First Look at Jamie Foxx as Electro on the Set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (SPOILERS)


Electro vs. Spider-Man Comic Book

The big news around the Fanboy Interwebs this morning is that someone has snapped pics of Jamie Foxx on the New York City set of Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″. That in itself isn’t so world-shattering, but what is kinda interesting is that Foxx is playing Electro in the upcoming comic book sequel, and in the pics (which you can see for yourself below), he’s all blue like a Na’vi extra from James Cameron’s “Avatar”.

Or a Smurf in a hoodie.

Foxx is playing Max Dillon in the movie, and from what I’m reading online, this is the Ultimate version of the supervillain, one that doesn’t wear the goofy/cool yellow-and-green duds like in the pic above. Here’s a pic of Ultimate Electro:

And now what Jamie Foxx looks like on the set of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ (via Daily Mail), complete with light-up hoodie:

I can dig it. No need going same-o, same-o. This new “Spidey” franchise already feels like it’s going right back to the Raimi ones already, mind as well mix it up a tad, no?

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Sally Field, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Martin Sheen, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, and saves NYC again next year, May 2, 2014.

    HELL YEAH!!! I was hoping they’d go with something more along the Spectacular route witht he containment suit, but this looks really good. Only thing is, does this mean we’ll have a naked electro. That’s one thing about the Ultimate version I liked and disliked was that he was pure energy and would burn his clothes up.

    Looks great so far. The LEDs around the hood may be taken out during post? Maybe there just to help with the “lighting” effect?


    I saw that spider-man toon on DISNEY XD and never thought that dude would
    wind up like that guy!
