Here’s Your First Official Look at Jamie Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

You’ve probably already seen those set images of Jamie Foxx in full (or, well, mostly full) Electro form in Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″, and apparently the studio thinks it’s pretty pointless to keep that part of the movie hidden for much longer.

So here’s your first look at Jamie Foxx as Electro (via EW) in full uniform and complete with purple, er, face paint? I don’t know if that’s all CGI or what, but it sure looks wacky, and nothing like I recall the character looking from the comics.

I guess giving him a “lightning” mask would have been too much. Right? (Probably not as much as a guy in a Spider uniform, but whatever.)

And while we’re at it, the mag also put out covers for “Carrie” (featuring star Chloe Moretz soaked in blood — a little light on the blood there, guys), along with Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield from “Ender’s Game”. There’s also one for a British sci-fi show called “Orphan Black” that’s getting tons of press, but I’ve yet to see.

Check them all out below, check them outers.

    I guess Electro is gonna be one of those things we gotta see in motion….I’m such an optimist

      I’m with you there. Guessing they’ll add electric arcs to make his head look like a plasma globe, but that’s an effect that could really really look bad

    Ultimate Electro!!! Nice! love how they made his skin almost transparent. Wonder where he gets the suit with the lightning bolts on it though?

  • Skilledfingerz

    Better look than the silly comic costume!

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    Might not look like this in the Amazing Comics, but this is pretty much his look in the Ultimate Universe.
