Jamie Foxx is in negotiations to play the villain in Sony’s sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man.

The Oscar-winner would play Electro, Variety reported Thursday, a character with the power to manipulate and control electricity.

Foxx all but confirmed his casting on Twitter Thursday, when he posted the following: “Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night. Costume fits well.”

The Spidey sequel recently added The Descendants’ actress Shailene Woodley to play Mary Jane Parker in the sequel, which will also see Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone return to reprise the roles of Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy, respectively.

Marc Webb, the director of the first film, will also return to helm the second. Sony plans to release Amazing Spider-Man 2 on May 2, 2014.
