Marc Webb reflects on his plans for Electro as far back as 'The Amazing Spider-Man' (video)

During press for The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012, Marc Webb played coy when it came to naming the possible villains for the sequel.

As it turns out, Webb always had plans for Electro, with the mysterious man in the hat from The Amazing Spider-Man‘s mid-credits scene (played by Michael Massee) an early candidate to play the villain according to the director.

His identity IS revealed in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Electro was obviously played by Jamie Foxx, but it’s interesting to think about what might have been based on the comments which can be seen in the video above!

Anyway, if you were one of those who speculated that Massee was Electro at the time, then pat yourself on the back as you were half right at least…
