Wanting to flex a little more star power out of the next Spider-Man film, Sony is looking at getting Jamie Foxx to take the role of Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. One would figure if Foxx takes the role, he ain’t going to be the classic character in the green and yellow spandex. I’m guessing more in the vain of the Ultimate Electro, were he’s all gold and sparkly.
I’ll say, if they do hire Foxx, he should look like the Ultimate version of the villain. Why? Well, I’m fine with the changing of the race, but if it’s just Jamie Foxx shooting sparks out of hands, then he’s pretty much become Black Lighting, and the mans a bit above that.
