Jamie Foxx could be in Amazing Spider-Man 2! (but as who?)

In the final, post-credit scene of The Amazing Spider-Man, Curt Connors comes face to face with a shadowy figure who may become the sequel's villain. But who could that villain be, and is Jamie Foxx the man to play him? Casting spoilers ahead!

According to Variety, Jamie Foxx is deep in negotiations to play a supervillain in the next Spider flick, due out in May 2014. Which villain will he be playing? All signs seem to point toward the supercharged Electro. Electro, as his name suggests, has the power to control electricity, a gift he obtained by being struck by lightning.

In addition to Variety's sources, Jamie Foxx himself just so happened to tweet, "Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well," which is pretty darn telling.

Some questions remain. Namely, what origin will this version of Electro have, and is the shadowy figure we saw at the end of Amazing in fact Electro? There was an awful lot of lightning going down in that scene, so it's entirely possible.

With both Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone on board, it looks like we'll be hearing more about Amazing 2 sooner than we thought.
