Jamie Foxx Lands Lead Villain Role In 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Jamie Foxx recently announced that he will play the character Electro in the Columbia Pictures’ upcoming film ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2.’

Foxx told Entertainment Tonight, while talking about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 that, “Electro is a great character. I met with the director, Mark 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.”

Electro is an evil villain who is another one of Spider-Man’s enemies. Marvel describes Electro as:

“After being convinced by his mother that he was not smart enough to pursue such a career, Max [Dillon, the character’s real name] instead reluctantly took a job as a lineman for an electric company. While repairing a power line still connected to its spool, Max was struck by lightning. Instead of being killed, the freak accident caused a mutagenic change in his nervous system, allowing him to generate and control vast amounts of electricity. After creating a colorful costume, Max turned to a life of crime as Electro.”

The Mark Webb directed ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ will star Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man and it’s slated to hit theaters on May 2, 2014
