Jamie Foxx Talks Electro Costume For THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 And Appearing At Comic-Con
Touching on the costume he wears as the villainous Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Jamie Foxx also confirms that he'll appearing at San Diego Comic-Con this summer to promote the highly anticipated sequel.
Speaking with Yahoo! Movies, Oscar winning actor Jamie Foxx talks briefly about his role as Electro in next summer's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He praises the costume worn by the villain, saying that he had no input into the design but thought that it was "very creative". "Oh, man ― it's so much fun. The costume is great. They were very creative with it." He also talks about sitting in the makeup chair for a long length of time, and states that he merely "chills" during the process. "It's a couple hours ― a couple hours of work, but it's really so much fun. It's part of a remarkable legacy: Spider-Man. I mean, when you're growing up as a kid, you know, that's everything. So to be able to be in that is just amazing."
Finally, Foxx confirms that he will be appearing at this July's San Diego Comic-Con to promote the anticipated sequel, whose presence at the convention has only been speculated up to this point. "Now I'm just waiting to get to Comic-Con and see how people respond to it. [Director] Marc Webb is a genius and Amy Pascal and everybody at Sony have just be so gracious to allow me to have this opportunity. So it's cool." Director Marc Webb and stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone (among others, most likely) will probably appear at SDCC later this summer as well to promote the currently-shooting sequel, even though an official announcement has yet to be made.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper and Sally Field. The film is set to hit theaters May 2nd, 2014.
