Jamie Foxx’s Electro Revealed In The Amazing Spider-Man 2April 16, 2013
Check out the first on-set pics of Jamie Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, due out next year.
Back in December, Jamie Foxx revealed that he would be playing Electro in the sequel to last year’s successful reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He thankfully confirmed at the time that he would not be donning the awful green and yellow classic costume from the comics, and today we’ve gotten a first look at Foxx in costume on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He’s completely blue, in what looks to be a nod to the Ultimate version of the villain.
“It won’t be green and yellow. It will be a different color. They (the producers) want something for the future. They want to have it more grounded and not as comic book-y, so it won’t be green and yellow. They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happened. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff. In the script, this villain is the first time it’s be written really, really well. Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb both commented on how great the script is, so it should be an exciting time.” – Jamie Foxx
He’s wearing a hoodie and jeans, in what might just be a temporary look while he’s on the run from law enforcement. The clothes have a burnt/ tattered look to them if you look closely.
What do you think? Are you excited for The Amazing Spider-Man 2? We’re still a bit worried ever since we heard Paul Giamatti might be playing Rhino…
