From  http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/11/01/amazing-spiderman-2-villain-is-electro-jamie-foxx-in-talks/

We’ve heard a few times that it’s likely that Electro will be the villain of the next Spider-Man movie, and Variety are echoing that once more tonight.

What’s more, they’ve learned that Jamie Foxx is negotiating to take the role.

An angry Jamie Foxx is pretty scary. It was inevitable he’d get cast as a villain in a big tentpole sooner or later. I fancy that they’ll shave his head an go the Ultimate route.

Update: Seems that Foxx is more than up for the role. Here’s his Hallowe’en tweet:

Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well.

I approve. I like villains with a power set different from the hero. Lizard's okay but he's a strong agile guy who can scale walls. Venom's about the only guy I want that can do those things, let the rest do other stuff.

And Jamie Foxx is as good as anybody else I suppose. He should wear a lighting bolt cowl and call himself Black Vulcan. Phone Post

Meh. I'm just waiting for Green Goblin so Gwen Stacy can take a dive. Kraven would be nice too.

I wonder if they will even bring in Green Goblin at all in this new movie series. I mean they kind of have to since it's Spider-Man's most formidable enemy, but he had been done to death in the Raimi trilogy. Kraven would be good but with CGI being as incredible as it is today, I would love to see what Mysterio could do in a movie.

Kraven the hunter would be nice. I liked how the lizard was just too much for Spiderman in fights and he had to survive and use his wits.

BASICALLY IT WAS TWILIGHT WITH SPIDERMAN THROWN IN.     I THOUGHT THE FIGHT SCENES WERE SHITTY (WIITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS),  THE LIZARD WAS DONE HORRIBLY AND THE PLOT SUCKED.    

 

BASICALLY IT WAS A COOKIE CUTTER MOVIE WORTHY OF MICHEAL BAY STATUS. 

 

 

 

AND YES IT WAS STILL BETTER THAN SPIDERMAN 3 BUT THATS NOT SAYING MUCH.  LOL

The newest spiderman sucked compared to the first two. Also, Electro is a terrible, stupid supervillian.

I'm a big electro fan and Jamie Foxx is a great actor. My issue is that the story telling on the new spidey was fucking terrible. I still can't believe how many people liked that piece of shit.

Electro is full on elemental now but i hope they dont make him that way for this film. Give me classic Electro without the star head mask.

Theres a lot of potential for him to be visually awesome.

I dont' think we've been watching the same movies. The first set of movies was Twilight with a dash of spiderman. I think this last movie was better than the first 3 combined...The action in this last movie is on a whole other scale...

OH COME ON MAN...........THE FIGHT SCENES IN SPIDERMAN 2 BETWEEN HIM AND OCK ARE ABOUT 3 MILLION TIMES BETTER THAN ANYTHING THIS NEW SPIDERMAN MOVIE HAD. 

 

THE ONLY THING I HATED ABOUT THE FIRST TWO WAS THEIR CHOICE FOR MARY JANE AND WILLIAM DEFOE'S OVER ACTING LOL.

I really liked the new movie. I really feel it's the best Spiderman movie so far. Though, The Lizard was pretty much one-note and not devoloped funny as a villain. The half-hour spiderman cartoon on Fox in the mid-90s had better character development.

The major thing I didn't like and Raimi's spiderman had this as well is when Peter Parker does superhuman stuff out in public in front of tons of people. You don't think people could easily put two and two together?

Maybe. Powerset seems too similar to lizard in that it's all physical gifts.
I want electro or sandman or mysterio or shocker or someone like that in the new movies.. Phone Post

I had been waiting for the Lizard since Spiderman 2. They fucked him over real nice in ASM.

Im not really interested in Rhino but with an actor like Paul Giamatti i cant help but think that it could be good. 

 

uggh. i still cant believe how many of you liked ASM. a few cool action sequences werent enough to make up for the constant garbage.
