Marc Webb And Andrew Garfield On THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Main Villain Electro
Director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield teases what unfolds in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. "Oscorp is the evil empire and will always be a major player in these films," says Webb.
Talking about Electro (Jamie Foxx) Marc Webb stated, "We wanted some theatricality for this villain. What makes him interesting is the really ironic evolution of the character. He starts off as Spider-Man's biggest fan and ends up being Spider-Man's biggest foe."
Webb went on to talk more about Electro, specifically how designers created his glowing, electrified look. "We shot his exterior and then created a glowing light source that is buried deep within his core that exudes and generates electric light. If you look at a cloud when a thunderstorm is coming and the lightning is within that cloud, we use that as a natural inspiration for the character."
And what does Electro bring to the table in terms of combat and conflict with Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield)? "Electro is a god in terms of the power that he wields", said the Peter Parker actor. Garfield added, "To be faced with that creates a whole host of problems, obstacles and drama. That's great to have between those two people."
Webb briefly teased a new state of mind for Spider-Man in the sequel. "That's going to be a side of him you'll want to relish," said Webb on the fun Spider-Man has this time around. He continued, "This time, there's a jollity we've really embraced." Nice to hear as the The Amazing Spider-Man was decidedly dark and dare I say a tad bit emo. It helps that this time around, it looks as if the bulk of Spider-Man's adventures will be taking place in daylight rather than at night.
And on Oscorp, Webb simply stated, "Oscorp is the evil empire and will always be a major player in these films."
