We recently got a glimpse of Jamie Foxx as Electro for the upcoming Spiderman movie at San Diego Comic-Con. Now Foxx says he wants to take on the role of Spawn in reboot that Todd McFarlane says he has already written.
In an interview with Movies.com at Comic-Con 2013, Foxx spoke briefly about his desire to play the demonic hero from hell. ”Spawn is one, yeah,” Foxx said about projects he’s interested in. “And Mike Tyson. Those are two roles I would just love to do. I’m aggressively pursuing them.”
Usually this is “no big deal” kind of stuff, since almost every actor nowadays says he’s interested in playing a superhero, but this is a bit different considering Foxx’s considerable clout. He’s the kind of guy that can get the ball rolling on projects, and superhero properties are more popular than ever at the moment.
