Rumors have been spreading for some time that Foxx would join the cast as Spider-Man’s nemesis. He only added fuel to that fire when he tweeted that he dressed up as Electro for Halloween.
Foxx was quoted saying, “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.”
It was also announced that the “Lincoln” star Dane Dehaan will be playing Harry Osborn in the sequel. The film will also be starring Emma Stone and Shailene Woodley.
Blair Stover reports that production will begin in early 2013 and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ will be set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.
