UPDATED: Electrified! Get your first look at Jamie Foxx's costumed Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2!

07.10.2013

UPDATE: Added another exclusive image from EW, featuring Andrew Garfield suiting up in his messy room. Scan below to check it out!

Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the cover for thier Comic Con issue, featuring none other than your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man facing off with his newest movie villain, Electro, as portrayed by Jamie Foxx. So far, we've seen some snippets of Foxx on the set and in make-up, but this is the first time we've seen him in an actual costume. Granted, it's still nothing like the original green and yellow get up (nor the purple "ultimate" version), but it's still...something, right?

Take a gander:

There's something very intriguing about the ambition of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. At first, it feels like they're just tossing in every villain, plot, and convention to spruce up the film in the hopes for mass appeal, but then you have to think that certainly these people have seen BATMAN AND ROBIN and know that more is not better. In fact, it seems like they very well may have a grand scheme up their sleeve, with the "delaying" of Mary Jane's appearance and the announcement of two more sequels over the next five years. Time will tell, but now that the snoozer of the origin reboot is in the can, I'm intrigued to see Spidey get down to business and so, apparently, is director Marc Webb, who says:

“People aren’t scared. With the first one I felt it was important to retell that origin story. But that was kind of brutal because people were so familiar with it. Now that the origin story is done? We’re off to the races. It’s incredibly liberating.”

Here's the synopsis:

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, starring everybody, including Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper, Colm Feore, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Sarah Gadon, Denis Leary, and B.J. Novak, swings into action on May 2, 2014.

Is it me or does Spider-man really have that scrawny Ultimate Spiderman look? I don't actually mind it. Electro, could be interesting.

Yeah that's what I remember them saying they were going for when the rebooted the franchise. They wanted to make it a tad more darker but stay true to Spidey's comedic commentary while injecting the Ultimate look and feel to the character and his world.

Looks cool. Still don't think this will match the quality of Spider-man 2, one of the best comic book films of all time.

Also, you should probably take Woodley's name off the cast list. And Leary, based on his outcome in the first movie.

Yeah, if you like Dawson's Creek featuring Doc Ock as Curt Conners. Oh, and plenty of Kirsten Dunst being kidnapped, again.

little off topic, but...

why do superheroes/villains always have such flair for costumes? I mean if I was a villain, pissed off at the world, and just ready to kill and destroy things I would not be sewing little lightning bolts onto my sleeves.And if I was a highschooler who overnight had super powers I would not be staying up late at night making sure the web pattern on my newly purchased spandex jumpsuit looked just right. Maybe I'm just lazy but my costume would suck.

That was actually my first thought when I saw those lightning bolts as well :)

Other than that it looks pretty cool. Of course it's a Spider-Man movie, so you have to have a reasonable level of suspension of disbelief...

I'm willing to give it a shot

I liked the first one so I'm on board with this one. I liked Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone's take on the characters, Jamie Foxx is a great actor and Dane DeHaan will blow James Franco out of the water.

Dane DeHaan would probably blow Franco but there no chance he'll give a better performance.

Lightning Bolt Man!

Thank God Electro has a lightning bolt on his costume, otherwise I'd think Spidey is fighting one of the engineers from Prometheus

The makeup doesn't looks better than I thought, but I'm pretty fucking tired of every superhero/villain costume designer falling back on the whole strappy, leather, dark, recon gear suit. It's getting old.

They make Pre-Electro Foxx look so geeky that he might cosplay it up a little more with a flashy comicbooky costume, something for Spidey to make fun of.

I dig it! I like the look they're going for with Electro. When it comes to superhero movies that costumes and characters do not need to look exactly like the comic books version, especially when you develop a world on screen that would make the comic book costume look silly. To be honest, whether this was Raimi's Spiderman or Webb's Spiderman, I just can't see the green and yellow suit working for Electro on screen, it just seems too silly and cartoonish.

That looks great. And his burned off ear is gross.
Guess the name of the movie is officially "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", which is kind of lazy. Ah well, not a big deal.

There will always be complaints!

I actually really like how he looks. It's a departure from the campy yellow and green suit and definitely seems to lineup with the darker take we got in the first. Now, all we have left is Rhino and GG.

I hope...

it won't be a snoozefest like that freakin last one. Granted the last one was way better then spider man 3. so thats saying something. I just hope for more action, a really solid story, and maybe they'll kill off gwen.

Well...

It's never been about race, appearance or costume when it comes to Superhero movies. I'm quite a fan of Michael Clarke Duncan (RIP) in Dardevil. All comes down to performance and story, coz 99/100, the action delivers.

That being said, Electro's suit gives me X-Men: First Class vibes. It's not to villainous (probably indicates that Electro will have a change of heart, and fight alongside Spidey), but it could be alright.
Notice how whenever there are multiple key villians in a comic book

2 things come to my mind (nitpicking)

1- Foxx has a "Bubba Blue" lower lip

2- Amazes me that through Foxx's transformation his teeth remain pearly white.

So he's going to look like one of those balls you touch to make your hair stand up. Not the direction I would go but it looks decent enough.

Granted he doesn't have the yellow and green suit which I would have loved to have seen on the big screen (just embrace the comic already!), but I do think he looks awesome here as well.

The only thing that gives me hope about this one is that they won't have to retell anything this time around like they did in the first film and they can just get right to the action.

cause as Michael Bay has proven, story means dick. Action is everything.

What's the point of seeing people fight each other if you don't give a damn about either one?

When I mean get right to the action, I mean action, but also giving us a brand new story with no retelling of any kind.

so you wouldn't want to see them bring in some old characters (example, Harry Osbourne, Eddie Brock) and see them possibly do their characters justice in this new series? Sure it'd be retelling some stuff, but I'm fine with that, the origins are out of the way (which I'll give ya is tedious and annoying), but everything after that is all gravy in terms of bringing back potential future villains.

Obviously use the same character again, but bot waste any time retelling their origins. I think you and I are really over thinking this.

Well, that's actually not too bad. I like that he has a physical costume and isn't "wearing" CGI the way the Green Lantern Corp. members were.
