Director Marc Webb tweeted the above image of Jamie Foxx's Electro alter ego, Maxwell "Max" Dillon, who'll be playing villain in the upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spiderman.

I really didn't care for the first film in this reboot; frankly, I wasn't keen on a Spiderman reboot so soon after the last film in Sam Raimi's trilogy, which was terrible. Give other superheroes their own movies, and stop recycling the same ones over and over. The superhero universe is deep!

I didn't watch the last one in theaters; instead I saw a rental at home. But with Jamie Foxx as Electro in the next one, I just might see it in theaters.

The film is currently shooting in New York. 

Last week, fans snapped the below photos of Jamie Foxx in makeup as Electro, apparently trying to blend in with the common folk.

There'll likely be some CGI added to the final composition of the suit to match the comics.

Electro's superhero villain abilities includes being able to store, project, and manipulate electricity with his body, as well as manipulate magnetic fields. Not only can he fly, but he can also travel along electricity lines and through electrical appliances!

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are returning with Marc Webb (who tweeted the above) returning to the director's chair as well.

Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the sequel.

The Amazing Spider-Man grossed $751 million worldwide, and the sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which will be in 3D, is set to be released on May 2, 2014.
