    It is a good thing that they are doing something unpredictable.

    Interesting. He's a good actor. I guess we'll see how this choice pans out but I can't really say I'm pro/con at the moment.

    Jamie Foxx is a great actor and I can definitely see him playing up the guy who DOESN'T want these powers burdened upon him and thinks of himself as a freak. This is an obviously unconventional choice, almost jarring, but I CAN see it working. Foxx has range. The funny thing is I was watching The Soloist in media production class today while drawing Spider-Man.

    And to add fuel to the fire:

    That's the part I do happen to like. He's def not been on anyone's list to play Electro and probably one of the last people someone would consider. I guess I'm still a bit in shock because it was a surprise to read that info. He's def an awesome actor and I like that the casting is aiming high.

    Wow that was really ****ing unexpected!

    At first I thought (I'm no racist) "I've always viewed Electro as a white guy, this feels wrong in a way". It's just that I'm so used to one image of Electro (I had no problem with Heimdall in Thor however).

    I don't know what I think about this now though. Electro is one of those character who I think I wouldn't mind a "race" (is that the correct word for it?) change. Hey, Kingpin worked wonders being black, which I think I even prefer more now. It would be a completely different thing to make Norman Osborn, Kraven or Doc Ock black for instance. Or to make Storm white in the X-Men.

    Though I do have a problem and that's that to me, Jamie Foxx doesn't really look evil, he looks like a nice guy. Other than that I can totally see him having glowing eyes, shooting electricity everywhere. Could end up be a very inspired choice.

    As most of you guys, I really love how left field it is though.

    See, I don't hate it, only because I suspect they'll really transform him. I can see him playing kind of a guy that's a loser and suddenly gets all this power and goes crazy.

    I wouldn't be worried about that honestly. Great actors are able to transform themselves into their roles.

    I don't know how I feel about this. Jamie, as an actor, is so hit and miss. Mostly miss.

    His tweet would be too much of a coincidence to not be a direct hint at his role in the new Spidey film. This also confirms that Electro will wear some kind of suit.

    Wow I'm really pumped for this now. The more I think about it the more I love it. For you guys who've got skills: let the manips begin!

    I don't mind if Jamie is Electro in the end. He is a superb actor and may even give Electro a kinda more bad ass touch, right?

    Now that you say it, probably not. This was a case of me writing before thinking.
