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.

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 exception of poor Katy Perry, everyone was a winner at the box office this week. Seriously. Of the top ten films, nine of them either opened well or held well, making this one of the most consistent weekends of the summer season. Filmmakers and studios: pat yourselves on the backs.
