"The Amazing Spider-Man" sequel might've found its villain in Jamie Foxx.
The actor, according to Variety, is in early talks to play the bad guy in the Marc Webb-directed feature. As of now, it looks like producers are hoping to see Foxx as Electro, the alter-ego of Max Dillon who can control electricity.
Funnily enough, Foxx has already had a little practice in character, as Electro just so happened to be his costume choice for Halloween. "Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night," Foxx tweeted Thursday. "Costume fits well."
Director Webb, in response to Foxx's sly tweet, quipped to the Huffington Post, "I think he's electrifying."
"I can't go into it in too much detail," Webb continued, "except to say that I think Jamie Foxx is one of our great living actors. He's a star, but he's a brilliant character actor. I mean, all of the way back to the days of 'In Living Color,' I think he's done some pretty exceptional work."
"Star Trek: Into Darkness" has warped its way to a $70.6 million domestic launch from Friday to Sunday, though it's not setting any light-speed records with a debut that's lower than the studio's expectations.
"The Hangover" has become the highest-grossing R-rated comedy in North American box-office history. A 2011 sequel would take in more than half-a-billion dollars worldwide. And next week comes the third and allegedly the last of the trilogy.
