‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Set Pics Reveal First Look At Jamie Foxx’s Glowy Electro

If you were giddy at the prospect of seeing Oscar winner Jamie Foxx adorned with a lightning-bolt headpiece in his role as Electro in next year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, brace yourself for disappointment. New photos from the Marc Webb-directed film show Foxx will be a distinctly more Ultimate version of the character, with blue skin (or at least temporarily blue before digital touch-ups) and a light-up hoodie in place of the old-school green and yellows.

Check out a few of the shots, along with some potentially spoilery info about the movie version of the character’s origin, after the jump.


The movie’s Max Dillon seemingly has an origin pretty close to that of his original comics counterpart. He’s an electrical engineer who gets struck by lightning as opposed to the Ultimate version of the villain, who was a genetically-enhanced criminal-for-hire.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in the U.S. on May 2, 2014.
