According to Variety, Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx is currently in talks for a villain role in the sequel to Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man, and the word on the street is that he’s playing Electro, teased in the mid-credit scene at the end of the movie.

Foxx tweeted playfully, “Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well.”

Commenting at a launch event for the DVD/Blu-ray, director Marc Webb laid it on pretty thick, saying, “I think Jamie Foxx is electrifying! I think Jamie Foxx is one of the best actors around today. He’s such a great character actor and he’s a really brilliant guy. I would love to work with him and you’ll be hearing more on that shortly, I’m sure.”
