Collider sat down with The Amazing Spider-man director Marc Webb and he has confirmed that Jamie Foxx will play the main villain this time around as Spidey tackles Electro.
Indeed, Foxx himself tweeted: “Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well.” Whether the movie sticks to the comic origins of villain Max Dillon, who can control electricity after he is struck by lightening, is not yet confirmed.
Webb, at the launch of the first movie on Blu-ray said: “What’s exciting about moving forward is that, in the first movie, I had to still honor some of the important elements of the origin story. But I also wanted to redefine the context of it because I’m building a different universe than what we’ve seen before. A lot of the nuance is quite different. Now, as we’re approaching the sequel, it’s really exciting because I feel quite liberated. I have a universe that’s my own. I don’t have an obligation to the origin story. It’s pretty fun and exciting and I can dig deeper into the parents.”
The video below features Webb talking a little more indepth about the sequel and what it will involve and confirms this will be a trilogy of movies that revolves around the central story of who Peter’s parents were. He talks about how Oscorp is also very important to the story and that we can expect to see a new Spidey suits too. We’ll not spoil it all for you, so enjoy. We at FTN towers had a blast with the first movie and can’t wait for this…
