First photos of Jamie Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

foxx-electroWith so many comic book movies in production right now it’s hard to know where to look. But if something’s going to catch your eye, it has to be this! While every comic book movie has its villains there’s just something special about the ones Spider-Man has to go up against (please don’t kill me Loki fans). Doc Ock, Green Goblin, Hobgoblin, Rhino, they’re all classic and highly iconic characters.

Amazing Spider Man 2, The (Jamie Foxx - Electro)

This time it’s the turn of Electro, being played by acting heavyweight Jamie Foxx. As you can see the design is far from the classic yellow and green. Here’s what Jamie Foxx had to say about it:

“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 happen. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff.”

If you think he looks cool now just wait until you see him after post production. The LEDs in his hood are designed to give him a glow but they won’t be visible once the effects are finalised. And from the sounds of things the effects guys have some playing around to do before they have the look fully decided.


So what do you think? Excited for the sequel yet? The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out 18th April 2014 so we’ve still got a bit of a wait!
