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."

Rise of Electro, huh? Is that new?

Also, that shot of Times Square going dark was pretty rad.

Thor 1 and 2 really aren't anything alike other than the main characters. Does this mean you don't watch any TV shows because I can't imagine having to sit through 100 plus episodes of the same thing since well it's the same characters.
They have made the exact same movie 4 times. Spideys uncle has kicked the bucket more times than John Goodman.

Thought Thor sucked so passed on seeing the last one.

Saw the 3d trailer before Hobbits 2, looked pretty good overall - not too bad CGI wise and the 3D was done pretty well for the scenes they showed.

I'm less intrigued by Foxx's villain - definitely keen on seeing Giamatti in future movies since he's not really in this one much except for setting things up for the franchise going forward. I like their casting choice for Harry Osbourn, and if you've seen Chronicle (a movie I really liked) he was in that and can definitely act. He's got good range and can totally play both sides of Parker's friend and the other side as the Goblin.

In terms of the plot, I kinda dig the underlying story of Peter trying to clue together what all his father was involved with before his parents died under suspicious circumstances.

Chris Cooper plays Norman and it looks like he's on his death bed in the trailer. I'd actually like to see a movie that had him and Peter's parents ( played by Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz) as a sort of back story further delving into the whole set up and background.

They officially announced they plan to make a series of Sinister Six films. Basically Sonys answer to the Marvel film universe.

So the stand alone Venom movie... will that be the start to an entire new Spiderman series or what? A bit confused. I loved Venom as a kid, mostly because he looks ****ing awesome, but honestly he is a pretty boring villain. He really doesn't do much more than smash shit and fight Spidey. Spiderman as a film enterprise is actually quite boring to me. It would obviously benefit immensely if Disney were to acquire the rights and work him in with the rest of their Marvel heroes. He would benefit by having some real foes to face, and by taking the 2nd billing for a while as a superhero. For me anyway.

Just the blurb I saw:

Quote:
'Amazing Spider-Man 3' is on the way along with 'Venom' and 'Sinister Six'
By Jacob Kastrenakes
Posted: 8 Hours Ago


Sony Pictures has big plans for the Spider-Man universe.

Though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 won't be hitting theaters until March, the studio is already announcing three new movies in the franchise: a third Amazing Spider-Man film, a Venom film, and a film featuring The Sinister Six — a group of Marvel supervillains. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will begin production this fall with a planned release date of June 10th, 2016. Marc Webb, who directed the first two Amazing Spider-Man films, hasn't signed on to direct it just yet, but Sony Pictures says that it hopes he'll return.

THE FILMS WILL BE CONNECTED BY TONE AND STORY

The studio appears to be interested in recreating Marvel's success with The Avengers.

"Until now, we have approached each film as a separate, self-contained entity, but with this move, we have the opportunity to grow the franchise by looking to the future as we develop a continuous arc for the story,"

Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, who will produce the three new films, say in a statement. Sony Pictures has assembled a broader team to oversee all three upcoming films as well, ensuring that a continuous tone and plot arc tie them together.
Alex Kurtzman, previously a writer on Star Trek and Transformers, will direct and co-write Venom. The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard will write, and may also direct, The Sinister Six. Sony Pictures doesn't detail where the franchise might go beyond these next three films, but if they're successful, it appears that the studio will be eager to call up new Spider-Man stories and villains to bring to life.

Arad and Tolmach say there's plenty to look through: "With more than 50 years’ wealth of stories in the comic books to draw upon for inspiration, the Spider-Man universe is truly boundless."

Yea, it's really too bad Marvel doesn't control all it's characters. Would love to see Spider-man interact with the Avengers.

Ya know, I think I prefer the International Trailer over the US cut:
