We have been getting a steady stream of quality information regarding THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 including an official plot synopsis and a great look at Spidey’s new an improved costume. But the one thing fans have been dying to see is what actor Jamie Foxx (DJANGO UNCHAINED) will look like as the main super villain Electro. Will he maintain the classic green and yellow colors form his most recognized costume? Would he be wearing a big ass yellow mask with lightening bolts jutting out? Is he going to don a tight spandex suit revealing the size of his electrically-charged nether region? The answer to all of these questions is a big fat NO! Is that necessarily a bad thing? I don’t think so. I always find it interesting to see how characters can be re-imagined on the big screen and Electro is no exception. Check out the images below courtesy of Splash News.
Alright so there is really little to no trace of the classic costume we all know and love. But be honest, that would look a bit goofy compared to to tone set for the franchise. And remember, these are not official studio images, but rather, set photos of makeup before any digital manipulation. Even still, I kind of dig this new look for our main baddie and appreciate the subtle (very subtle) lightening-boltesque pattern on his body and face. The lights beaming from inside his hoodie look pretty cool too. So all of that said, I will obviously reserve final judgement until I see this bad ass moving around and in action on the big screen. How did he get that way? How does he move/fight? What does he sound like? If one thing is for sure, it’s that my curiosity has been peaked and I can’t wait to see what this character has in store for us all.
