Jamie Foxx (Ray, Django Unchained, Dreamgirls, Miami Vice, Stealth) plays the main bad guy in Amazing Spider-Man 2. He is portraying the high-voltage villain Electro. Also, Paul Giamatti will be appearing as Aleksei Sytsevich, AKA the Rhino. Giamatti recently hinted that there are several villains in the background of Amazing Spider-Man 2. Jamie Foxx has admitted that the idea of using the popular villain team known as the Sinister Six for the third film has been seriously discussed. Foxx has said, “They’ve actually talked about doing the Sinister Six, so fingers crossed.”
We may have already seen a Sinister Six plot starting to develop. For those who remained through the ending credits of The Amazing Spider-Man, you’ll recall that Dr. Connors , following his transformation into The Lizard, was visited in his cell by a mysterious figure wanting to recruit him.
Aside from new baddies Electro and the Rhino, as well as the Lizard who is still alive and well, there have also been rumors of Colm Feore playing Adrian Toomes, AKA The Vulture and Felicity Jones possibly playing Felicia Hardy, AKA the Black Cat. Add to that Chris Cooper who is confirmed as playing Norman Osborn, AKA the Green Goblin, and you have six villains who could potentially be the line-up for the Sinister Six in the third film.
Another possible piece of advanced news about future Spider-Man storylines comes from director Marc Web himself, who hints that we may see other super-heroes teaming up with our web-slinging protagonist in the fourth film of the series. Web says, “I think for the fourth movie, what we’ve discovered is there are so many ancillary characters, that have enormous, cinematic potential that there may be other ways to exploit those characters, in a way that is exciting and fun and worthwhile. It might not just be a Spider-Man movie.”
As Foxx says…fingers crossed!
