If you thought the casting of Jamie Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider Man 2 was unexpected, wait until you see what he looks like. Lets bare in mind that Electro is one of the campier villains, so doing a live-action version of him would’ve been difficult. Regardless, I don’t think any of us expected the creatives behind TASM2 were gonna go so… Smurfy.
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. Check em’ out below:
It’s BLUE the villain is BLUE!!
Alright, so they go ultimate universe version…. why not? Hey, at least he’s more attractive than the girl playing Mary Jane. Definitely not what I expected, but I’m sure it’ll look cool with all the CG lightning added. I’m confident he’ll is gonna make a way better villian than the lizard.
The movie also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Martin Sheen, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn. The movie will be released on May 2nd, 2014
