The sequel to "The Amazing Spider-Man" is beginning to take shape, with Andrew Garfield already attached to reprise his role as the webbed wonder.

Now, Columbia Pictures is reaching out to Jamie Foxx to join the franchise. Though it's not certain which character the "Ray" star would play, he may have given us a pretty big hint on his Twitter account.

On Thursday (November 1), the 44-year-old tweeted, "Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well.," referring to the Marvel supervillain who wields the power of electricity.

In other casting news, Shailene Woodley has been offered the part of Spider-Man's love interest Mary Jane Watson. Production is set to begin early next year.
