Jamie Foxx Got Emotional On First Day Filming THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

Have superheroes reached a point where the Hollywood actors who star in their movie adaptations feel just as passionate about them as the comic book readers? "… that suit, that Spider-Man suit…," said Foxx.

If you recall, just a few days ago, a report surfaced that Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill got emotional watching the finished product of Zack Snyder's Superman reboot for the first time. Today, another similar story has surfaced for actor Jamie Foxx who plays Electro in Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man sequel. Foxx admits that his first time on set filming scenes he too almost shed a few manly tears. "It’s been fantastic. [Director] Marc Webb has been fantastic to work with.," said Foxx. He continued, "What I’ve learned on the set… that suit, that Spider-Man suit… the first thing I had to shoot it was like… not tears, but this is the real thing. It was mindblowing." Once upon a time in Hollywwod, actors would know next to nothing about the comic book characters they were portraying on screen. While we still aren't completely removed from that era, it's nice to see that things are transitioning more towards actors being just as passionate about the characters as the fan base.

It doesn't shock me that electro has feelings

Eh? Eh? See what I did there ;)

Too bad it's probably going to be as terrible as the first, but it's okay Jamie. You just weren't meant to be involved in a good Spidey franchise
Jollem - 6/8/2013, 1:30 PM
hell, yeah. this was cool news. can't wait to see the interactions with garfield and foxx. andy's really great at working with people
Jollem - 6/8/2013, 1:30 PM
fun fact: DrDoom is a spider-man enemy
DrDoom - 6/8/2013, 1:32 PM
Yes. I've been a Spider-Man enemy ever since Amazing Spider-Man Vol 1 Issue 5

@ DrDoom

Do you even like any non-Marvel studios Marvel films?
MrCBM56 - 6/8/2013, 1:33 PM
I don't care what anyone say, this movie will own. Watch and see.

And I know this is off topic, but what happened to that Man of Steel TV spot that was just posted?

@jollem

You're supporting a marvel/Sony movie?! I guess your not a marvel hater like I thought you were!

:P
Jollem - 6/8/2013, 1:35 PM
@MrCBM56 - was wondering that, myself
Dane - 6/8/2013, 1:35 PM
Too right, Jollem.

@NapoleonDynamite

Probably not since everyone's sucking Marvels balls now and saying how terrible Sony/Fox have been to Spider-Man and X-Men when they used to praise their films. Because Marvel studios has never, EVER, made a mediocre or disappointing movie, except Thor, Cap First Avengers and Iron Man 3.
Jollem - 6/8/2013, 1:39 PM
@MrCBM56 - oh, no. not at all. some people understand why i do what i do sometimes. it's all in fun and it's mostly meant to show certain people that the same silly stuff can be said about the things they like or just pretty much everything can. people just assume things about me and call me names when i pick on whatever. i like all kinds of stuff :)

I get cap n im3 were let downs but you really put Thor in the same toilet bowl as those 2?

Whoa, whoa! Tge first Avenger is the best marvel SOLO movie yet. And I love what Sony and Fox did with thier superhero movies. I don't understand the hate.

The ORIGINAL Spider-Man trilogy could be compared to the Dark Knight trilogy.

Spider-Man/Batman Begins=Average

Spider-Man 2/The dark knight=Above average

Spider-Man 3/TDKR=mediocre even though I live both films, that's how many fans see them.

Jollem

I understand man, you're good at what you do.
ekrolo2 - 6/8/2013, 1:45 PM
@Kjo0212

It was for me, I expected this epic, sweeping adventure through the 9 Realms. What I ended up getting was a movie where Thor goes through the most rushed romance and character development of all time on Earth and nothing happens through the middle part of the movie for the most part.
rocky - 6/8/2013, 1:45 PM
He got emotional?
How black is that exactly?? :)
PhoenixKing - 6/8/2013, 1:46 PM
This film has the potential to be one of the best Comic Book Movies next year imho, and I really hope it is, just to see the haters' reactions.
ekrolo2 - 6/8/2013, 1:47 PM
@MrCBM56

I couldnt get through First Avenger, it was just so boring and uninteresting I couldnt even watch it halfway through before leaving the theater because nothing happened and what did was just cringe worthy.

For me it goes like this:

Spider-Man 1: Bleh, Batman Begins: Best superhero origin movie along with Iron Man 1 and my fav CBM ever.

Spider-Man 2/Dark Knight: Amazing

Spider-Man 3: I like it more than most, TDKR: Its a good end to the the Nolanverse in my opinion.
MrCameron - 6/8/2013, 1:48 PM
@ekrolo

Damn straight.

Now, everybody hates on any non-Marvel Studios Marvel film.

And agree with you about Thor too.
ekrolo2 - 6/8/2013, 1:49 PM
@KryptonianAbominationClone

So instead of getting multiple movies where you get to know the character and genuinely like him/her before their demise, you'd rather have them bite the dust in their first appearance. You clearly know nothing about build up and paying it off later on.
shaunmagg - 6/8/2013, 1:49 PM
An actor that has an emotional involvement to his film with always give a better performance. Which is more important than how close to the comic book the character looks like.
Jollem - 6/8/2013, 1:54 PM
@MrCBM56 - shh. i work best when the spotlight's not on me :)
Highflyer - 6/8/2013, 1:57 PM
I's weird how people become so convinced that a film will be awesome (Man of steel) yet give a movie a fail (ASM 2) before a single trailer is released. smh
MrCBM56 - 6/8/2013, 1:57 PM
Jollem

Haha ok, Got you!
exe - 6/8/2013, 2:00 PM
What can you do? Bitches are quick to jump the bandwagon.
TheRationalNerd - 6/8/2013, 2:02 PM
I' starting to think that all films releasing in 2014 are going to deliver HARD!!!!

We have...

-The Amazing Spider-Man 2
-X-Men: Days of Future Past
-Captain America: The Winter Soldier
-Guardians of the Galaxy
-Transformers 4
-Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
-Godzilla
-Jurassic Park 4
-Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Fúck me these actors are blubbering wimps.

DrDoom - 6/8/2013, 2:08 PM
@InstantJustice

They're not t-u-f tuf like Urban, right?

lololololol
shaunmagg - 6/8/2013, 2:08 PM
@ Highflyer- It's because they see one filming photo that has yet to be edited. Since the character is not wearing a big yellow lighting bolt on his face they assume its not going to be good movie. Same went with Bane because he wasn't 7ft tall guy weighing 350lbs of pure muscle.

Hey some may think it's silly but I think near-tears/full-tears are great for this genre. It means it's finally becoming a respected movie genre filled with true drama, instead of a fad that will pass.

You can thank NOLAN for doing that. If Nolan hadn't gone the serious/semi-realistic route this genre would never have been taken seriously as art. That's just the reality. 10 years from now who know maybe one of these comicbook superhero films will be nominated for a Best Picture.

Some hate the drama Nolan brought, because it "kills" the fun of the comics; I for one love it.

ekrolo2 - 6/8/2013, 2:11 PM
@INSTANTJUSTICE

Yeah because a guy cant cry over something hes passionate or happy about right?
rocky - 6/8/2013, 2:18 PM
Wow Nolan again?
OK so he took everything away that attracted comic book readers to the comics. You know the fantasy aspect.

No if any cbm stays stays true or fairly loyal to the source Nolan needs to get no credit. If anyone at all maybe Singer.

But it's all part of the evolution in the end and no one person is responsible when all is said and done IMO
rocky - 6/8/2013, 2:28 PM
Oh ok "saline" LOL Josh
Now laugh at mine too :)
DioFoRio - 6/8/2013, 2:31 PM

DioFoRio - 6/8/2013, 2:32 PM
