With the Amazing Spider-Man post-credit scene featuring an enigmatic individual who seemingly appeared and disappeared in conjunction with lightning strikes, it's thought that it might have been Spider-Man villain, Electro.

There was previous mention that Electro might be featured in the Amazing Spider-Man 2 and now a report from Variety states that Jamie Foxx is in talks to play the role.

Interestingly enough, Jaimie Foxx even tweeted last night that he was Elektro for Halloween.

In the Marvel comics, Max Dillon is an electrical engineer who gets struck by lightning which causes him to mutate giving him powers, while in the Ultimate Comics universe Electro gains his powers as a result of experimentation.

The "Amazing Spider-Man 2" swings into theaters May 2nd, 2014 directed by Marc Webb starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Shailene Woodley.
