The movie was good and actors Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone were excellent in the roles of Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy.
Marvel’s currently working on the follow-up to the film and today we have our first look at the villain who will be featured: Electro. The electricity-wielding baddy also known by the name Max Dillon will be portrayed by Jamie Foxx.
