Here is the original article which talks about this: http://whatculture.com/film/5-things-that-will-make-or-break-the-amazing-spider-man-series.php This is what is mentioned, word-for-word: 5. Jamie Foxx Needs To Be A Great Electro Jamie Foxx is a jack of all trades. The man can basically do anything and turn it to gold: he can sing, act, and even do stand-up comedy. If this reboot is going to hit it, Jamie Foxx needs to be on – he needs to be electric. Now obviously Electro is going to be taken in a different direction than what is seen in the comics, as he’s being played by Jamie Foxx, and it has already been revealed that the costume is going to be different. The reason Foxx is so critical to the series is because not many people like the Lizard in the last film, and the film-makers have to take the opportunity of the sequel to launch an even bigger villain. I don’t believe that Electro is the biggest villain we’ll see in this series, but he certainly deserves his debut in film, and I feel will make or break this series. If Foxx nails it, then everyone’s faith will be restored in Spider-Man and the series will gear up for the third film and possibly the biggest Spider-Man film ever made. If this doesn’t work out, then we will have had two Spider-Man movies in a row have been made with villains that aren’t considered to be that great and people will be skeptical to go to a third movie. Given the pedigree of his work, I really hope that Foxx can make this a memorable villain who fits the project. 4. Critical Characters Need To Be Introduced This was one of my biggest problems with The Amazing Spider-Man. I understand that trading Mary Jane for Gwen Stacy was something that really worked, but I really missed Harry Osborne and J. Jonah Jameson. Harry has been Peter’s friend since high school, and he wasn’t seen once in the first movie, though J. Jonah Jameson being left out is more acceptable because he isn’t a crucial character, but he was so funny in the Raimi films that I was hoping to get my comic relief from him in that movie too. I am happy to hear that Mary Jane, and Harry will be in the next film, and that J.K Simmons would like to reprise his role as Jameson. These characters inclusion in the next film will be something that greatly bolsters the quality of the film, and with the mystery of Norman Osborne still out in the unknown, hopefully Harry’s inclusion will help to reveal some of those details. 3. What’s The Deal With Norman Osborne? Mr. Osborne is somebody that is mentioned often but never seen. In the first film, it is revealed that he is sick and has some sort of life threatening disease that Curt Connors was working on curing before he turned into the Lizard. There are a few things I want to know concerning Mr. Osborne. What disease does he have? How much time does he actually have to live? Will this contribute to his becoming the Green Goblin? Was he the man in the prison at the end of the first movie? I think that the second movie will introduce Osborne along with providing at least a few of these answers. I have a feeling that Green Goblin will end up being the main antagonist in the third movie, and this movie should also serve as development toward becoming that character. If Jamie Foxx can warm the seat for Green Goblin in an epic third movie, then this could be a series that goes more than three movies. 2. The Secret Behind Peter’s Parents This is also one of my biggest problems with the first movie, more so than the last point. It seemed like the beginning of the film was centered around Peter finding out who he was, and what had happened to his parents, but as soon as he became Spider-Man, that all disappeared. Just because Peter finally gets a full-time role as a superhero doesn’t mean that the writers can string us along and leave us high and dry. Although this is something I think that is completely original to the movie (the mystery behind his parents), this is something that intrigued me and something that I really want to find out. Hopefully this is something that further gets explained in the second movie. 1. Peter Needs To Become More Developed When I say this, I don’t mean physically even though Garfield is a twig. Peter needs to grow in this film as a person. In the first movie he is a high school student unsure of his place in life and insecure about his identity with the mystery of his parents. Not only should he continue to dig and look for those answers, he needs to also grow up. He needs to get a job and start to mature behind and show more of a person behind the “geeky” teen that he was in the first one. If Peter starts to mature and continue to embrace his role as Spider-Man along with learning how to become an adult, we will have an “amazing” time watching “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” Still don’t like my jokes? I’m sorry, I’ll stop. Did you like the first movie? Do you think the second has a chance to redeem itself if you didn’t? Let us know what you need to see in this next movie in the comments below. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I am confident enough that the Parents storyline (#2) and Norman Osborn (#3) will be explained. We are getting the critical characters (#4) the author mentions in the next movie, so there is that. I do believe Peter's character will get more development, if done right. (#1) About Jamie Foxx as a great Electro, only time will tell. (#5) What do you guys think?
