Oscar Award winner Jaime Foxx has been a legendary singer (RAY), a boxing trainer (ALI), a homeless musical genius (SOLOIST) and now a bad-ass ex-slave bounty hunter in his new movie (DJANGO UNCHAINED). But there is one thing we haven’t seen the talented actor play…a super hero villian! Word is traveling thru Hollywood, that Foxx may be playing ELECTRO, the super-villian that uses electricty as his powers to reek havoc and torment Spiderman.
Foxx might have given away his new role on his Twitter feed, posting,
“Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well.”
Discussions are in the early stages for Jamie Foxx to join Columbia Pictures’ next installment of The Amazing Spider-Man, which has director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield already set to return. It’s unclear exactly how Foxx would fit into the script, though sources said he would play Electro, according to Variety, which had the news first. Production begins early next year. The original has grossed more than $750 million worldwide. Foxx next stars in Quentin Tarantino’s Western Django Unchained, which opens on December 25.
