We caught our first glimpse of Jamie Foxx in his Electro getup last week from on set of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2".You can catch the photos here if you missed them. We now get our first glimpse of Foxx as Max Dillion, before his inevitable transformation into the villain Electro. We also get our first look at Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn.
Webb and team have definitely evolved the look of these characters from the comics, as well as from the Sam Raimi editions. So far, so good, on everything we've seen to date.
Foxx is a great actor and we've seen him already explore some darker and tougher sides, as seen in "Django Unchained" and "Horrible Bosses", as the tough yet hilarious Dean "Motherfu*ker" Jones. I have no doubt that he will do a great job at portraying Max Dillon/Electro and give Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) a run for his money.
DeHaan is no doubt one of the most talented rising young stars to emerge in years. He has shown immense diversity and depth in such films as "Chronicle", where he perfectly showed the character development of good to evil. He also showcased a softer and more vulnerable side in "Lawless". I love James Franco as much as the next, but I think DeHaan is going to bring an even greater level of depth to the very complex character of Harry.
I also appreciate that it's believable that DeHaan's father could really be Chris Cooper, who will be portraying Norman Osborn in the film. Way to pay attention to details, Webb and team.
