"What you’ll see is that, for his whole life, no one is talking to him. People have stolen his ideas at the big company. He’s a nobody. At a certain point, Spider-Man bumps into him and says, ‘You’re my guy. You’re my ears and eyes on the street.’ Then he says his name, [Max] and no one has ever said [Max] Dillon’s name. He goes, 'Wow' and, when Spider-Man leaves, he sort of thinks that, 'I am Spider-Man’s partner!' He’s cutting out Spider-Man’s face and pasting it on all his boards..." That's what Jamie Foxx said earlier this year about what we should expect from Max Dillon before his transformation into Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. As you can see from the following image Tweeted today by Marc Webb, the character really does have some sort of obsession with Spidey! This is also a far different look for the actor than we're used to...











In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.


STARRING:

Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy
Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson
Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon/Electro
Sally Fields as Aunt May

JatevinM - 4/21/2013, 9:20 AM
LMAO that inexcusable comb over though lol
Tony93 - 4/21/2013, 9:20 AM
but hey, maybe he can act well with this character
DaenerysTargaryen - 4/21/2013, 9:22 AM
For a second I thought that was Samuel Jackson from Jurassic park :P
jlabatman - 4/21/2013, 9:24 AM
Reminds me of the Jim Carrey/Riddler
Nadj76 - 4/21/2013, 9:25 AM
Did I do that?

In Steve Urkel voice.
GamerKT - 4/21/2013, 9:25 AM
That hair is [frick]in' terrible. I hope it's on purpose.
MrDonut - 4/21/2013, 9:32 AM
[frick]... Im guessing another sympathetic villain... Why the [frick] can't he do Electro like he is? A super [frick]ing powered thug...

xfan320 - 4/21/2013, 9:33 AM
I love that they're changing the character a little bit...

It would be nice if there was a little shout out to the yellow/green suit..


Maybe during an oscorp hospital scene? A ravencroft institute prison uniform perhaps?
RPD - 4/21/2013, 9:34 AM
"another sympathetic villain"? You aren't talking about Lizard, are you? He wasn't sympathetic at all...
blvdnoise - 4/21/2013, 9:34 AM
@jlabatman Just what I thought! Perhaps a little over the top..
Lindsey35 - 4/21/2013, 9:35 AM
Why, when at a slight glance, am I reminded of Samuel L Jackson with a creepy haircut?
Nick56 - 4/21/2013, 9:36 AM
for [frick]s sake! this movie is getting worse everyday.
TheKingsHead - 4/21/2013, 9:36 AM
Oh God!!!
SuperDude001 - 4/21/2013, 9:36 AM
Kinda cool character just still don't know if Foxx is right for it...
CharlesLord - 4/21/2013, 9:36 AM
i cant deal with the comb over man...
thewolfx - 4/21/2013, 9:38 AM
This move has face/palm stench
Lindsey35 - 4/21/2013, 9:40 AM
I'm interested. But I think this is another thing for people to place early judgment on.
Oh wait...that's how everything goes on this movie, right?
the1egend1ives - 4/21/2013, 9:43 AM
You know this picture makes me think that it's of Max Dillon before he became supercharged a.k.a an electrician. Just by looking at his overall greasy demeanor. This could indicate that they're going for the classic origin as opposed to the Ultimate.
Lindsey35 - 4/21/2013, 9:43 AM
I like it. He looks crazy lol. I think Foxx will deliver.
AlexRival - 4/21/2013, 9:44 AM
I don't care what y'all be saying, I like it
KelvTwelve - 4/21/2013, 9:44 AM
I'm actually focusing on the Spidey mask in the background, doesn't anybody think it looks terrible?
xfan320 - 4/21/2013, 9:45 AM
Dude, people need to just stop complaining...

This is one of the first villains we've gotten that ISN'T some crazy college professor or random thug...

I think it will be a great way to take a spider man villain..giving TASM/electro a little bit of "scorned lover" typ of thing..

Mark the words now, children:


JAMIE FOXX WILL DELIVER THE GOODS!!!
bazinga85 - 4/21/2013, 9:46 AM
He looks like a certified rapist.
NeoBaggins - 4/21/2013, 9:46 AM
This is so [frick]ing stupid. You hire Foxx because the role isn't race-specific. Then you try to make him look like the nerd version of another race. A [frick]ed up Jheri Curl comb-over? He doesn't look like a real person. It looks like a Parody. Sure he'll have fun with that. Foxx is a comedian first so, hey.
Lindsey35 - 4/21/2013, 9:48 AM
Dude looks sick! I know the haircut looks stupid but HE LOOKS EVIL.
Fabius - 4/21/2013, 9:48 AM
Interesting picture, Foxx looks like crazy psycho french teacher from high school in NY...Funny. And cool picture wall spidey. So must be the final suit and mask !
storyteller - 4/21/2013, 9:49 AM
Different look only if you have never watched Ali, The Jaime Foxxx show, and In Living Color.
Lindsey35 - 4/21/2013, 9:49 AM
Let's give it a chance guys. Jamie Foxx here is a great actor.
Swiftsword777 - 4/21/2013, 9:49 AM
@jlabatman took the words right out of my mouth
Lindsey35 - 4/21/2013, 9:52 AM
You guys think that poster is an actual pic of the suit? I honestly thought it was a cartoon or something.
AstroZombie - 4/21/2013, 9:54 AM

Dayum! he is foine!
Spideyguy94 - 4/21/2013, 9:54 AM
He looks stupid but I'm not going to let that effect my expectations going in.
StrangerX - 4/21/2013, 9:55 AM
I like that idea. This reminds me of The Riddler in Batman Forever.
ComicFan1134 - 4/21/2013, 9:55 AM
Where Tha Hell Is Griff, He Needs To See This!!!
arsonjack - 4/21/2013, 9:55 AM
