Since news broke a while back that Jamie Foxx would be playing Electro in the next addition to the new Spider-Man franchise – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – fans were intrigued to know what the multi-talented entertainer would look like once kitted out. Well wait no more. Freshly released images have now appeared thanks to some snapshots during filming in New York.
While fans of the comic book character Electro might be disappointed that the green and yellow has gone, looking at what they’ve actually done is pretty interesting. With a hagged look to him, Foxx’s character now appears to sit in the same dark category that both Bane and The Joker did in the Dark Knight movies – frightening yet visually epic. With that said, could this be the introduction of the best Spider-Man movie yet?
Foxx recently sat down with BlackFilm to discuss the new image of the character:
“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.”
With his hood filled with a set of bioluminescent blue lights, Foxx’s face offered a glistening ice effect that will surely look even better once the film is complete and put on the big screen. Take a look at the images below for a more in-depth look.
