Jamie Foxx May Be Electro Because Why the @#$% Not

From Variety:

It looks like Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is coming together faster than expected as sources tell Variety the studio is in early talks with Jamie Foxx to play the villain in the movie.
Though the studio would not comment on the character sources have also told Variety that Foxx would play Electro in the pic.
Really, Hollywood? All of Spider-Man’s enemies, and you hire a black guy to play the one who controls electricity? Good job. You know what you’ve just made?


Somewhere, Donald Glover is facepalming so hard right now. Thanks to Steven D. for the tip.
