Courtesy of spy photos, we now have our first look at what Jamie Foxx‘s Electro will look like in the Amazing Spider-Man 2. It’s far cry from the zany green and yellow costume from the comics. It does however resemble that of the Ultimate Comics version of the character, which this whole Spider-Man reboot is based on anyway. So it makes perfect sense why Electro would look the way he does now. At first the look was startling to me, but have a deeper examination and imagining how he would move on film, I am coming around to the new look.
The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in theaters on May 2, 2014.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2:
In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
