Hi, Bryan Here….

Columbia Pictures is courting Jamie Foxx to star as the next villain in the sequel to ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, which already has Andrew Garfield returning to star as Spidey and Marc Webb returning to direct. The script for the new film was written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinker, which was based on a previous treatment by James Vanderbilt. Remember Kurtzman and Orci wrote the reboot of ‘Star Trek’ for JJ Abrams.

According to Variety, Foxx might play Electro, and Shailene Woodley might play Mary Jane Watson as well.  Since this film is a little less than two years away from being released, there are tons of other options. Electro is the alter ego of Max Dillon, an enemy of Spider-Man who gains the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning. Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, the character first appeared in “The Amazing Spider-Man #9” in February 1964.

Also, Foxx tweeted this last night on Halloween:  “Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well.”

 

And if you remember from the first film, which came out earlier this summer, in the credit sequence where the Lizard (Dr. Curt Connors) is sitting in the jail cell, a mysterious shadowy figure appears in his cell and talks to him.  In that scene, there is a bit of lightning happening in that scene.  So, it sort of fits that Electro will be the villain.

This could be very cool.

Me holds are burstin' with swag. That bit of shine matters to us? Why?

It's what you've been searching for. I recognized the ship. I saw it eight years ago on the crossing from England.

Did ya, now?
Elizabeth Swann:
Fine. Well, I suppose if it is worthless then there's no point in me keeping it.

And how does a maid come to own a trinket such as that? Family heirloom, perhaps?
Elizabeth Swann:
I didn't steal it, if that's what you mean.

Bo'sun:
Still the guns and stow 'em, Signal the men, set the flags and make good to clear port.
Elizabeth Swann:
Wait! You have to take me to shore. According to the Code of the Order of the Brethren...
Barbossa:
First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement so I must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the pirate's code to apply and you're not. And thirdly, the code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner.
