We’ve all known that Jamie Foxx was going to play Electro in the upcoming ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘ for quite some time now. We’ve even seen a few shots of him in makeup before any of the special effects were added. Now we’re finally able to have a chance to see what Electro will look like in his full post-production glory thanks to Entertainment Weekly:
While we won’t be seeing Spidey return to the big screen until the movie opens in May 2nd, 2014, I’m sure we’ll have plenty of trailers to view before that time. In fact, I’m sure during Comic-Con we’re finally going to get a teaser trailer for Marc Webb’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’. Ideally it will be one that will show us what Electro is going to look like in full motion as well.
Until that comes out though, this picture that pits Spidey (Andrew Garfield) vs Electro is going to be all we’ll really get for now. With the origin story now told, Webb stated:
“With the first one I felt it was important to retell that origin story. But that was kind of brutal because people were so familiar with it. Now that the origin story is done? We’re off to the races. It’s incredibly liberating.”
So, in theory, we should be getting quite a bit more action in this one. Of course when we have Electro, Rhino, and possibly hints of The Vulture and the Green Goblin , I’m sure action aplenty will be on screen before us!
Now that I’ve seen this cover, I’m 100% more excited about them picking the new look over the ridiculous lightning bolt outfit he used to wear in the comics. What do you think about Electro as a villain. Are you excited?
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.
