Variety Magazine is reporting that Jamie Foxx (Collateral, Ray) is in talks to play the villain Electro in the upcoming sequel to ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’.
A short clip in the credits of the summer blockbuster showed Dr. Curt Connors sitting alone in what appeared to be a cell (one window, one small cot). One flash of lightning and thunder later, and someone has joined him. Due to the shadows we never get a good look at his face, but there’s a short conversation:
Unknown: “Hello, Doctor!” (in a raspy voice) “Did you tell the boy?”
Dr. Connors: “Tell him what?”
Unknown: “Did you tell the boy the truth about his father?”
Dr. Connors: “No.”
Unknown: “Well, that’s very good. So we’ll let him be for now.”
Dr. Connors: “You should leave him alone!”
But as Dr. Connors yells this last part, he realizes, one flash of lightning and rumble of thunder later, that he’s alone.
We can see that the man has long hair and is holding a hat in his hands. (We’d link to the clip on YouTube, but all the videos we can find are obvious pirated copies from cellphones, and they just don’t meet the quality that we’re used to here at QRE.)
So, what do you think? Was this Electro? And if so, is Jaime Foxx the man for the job?
