Los Angeles - Jamie Foxx is in talks to star in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel.

The 44-year-old actor is in the running to play villain Electro in the superhero film opposite Andrew Garfield, who portrays the heroic webslinger.

Electro - aka Max Dillon - is able to control electricity after being struck by lightning and was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and appeared in Marvel Comics' The Amazing Spider-Man issue 9 back in 1964.

Halloween costume

The evil character has never appeared in a Spider-Man film before.

The movie is scheduled for release on 2 May 2014, and the first film's director Marc Webb is to return to helm the project.

The script has been written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, with a draft by Jeff Pinkner.

Foxx seems very keen on the role and he even dressed as Electro to celebrate Halloween this week, in a possible hint to fans.

The actor can next be seen in Quentin Tarantino's new film Django Unchained as a slave turned bounty hunter. The movie hits cinema screens in January.
