Yahoo – 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.

First off…who does Jamie Foxx think he is? Django Unchained looks like a front runner for best picture this year. Him and Christopher Waltz make me wetter than Rosie O’Donell wearing leather pants in the hot July sun attending a WNBA LGBT event in Atlanta.
Yet, have you ever seen Electro? He could be the biggest fairy of a fictional character since Tinklerbell made her big screen debut. Just look at him:
If anyone is going to play this dingaling it should be Jesse from Breaking Bad, or maybe Neil Patrick Harris (fitting).
Jamie, if you want to be a villain go out for one whos more your…type. Like Rhino, or someone whos big, bad, tuff, and black…erh I mean, anyone but that pip-squeak Electro.
