I have had a fantasy since as long as I can remember of a girl using the "tiger" line on me. I think if one ever does, I'd probably be ready to marry her. shog[1].gif

When speaking of pictures of Kirsten Dunst, the word "horrible" is redundant.

That's what I said, we need a FEEDBACK session.

Not sure how I missed that. I think I saw the picture of Dunst and blacked out for a few posts.

I have the opposite reaction, I tend to become more intelligent. I think because the blood drains out of my penis.

I just finished watching Amazing Spider-Man. Wow!! I really regret not seeing it in theaters. I definitely liked it better than Raimi's Spider-Man's (we all agree that 3 was a pile of crap, anyways). The web slingin' through the cranes was icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Definitely a great origin movie and I like how they have this big mystery surrounding his father. Can't wait for the sequel.

Jamie Foxx Up for Villain Role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Jamie Foxx, who soon headlines Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, is up for a major role in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Variety has the news and, while they're only able to confirm so far that Foxx would play a villain, they're maintaining that rumors point to that character being Electro.

Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Shailene Woodley are attached to star in the May 2, 2014 release. This time around, the script arrives from Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt.

Electro has never definitively appeared on the big screen, though some fan speculation has suggested that the mysterious figure (played by Michael Massee) featured in The Amazing Spider-Man's end credits was, in fact, our first look at the character. First appearing in 1964's "The Amazing Spider-Man" #9, Electro's real name is Max Dillon and he has the power to control electricity.

UPDATE: Jamie Foxx has already semi-confirmed the rumors with the following tweet:

It's possible that the actor is pulling a joke on fans based on today's rumors, but official confirmation is likely to follow. Check back for updates as soon as they become available.

To me this is good news. Jamie Foxx is one of the most talented male actors in Hollywood.

Marc Webb Talks Jamie Foxx, Electro and The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Although he's still unable to officially confirm today's report that Jamie Foxx will play Electro in his upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man sequel, director Marc Webb spoke today at a press event for next week's DVD and Blu-ray release of the first film and was more than willing to tiptoe around the issue.

"I think Jamie Foxx is electrifying!" Webb laughed when asked if the actor would, indeed, appear in the sequel. "I think Jamie Foxx is one of the best actors around today. He's such a great character actor and he's a really brilliant guy. I would love to work with him and you'll be hearing more on that shortly, I'm sure."

When asked what other Spider-Man characters he was particularly fond of, Webb again mentioned Max Dillon's electrically charged alter ego.

"I like Electro," Webb smiled. "I'm fascinated by Norman Osborn and the different inflections of him. And Harry. Mary Jane and Gwen are always interesting to me."

It's been confirmed that Shailene Woodley will be playing the role of Mary Jane Watson and early reports suggest that casting is now underway for Harry Osborn as well. Teased in the first film, it's very possible that Webb named the elder Osborn because we'll also be seeing him on the big screen in 2014.

Regardless of what villain or villains appear, Webb says that the most important trait of the sequel's big bad is a personal connection to Spider-Man himself.

"What makes villains interesting to me is what they bring out in Peter,"
Webb explained. "What challenges they provide for him. What's great about Marvel and other comics is that often there's a pre-existing relationship... It's not just about the physical conflict he has, but the emotional ones as well."

Ultimately, though, the sequel offers Webb a clean slate to take Spider-Man to places he's never been before on the big screen.

"What's exciting about moving forward is that, in the first movie, I had to still honor some of the important elements of the origin story," Webb says. "But I also wanted to redefine the context of it because I'm building a different universe than what we've seen before. A lot of the nuance is quite different. Now, as we're approaching the sequel, it's really exciting because I feel quite liberated. I have a universe that's my own. I don't have an obligation to the origin story. It's pretty fun and exciting and I can dig deeper into the parents."

As the sequel gears up for production, Webb says he's already had conversations about the viral marketing and that he's certain the sequel will offer as in-depth an ARG as the first film did. He also teased that the sequel may feature some scenes shot specifically for IMAX.

Check back soon for video interviews with Webb and the special effects artist behind The Amazing Spider-Man. The film itself arrives on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D on November 9.

Here here for James Franco to reprise his role as Harry!!

EDIT: and maybe it's just the first few hits on my google search, but Shailene Woodley looks a bit young to be playing MJ. (Despite the Dunst abomination) Always pictured her as... oh, I don't know... hot...?

"Face it tiger, you just hit the jackpot." Shailene Woodley is an attractive young woman but hardly jackpot material.
