First look at Jamie Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2


UPDATE: With even more images!

A lot of people following the production of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have wondered just what Jamie Foxx would look like as Electro. We all knew it wouldn’t be the cheesy green and yellow costume from the 616 universe, but more along the lines of Electro in the Ultimates universe. The Daily Mail has provided new photos from the Times Square set of Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man sequel revealing our first good look at Jamie Foxx as Maxwell Dillon, better known as the supervillain Electro. So which version have they chosen for the film?

Covered with blue, Emperor-like makeup, I personally think this is a great interpretation of Electro, and I can’t help but see the inspiration of the look by InFamous’ Cole MacGrath. Although I’m not saying Foxx looks like Cole, but I’m saying he just reminds me of him. One can expect that the visual effects team will add some electricity running through Foxx’s face as well.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 slings into theaters July 3rd, 2014.
