"Transforming Jamie Foxx" - THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 VFX Breakdown

The website, Wired.com, was provided with an Amazing Spider-Man 2 visual effects breakdown video detailing Jamie Foxx's transformation into Electro. Check it out.

"In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Jamie Foxx stars as Electro, the glowing antagonist to Andrew Garfield's Spidey. In this video, learn how Sony Pictures Imageworks used a combination of makeup and CGI to turn the Academy Award winner into a blue, electrically-charged villain--with inspiration from lightning, neurological networks, and nebulas." - WIRED
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be directed by Marc Webb from a script written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt. The film will star Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Sally Field as Aunt May, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Jamie Foxx is Electro and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel will swing into theaters May 2, 2014.

It's hard work transforming an Oscar winner into sh*t.

He could've been better. Never thought I'd say Jamie play such a generic character.

I re-post one of my earlier comments:

I truly hate the Ultimate universe. I honestly don't think it counts as source material. It is the worst [frick]ing garbage Marvel has ever put out. It is where they stick all of the new writers/artists and dumb ideas, because they don't want to ruin the 616.

So, any part of a Marvel movie that takes inspiration from it (and the majority of this film does) is shit and I don't consider it to be following source material. This includes MCU films, which draw heavily from the Ultimate universe.

I am not saying films that have Ultimate inspired things are automatically terrible. I love plenty of Marvel films that have bits and pieces of the Ultimate universe in them. I would simply prefer Marvel films to only use the 616 universe as inspiration.

I know there are a lot of things in the 616 that are hard to translate to film, but I think if you don't want to put in the effort of translating it to film then you shouldn't be making the movie.
