially Spider-Man 2 than Amazing Spider-Man. We'll see if Amazing Spider-Man 2 can beat their 89 and 93 percent scores on Rotten Tomatoes, for example.
I don't think the last one was "darker" per se at least not like Nolan's Batman, just a bit more gritty and I know I'm biased because I never much cared for Tobey as Spiderman, and do like Garfield as Parker so far.

The last one wasn't tremendous, but I enjoyed it. I think I also just liked the film's pacing a lot more than early 2000's trilogy. Those seemed to plod along and had some extended boring segments for my liking.

Everyone will have their own opinion, so its not like there isn't justifiable criticism for any of the last 4 Spidey films.

I enjoyed the reboot alot more than I thought I would. What I liked most about it was the spidey action scenes looked more real and not as much CGI fakery as the Raimi flicks. Of course alot of that is advances in special effects I'm sure.

Ya, me too.

I remember when some teaser footage for the last one came out and just had the rough cut cgi - not fully finished, and the internet dorks were going bonkers with rage thinking this rudimentary version was an indication of it going to look like shit since it was known Sony was rushing to get it released on a very tight schedule.

Rhino is actually an experiment gone right. His suit does pretty much exactly what he (and the Commie scientists that made it) wanted it to.

Agreed.

Some have said that the first X-Men movie ushered in the current superhero movie generation, but that first X-Men movie took a lot of liberties with its characters. The first two Spider-Man movies were the first movies to stay true to the character and setting and perform exceptionally well at the box office since the original Superman movies.

I don't know if people really appreciate how groundbreaking that was for the genre -- they were coming off an era of bat nipples and black leather and cheesy villains, and then Raimi gave us the actual Spider-Man from the comic books, and it became the first movie ever to gross over $100 million on its opening weekend. I doubt Marvel would have given us a string of decent to great comic book movies without that. I even question whether Nolan would've been allowed to give us a serious interpretation of Batman.

Yeah, the new movie obviously had better CGI and overall it was decent, but it departed from the actual comics -- even from the Ultimate version -- for no apparent reason. If the second continues down the same path and deviates further, they might as well bring in Joel Schumacher for the third one.

I'm sorry, but Jaime Foxx looks damn ridiculous in that makeup and bald head. His eyes being crossed when it flashes the shot of his face doesn't help either. That teaser doesn't do anything for me in excitement for this movie. The stills of him with the hood all lit up with blue LED's is badass though.

Please just stick to one villain... please oh please. If you do a disservice to Electro/Green Goblin the same way you did to Venom/Sandman.... I'm going to flip shit.

This.

Venom deserved his own movie. Still does.

I really wish Marvel had the rights to SM and FF...
