While Jamie Foxx will soon hit the big screen in the title role of Quentin Tarantino's latest, 'Django Unchained,' the world is still reeling from his next big casting (excuse the pun) shocker -- he'll be starring in Marc Webb's upcoming 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' as the villain Electro.
Comic book fans know some details about this character already, including his ability to wield electricity, but how close exactly is Webb planning on sticking with his story line from the comics? Fortunately, we don't have think on it much, as Foxx has already revealed the origins of Spidey's nemesis.
And the hunt for Harry Osborn continues! Word is Marc Webb is currently testing four more actors to possibly play the role of Peter Parker BFF Harry Osborn in the upcoming sequel to 'The Amazing Spider-Man.'
Will 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' feature Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx as the villain Electro? We were all a bit floored when news hit that the 'Django Unchained' star was in talks to play this comic book character, and even moreso when he tweeted about dressing up as the electricity-hurling bad guy for Halloween. While the deal has not been finalized yet, it certainly seems like it is, especially after what 'Amazing Spider-Man' director Marc Webb had to say.
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be home just in time for Thanksgiving. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially announced that Marc Webb's 'The Amazing Spider-Man' will be swinging his way onto home video (via artificial web-shooters, of course) on November 9th. A Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, 3D Blu-ray combo pack, DVD and Limited Edition Gift Set will all become available on the same date.
Looking back on the 2012 summer movie season so far, it’s the superhero titles that are most notable, both in terms of box office and critical attention. And the big three, ‘The Avengers,’ ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ are all quite interesting in terms of their context within their respective franchises.
One is a new kind of sequel that intersects and interconnects four other series, and which will spawn a similarly extended sequel of its own; another is a mostly redundant reboot; and the last is the third installment in a contained trilogy that potentially could hatch a spin-off or prequel or some other kind of follow up that isn’t a direct continuation of the primary hero.
Following those films, we had a crazy idea for both the title and direction for Marvel mega movie’s sequel: ‘The Avengers Too.’
Last we reported, Marc Webb looked like a goner from 'The Amazing Spider-Man' sequel. Sony said that he had a commitment to 20th Century Fox that would keep him out of the picture. Now Fox is saying they might give him some wiggle room, if he's willing to commit to a bigger deal.
With 'The Amazing Spider-Man' earning mixed reviews, it seemed possible that director Marc Webb might not return for the sequel. And Columbia Pictures chief Doug Belgrad only reinforced that idea in a recent interview.
