Jamie Foxx Speaks On Electro’s “Grounded” Look for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Sequel

Revealing that the Electro costume in the forthcoming Amazing Spider-Man movie won't be green and yellow, like the supervillain's comic book counterpart, check out what actor Jamie Foxx had to say!

BlackFilm is the latest to catch up with two-time Oscar-nominated actor Jamie Foxx, amid hype for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, to discuss his supervillain role in Marc Webb's follow-up to The Amazing Spider-Man. Now dishing on Electro's costume in the 2014 sequel, Foxx said:

“It won’t be green and yellow. It will be a different color. They (the producers) want something for the future. They want to have it more grounded and not as comic bookie, so it won’t be green and yellow. They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happen. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff.”

“In the script, this villain is the first time it’s be written well. Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb both commented on how great the script is, so it should be an exciting time.”


The next installment of The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx and Shailene Woodley. The screenplay is by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt. The film will be directed by Marc Webb and produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. The untitled new film in the Spider-Man saga is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014. Production will begin in early 2013 in New York.
