The Amazing Spider-Man
Back before he was James Franco, James Franco starred as Harry Osborn in the original 'Spider-Man' trilogy. Recently he was asked about 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and whether he had seen the new version of Spider-Man. Indeed he had and he had some tough love for the new era of Spider-Man. Finally James Franco breaks his legendary silence on 'The Amazing Spider-Man!'
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.
New on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming this week, new-school superheroics, two Holiday treats and the complications of love.
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.
