electro jamie foxx amazing spider-man 2

Seeing as how The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a prospective blockbuster concerning a famous comic book character, we are contractually obligated  to obsess about every possible facet of the film, from casting to special effects to costume and make-up design to plot points.  And so, of course, the possible reveal of how Jamie Foxx becomes Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is something we must discuss.

According to The Daily Bugle, a Sony’s viral site for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 named after the in-universe newspaper, Norman Osborne’s Oscorp Industries has developed an experimental hydroelectric power plant “that could reshape New York’s power landscape.”

So, we’re going to go ahead and assume that the new hydroelectric power plant will somehow go awry, leading to the origin of Electro, thereby connecting yet another Spider-Man villain to arch-baddie Norman Osborne (the Lizard in The Amazing Spider-Man had a similar connection).  And we must assume this, because this is the internet and we can’t wait for things like concrete facts and confirmations:

Despite the outraged cries of protesters that have dogged the project since its inception, Oscorp Industries is set to flip the switch on the construction of an experimental hydroelectric power plant that could reshape New York’s power landscape.

“What do you want me to say? That this is a bad idea? Oh, you do? Fine. This is a bad idea,” said average New York taxi driver, Mike Lortz when asked his thoughts about the power plant.

A wave of the Mayor’s pen on Resolution 2013.2.C4A was enough to signify the end of months of legal maneuvering, bureaucratic red tape, and political wrangling.Norman Osborn was unavailable for comment, leaving company spokesman Donald Menken to succinctly sum up the announcement, “Oscorp’s patented ‘free-flow’ power grid design will power the entire city for the next 20 years.”Though fears of an impending city-destroying catastrophe are running high, Oscorp’s stock still managed to climb after a week of tumultuous trading.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for a May 2, 2014 release date.
