Jamie Foxx gives an update on Electro in “Amazing Spider-Man 2” saying the character will not feature the Marvel Comics green and yellow costume, and ironically enough, says that Electro will be grounded.
Foxx tells Blackfilm.com:
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 bookie, 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.
In the script, this villain is the first time it’s be written well. Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb both commented on how great the script is, so it should be an exciting time
Of course, that is not the only Electro in the Marvel Universe as Foxx’s costume could resemble the Ultimate Comics versions, which The Avengers movie took after with their characters.
The “Amazing Spider-Man 2” swings into theaters May 2nd, 2014 directed by Marc Webb starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan and Martin Sheen.
