It was revealed yesterday that Jamie Foxx is in negotiations to play Electro in Marc Webb's "Amazing Spider-Man" sequel. At a press conference for the "Amazing Spider-Man" DVD/Blu-ray release, Webb didn't deny that Foxx would play the villain.

"We'll see. I think Jamie Foxx is electrifying," Webb told reporters. "I think Jamie Foxx is one of the most brilliant actors that we have around today. He's such a great character actor. He's a really brilliant guy and I would love to work with him, so you'll be hearing more on that shortly, I'm sure."

Latino Review has posted a whole laundry list of rumors in the comic book movie realm, including that Universal will develop a "Locke & Key" movie based on the IDW series of the same name by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez. The website reports that Universal plans to turn the saga into a trilogy of films.


However, take Latino Review's rumors with a grain of salt. The same report states that FX filmed a second "Powers" pilot and it didn't go over well. However, "Powers" creator Brian Michael Bendis took to Twitter to debunk the rumor.

"Reports in Latino Review about the 'Powers' pilot are 100% false," Bendis tweeted. "Every name and fact are incorrect. Except for where they like my writing. … We've a ways to go to get 'Powers' on the air but as I Tweeted last week good news JUST happened. Stay tuned. FX'll announce stuff when ready."
