Jamie Foxx confirms The Amazing Spider-Man 2 involvement
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will, it seems, definitely see Jamie Foxx playing the villain...
Even though it's seemed pretty much a certainty for a good month or two now, we aren't aware that Jamie Foxx's involvement in the soon-to-shoot The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been confirmed. That said, Foxx has been strongly linked with playing the villain in the new film, set to be Electro, and lots of hints had been dropped. However, any doubt about the casting has now evaporated, courtesy of Foxx himself.
Talking to Entertainment Tonight, Foxx said that "Electro is a great character". He added that "I met with the director, Marc Webb, I met with Andrew Garfield, and we talked. I think Electro will be an exciting character to play because he's a … genius electrician-type person, and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world, and the next thing you know he turns it on".
We think that news is pretty much confirmed, then. And overnight, the casting of Harry Osborn was cemented too.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release in May 2014.
