Today we get our first glimpse of Jamie Foxx is his Electro getup, on the set of Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2". The costume has a much more dark and modernized feel to it, compared to the yellow and green suit as seen in the comics.
Electro is one of Spider-Man's greatest enemies. Hopefully Webb will show how Maxwell Dillon became Electro, as it's a very interesting backstory. Dillon was struck by lightning while working at an electric company, which caused a mutagenic change to occur within him, resulting in him being able to control mass amounts of energy.
On playing the character, Foxx said the following:
"I'm going to keep it close to the chest but I followed the Spider-Man comic books. And I would watch the television show growing up. It's a blessing. It's incredible. Especially for my little daughter, who is there for the make-up tests and everything. It's another testament to Quentin Tarantino because without Django, I wouldn't be doing Spider-Man.'"
