Updated: Electro Unchained! Get a good look at Jamie Foxx as the villain of The Amazing Spider-Man 2!

Apr. 16, 2013by: Paul Shirey

UPDATED: More new pics below!

Well now. That's...interesting. Today, we have our first look at Jamie Foxx as Electro, one of the primary villains of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Now, if you grew up reading the comics or even just watching the old cartoon, you'd likely remember Electro as wearing a green and yellow suit with an "electric" hood. It's kind of been his signature outfit for, oh, decades. Then, Marvel started their "Ultimate" line of comics, which allowed for quite a bit of reinvention of all the major players in the Marvel universe. The Ultimate version of Electro was significantly different than the 616 version, featuring a bald head and some variation of a hood/cloak. And of course, there's the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, which sees Electro as a blueish, bald-headed character, a stark difference from the original and the most consistent with what Foxx is rocking on the set.

Foxx has remained very excited about the role, which will likely show onscreen. As an actor, Foxx can certainly bring the intensity and a villain role will be a nice change of pace, but thus far I'm getting more of an Abe Sapien vibe than an electricity-wielding baddie. Granted, these are set pics and could easily be taken out of context without fully rendered effects, but it's still a good base for where they're going. Could it be cool on the big screen? Sure. Could it be a disaster? Yup, that too. I'm open to seeing what the sequel brings, as I've kind of checked out after the lackluster first entry. I've got nothing to lose at this point.

Get electrified:

So, there you have it. I'm looking forward to seeing what concoction they come up with for Paul Giamatti's Rhino as they've certainly been consistent with coming up with some odd choices for the villains thus far. It's getting a little tiring watching these productions jump straight to Marvel's Ultimate line to find a more "realistic" costume for their characters, though. I feel that Joss Whedon struck a nice balance for The Avengers (Hawkeye aside) and wish more comic adaptations would follow that model (Yes, I'm looking at you, X-MEN franchise).

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Dane DeHaan, Sally Field, Martin Sheen, Chris Cooper, Colm Feore, B.J. Novak, and Felicity Jones swings into theaters on May 2, 2014.

UPDATE: New pics are surfacing showing Foxx's Electro "lit up" with his hood, giving a very clear indicator that they're following the Ultimate Spider-Man line for this incarnation. Once the full VFX are put in this could be cool and there's always the potential that this is just the first evolution of the character before settling into some kind of costume. What do you think? Do the lights make a difference? Or is this way too Mr. Freeze/Avatar/Abe Sapien for you?

Extra Tidbit: What do you say? Could this be cool?

WTF? Why is he wearing that horrible makeup from Batman & Robin?

And the biggest WTF comes from the fact that they made Electro look like some deformed mutant. Electro looks human, did they change it just to match that shitty cartoon? Electro should have been one of the easiest characters to get right. There is no point in painting him up in that ridiculously obvious blue makeup. This is honestly the EXACT same makeup they used on Mr. Freeze in Batman & Robin.

After looking it up, Ultimate Electro looks like Dr. Manhattan. This Electro looks like Mr. Freeze. Still, I've never been of a fan of the Ultimates anyways. Such a boneheaded way to be "hip".

It's like Mr. Freeze and Emperor Palpatine had a love child. Freeze contributed the blue skin, and Palpatine contributed the black hood and blue [link] "And now young Parker, you will die."

I actually wanted the costume. This looks like crap, until proven otherwise by the final product. Marc Webb was great and all, but picking the Lizard for the first film was a terrible choice.

He looks fine for Ultimate Electro. I am glad they are going campy. It gives hope that this won't be a giant douche bag emo fest like the first one was.

LED ights in hoodie

Those look like LED lights lining the hoodie. My thought here is that those will cast a glow that will then be enhanced with CGI to give a lighted effect. The blue skin may just be a base color to lay the effects over. He will still look blue mind you but it will be less Smurf and more spark on screen. Just a theory. I don't mind the changes. I realize that they are far from the comics and Raimi's version but Webb said from the beginning he want to differentiate his series from the previous. It

Haters Gonna Hate

I am a huge fan of the Spider-Man character. And while I wasn't overjoyed with The Amazing Spider-Man, I gave it a chance. Since when are we now judging movies based on the pre-FX spy shots? If you don't like Spider-Man, fine, you have a right not to like the films or the character. But I have a the same right to like it. And I'm not going to crap all over a film based on behind-the-scenes shots.

Call me crazy but I'm digging this. I'm imaging a light CG glow like Tron. The nighttime battle scenes will look pretty dope. I'd also love to hear the hum of an electric current in Imax.

If we've learnt anything over the past few years...

... about set pictures, it's that it says nothing about the look of the make-up/costume until the finished product is on film.

Yeeeesh

Not so sure. Could go either way. Those LED lights are likely just for the effect and will be taken out in post. I don't think he will be walking around in a light up hoodie. I liked the first film more than most on this board seem to-- though the villain wasn't great-- and am willing to give the second some leeway. But I really didn't expect Foxx to look like this. That said, who knows what the reason for this is or how it fits into the story?

Shocker...

Fanboys Everywhere, Enraged! the headline reads. Well, not knowing who Electro is or being much of a comics guy (at all), I really dig where this is headed. I didn't see Amazing Spidey until it hit Blu-Ray and I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't care much for the look of the Lizard, but overall, I thought it was entertaining. I didn't like the way the Lizard looked in early concept shit that was leaked on that film either.
That is not the case here. I think that Electro looks cool as shit

Did people not read Ultimate Peter story up to the end? if not, *SPOILER*

So people are saying the stupidest things about Foxx as Electro. Racist. Wrong. BLUE?! If people who read all the way through the Ultimate Spider-Man, Peter Parker story you would recognize this guy! Hell Aunt May unloads a revolver into his chest on her front lawn! I am guessing they go with OSCORP, bio-engineering him, with the lines on him being scarring. and I am sure they will go all "Pandora" with him and light him up like a Christmas tree, just like he ended up evolving in the comics.

Glowing veins and eyes and what not. I am okay with all this. A guy like Foxx who is excited about the role is going to make him something more than a walking lightning bolt. As for him not being "616", that doesn't matter! Let them pick and choose if it leads to a better film.

Sorry, but the Ultimates does not exist in the dojo. They are terrible remakes, and are certainly not up to par with the real deal. As said before, Spiderman is popular because of Stan Lee. People love Spiderman because of his REAL comics, and not the hippster 'Ultimate' garbage bullshit.

Ultimates = Twilight equivalent of comics.

Soooooo glad he's not wearing a stupid green & yellow suit with giant yellow rubber lightning bolts on his face.. Once the SFX are done I think it's going to look badass. Looks like they're thinking along the lines of Dr Manhattan.

I think the look is great and appears unfinished. I can imagine in the final film with special effects it will appear as if he was bolts running through his face. Definitely something we haven't seen before. I know people hated the first film (I loved it) but they shouldn't be too critical towards this when it is just in its early stages. Wait for the final product or at least a trailer. The original costume with the yellow bolt mask would have been too goofy for a film.

Looks great. Loved the first one, can't be more excited. I always thought Electro was a great power-set attached to a dumb-ass character. Dillon is just too stupid of a character to be a proper Spider-Man villain, so I'm hoping they make him a little more dangerous.

Looks like it has definite potential once it goes through post--could be really cool. Problem is it could easily go the other way and be terrible. Might as well stay optimistic for now, though.

I wonder if Jamie Foxx feels as stupid as he looks?

With the $$$ he's getting for doing this role, I'm sure he can ignore it.

I'm being DEAD Honest....Before I read the headline I thought it was a set pick of Avatar 2...At first glance, I'm not digging this.

Well...

This really is just a glimpse right? Half of these photos are tabloid photos right? Maybe they'll throw in a little CG to top it off? Especially in the 2nd last picture, with all the LED lights goin on in his hood. Looks pretty solid for a grounded Electro. I prefer this over seeing Jamie Foxx with a star shaped yellow symbol on his head. I'm sure this isn't his final look as Electro anyways?

Yes Spider-Man comics are a bit more adult oriented sometimes, but the cartoons, and the movies have always been aimed at kids. The toys are marketed to kids, the video games as well. To make an adult oriented Spider-Man film would be missing a huge already built in demographic. Would you invest $100 Million dollars in Spider-Man and say "let's take the risky route, and see if Dredd 3D was just a fluke", or would you put all your money into the fact that children will make their parents buy

No, not at all. If they aim for kids, then go ahead. Just count me - an adult - out

Because Joss didn't follow the Ultimate line up like everyone else...

Are you talking about Captain America?? Because everyone else looked pretty non ridiculous because they weren't decked out in tight spandex. Kinda wish they went with the Ultimate version of Captain America for the Avengers. Good to know they're changing the costume for the Winter Soldier though. I say keep picking characters from the Ultimate line because it is the least ridiculous looking and the most believable even if it is just a movie.

Although I like a somewhat subdued version of their costumes, I would stick with the originals as close as possible. The originals are what GOT you to the point of being able to make a movie to begin with...not the "ultimate" versions. The X-Men franchise should take note here.

As for "believability", we are talking about movies based on comic books. You're always going to have the problem of making your audience believe what's going on. It's been done several times before.

Lame

They make a move to cast an African American in the role and then they cover him in a blue White Chicks/Mr. Freeze makeup? How badass would it have been if we saw just a sinister Jamie Foxx shooting electricity everywhere and fucking shit up Infamous-style!? I wanted to like the last Spiderman, but the character design for the Lizard was SHIT. This one looks like it's following suit.

Abe sapien?

So clearly the the main visual similarity between Jamie foxx's electro and Abe sapien are the big lips.
Seriously though, this is a blockbuster movie. The villain has to be visually interesting, or so the production of these films think. I finally saw Oz this pAst weekend and it made me want to see spidey 4 so bad.

I dig this movie series. Its far superior than the Sam Raimi films. I like the costume. I hope if they get around to making a Green Goblin its more like Spider-man's and less Mighty Morphin Power Ranger.

Agreed. I thought Spider-Man 2 was really good, but other than that they were lackluster. This new series actually feels like a Spider-Man series, starring Peter Parker. People complain about the new series being emo, which is hilarious considering how many times Toby MacGuire cried like a big stupid baby on camera in the first three.

Pete in the new films isn't emo - he's angry. If the haters read a single Spider-Man comic, they'd know that Spider-Man is an angry guy who hides it with his

No one rages like Spidey, and they captured that well in the new flicks. Plus the new series isn't so goddamn campy. Every time Sam Raimi does a zoom-in close up on a screaming woman, an angel's wings explode.

I like that you start by bashing the haters, then immediately transform into a hater like the Wolf Man from Monster Squad.

I think this site is anything BUT critical. Anything any fanboy approved Actor/Director does is praised largely without question i.e. Kevin Smith. Look at the goddamn Movie Jail segment. You have to be Ernest P. Worrell before they would convict you, and that would only be a maybe. But, whatever, it's a Canadian website. Canadians are nicer people than we Americans.

Lame look!

I love the cast but I think Electro looks bad just like the Lizard did. I like the Amazing Spiderman it was a good movie but an ok Spiderman movie. The Lizard and Electro are great villains(don't understand some hate on Electro on here) and Marc Webb in my opinion sucked bringing the Lizard to life and looks like the same here for Electro. I understand they are doing Ulimate universe here(I perfer the old school) but it just doesn't feel like a true Spiderman movie. By the way Andrew Garfield
