Director Marc Webb Confirms Electro Will Be The Villain Of SPIDER-MAN 2

Director Marc Webb while promoting the home release of the first Amazing Spider-Man talked to Collider. Webb doesn't reveal much about the casting of the sequel, although praises Jamie Foxx. Or even it's overall direction but confirmed that Maxwell Dillion (Electro) is involved along with Oscorp. It's the first time someone attached to the production has confirmed that Electro will indeed be the villain.

Back in 2007, a pre-Spider-Man 4 Sam Raimi was already gearing up to use either Electro or Vulture for his next installment in a chat with MTV. He went with Ben Kingsley as Vulture and Anne Hathaway as Black Cat for Spidey 4. The film would eventually get scrapped and Amazing Spider-Man was put into development instead. Kingsely went on to play the Mandarin in Iron Man 3 while Hathaway walked away with a breakout performance in The Dark Knight Rises as Catwoman.
