Sony has been in a bit of trouble lately, coming up negatively in press over the past few weeks when word got out that there film division isn’t doing so hot, despite numerous big hits this year and last year.
It’s only fitting that they let out some rumors regarding one of their upcoming projects The Amazing Spider-Man 2, to help boost some Blu-ray sales for The Amazing Spider-Man by creating fresh word and to help people ignore the whole financial crisis thing.
The latest comes from Variety reporting that Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx might be playing Electro in the upcoming Spider-Man sequel. This bit of news kind of sucks, because Electro is one of the dullest villains from the comic-book cannon and even though Foxx is an interesting choice I can’t stop thinking about the character from the cartoon and how forgettable he was.
I’m sure as production begins we’ll be able to get a better idea of the character and if he’ll be joining anyone else or taking on the film alone.
Does Jamie Foxx playing Electro sound like a good idea to you?
