After rampant speculation and some gun-jumping over the last several days, actor Jamie Foxx confirmed to Entertainment Tonight on Monday that he would be joining the cast of the AMAZING SPIDER-MAN sequel as Electro.
Foxx, who won an Oscar for his work on RAY, has been enjoying a recent career resurgence with films like Django Unchained. He joins returning cast members Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, along with the recently announced Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn.
While there has been some whining from certain fans regarding the “color-blind” casting of Foxx as Max “Electro” Dillon, it has been minimal, which speaks to the level of respect afforded the veteran actor and anticipation of a quality performance.
We will continue to follow the project as it develops, so keep it pinned on Capeless Crusader for more news!
