"The Amazing Spider-Man" director Marc Webb used his Twitter account today to announce that "Chronicle" and "Lawless" scene stealer Dane DeHaan has been cast as Harry Osborn in the upcoming sequel to the superhero franchise reboot.

DeHaan was one of the earliest names mentioned as a potential candidate for the part last month. Meanwhile, Jamie Foxx gave a short interview with Et confirming his role as the villain Electro in the movie.

Foxx says: "Electro is a great character. I met with the director, Mark Webb, I met with Andrew Garfield, and we talked. … I think Electro will be an exciting character to play because he's a … genius electrician-type person, and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world, and the next thing you know he turns it on."
