Jamie Foxx To Play Villian In The Amazing Spiderman 2

by on November 1, 2012

Jamie Foxx is almost certainly playing Electro in the 2nd installment of The Amazing Spiderman according to Film School Rejects.  Electro is an infamous Spiderman Villian who can control electricity.

This Spiderman wiki tells how Maxwell Dillon became electro:

While he was repairing a power line, a freak lightning accident resulted in a mutagenic change in his nervous system, transforming Dillon into a living electrical capacitor. His powers were initially weak, so he spent some time stealing electrical equipment from Stark Industries to charge himself.

Jamie Foxx tweated a tease earlier today indicating he has the role.

The story has been picked up on a number of the big movie news blogs. Do you think this tweet means it is a sure thing?
