Jamie Foxx Talks About Electro

Jamie Foxx has already been confirmed as the main villain for the upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man, playing the electrically-charged villain, Electro. He has recently talked to MTV and has provided a few choice bits of info about the his role:

“You’ll see his whole life is just no one is talking to him,” says Foxx of the character’s backstory. “People have stolen his ideas at the company, he’s a nobody. And at a certain point Spider-Man bumps into him and says, ‘You’re my guy, you’re my ears and eyes on the street,’ and he says his name, ‘Max’, and no one’s ever said Max Dillon’s name, and he goes ‘Wow.’

“And so when Spider-Man leaves he sort of thinks that somehow, ‘I am Spider-Man’s partner,’ and so he starts cutting out his face and pasting it on his board at home. When everything goes bad, his mom doesn’t remember his birthday, I mean all these crazy things happen until finally he has something tragic happen, and then when it turns on he lights it up.”

Foxx also revealed that the costume won’t be as cheesy as the comic book version’s green and yellow spandex with a huge star on the face:

“Marc Webb and all those guys that are doing it are smart,” he explains. “They know that it has to make sense in 2013. They want to have it more grounded and not as comic book-y, so it won’t be green and yellow. They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that. The suit is really slick, it’s actually black, but it’s the new age.”
