After deciding to reboot following Sam Raimi's exit from his Spider-Man franchise, Sony/Columbia successfully reignited the series with The Amazing Spider-Man, which arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray today.
Critics cited the reboot's lack of an "untold story" that was promoted to be the movie's significant change from the previous trilogy, but there's one category where the reboot has been able to separate itself from its predecessors: villains. While Raimi's movies hinted at the inevitable arrival of the Lizard, The Amazing Spider-Man delivered, and it would appear that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will also bring a new villain to the big screen: Electro.
Jamie Foxx (Ray) is rumored to be up for the role, with Foxx tweeting a not-so-subtle hint that's he's accepted the part, and director Marc Webb quickly following suit. Even though Amazing Spider-Man 2 is about a year and a half away, we thought the time was right to see which of the two villains is a better foe for your friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield).
