The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx is reportedly in early talks to play the classic Marvel villain Electro in director Marc Webb's sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man.
While Sony Pictures took some liberties with Peter Parker's origin in The Amazing Spider-Man, the studio apparently plans to get back in line with Marvel comics history with the 2014 sequel, at least in one regard: the death of Gwen Stacy.
The Descendents actress Shailene Woodley has been offered the role of Mary Jane Watson in director Marc Webb's follow-up to The Amazing Spider-Man.
Sony Pictures has confirmed that director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield will return for the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man, which will open May 2, 2014. Emma Stone is in negotiations to reprise her role.
Marc Webb wants to direct the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man, but he needs to strike a deal with Fox in order to return to the Sony Pictures franchise.
At CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Sony Pictures offered a no-frills presentation with footage from The Amazing Spider-Man, James Bond in Skyfall and Men in Black 3, among others.
Although Marc Webb's franchise reboot doesn't open for another 11 months, Sony has already announced a date for the sequel, which is being written by James Vanderbilt.
