Electro-fying! Jamie Foxx is Pictured as the Amazing Spider-Man Villain for the First Time


Ever since Jamie Foxx was cast as Maxwell Dillon, better known to comic-book fans as Electro, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, fans have been slavering for a look at him in his villainous make up.
That wait is now over, as Foxx was spotted in Times Square on Monday wearing a full face of make up and creepy contact lens.
It was quite the distracting look, and gives us a sense that Electro will be a compelling villain. (Cinema, The Amazing Spider-Man 2)

That's a very unique look at Electro. Should be interesting to see how he's introduced and how they use him. The Makeup effects are pretty damn creepy looking though.

Jamie Foxx is a good actor and all but (1) Nobody is going to take him serious during the movie, (2) Electro is more of an insane/crazy villain, somebody like Cillian Murphy would be perfect for this role.
Crazay  +   958d ago
I could see Cillian Murphy rocking out that role only if he didn't already do Scarecrow because everyone would have been making noise about that.
KwietStorm  +   958d ago
People need to chill out with the not taking him serious thing. Jamie Fox has already played a number a serious roles, and you just said he's a good actor. The mark of a good actor is to make you forget who they are within the role, and bring the character to life. I don't think anyone sees the Fresh Prince of Bel Aire in any Will Smith role.

Something, something, he's the freakin' emperor, something, something, darkside...

Seriously, does anyone else not think this?
OSIRUSSS  +   959d ago
I always thought you could defeat electro by throwing a bucket of water on him?
Ryasha  +   959d ago
Going with the Ultimate look I see. Cool cool....the regular ol' green and yellow is too cartoonish/laughable when translated to the real world anyway.
LoneWolf019  +   958d ago
yea not alot of people know this look and are mad about it. Lol comic noobs.
aDDicteD  +   958d ago
finally they give us a look of him and his costume, I got to say it's quite unique and surprising. I was predicting that it will have a yellow and green costume design.
StarWarsFan  +   958d ago
The make-up looks awesome. But is this really his final costume? It looks more like a disguise of some sort.
Jamie Foxx? lmao. Looks like this "Amazing Spider-Man" will be even worse than the first. I at least gave the first one a chance but I'll be skipping this altogether. Jamie Foxx is a shit actor and does nothing but ruin movies.

Indeed. I hate Jami Fox as an actor and I don't think he's funny either.
Porcelain_Chicken  +   958d ago
You: "I hate Jami Fox"

Who's Jami Fox?

You: "I hate Jami Fox as an actor"

Well others don't, Jamie Foxx is a good actor who happens to be an Oscar winner.

You: " I don't think he's funny either."

Wtf does that have to do with Electro??? *facepalm*
LoneWolf019  +   958d ago
You can hate him all you want but he has his oscar to prove hes a top actor. Get over it.
wishingW3L  +   958d ago
Mr Freeze from Batman & Robin... This is not looking good!
360ICE  +   958d ago
If you can't tell the difference between this and Mr Freeze, you should seriously get an optician to take a look at your ice (ha!).
aDDicteD  +   958d ago
lol, funny comparison.
IK IR Y IP T  +   958d ago
garbage im tired of movies changing characters for the sake of trying to lure in a diff crowd oh well i stll havent seen the re-boot and from what im told i ain't missing nothing so i guess i will pass on this one as well
ps3_pwns  +   958d ago
oh how the spiderman movies have fallen to crap. still cant believe some people tryed to say the amazing spiderman was good. just because you like the 2 star actors doesnt make the movie good.
DeadManMcCarthy  +   958d ago
Meh, looks like crap, I really had high hopes that these reboots would be truer to the source material, buuuuuuuut no. Hollywood always has to trash and change things that needn't be changed.

I reckon the yellow and green costume would look awesome if they had adapted it into the movie.


Just replace the bright yellow with a bronze or silver helmet and the suit with a dark color.

That hoody he's wearing is so unoriginal and boring. Looks like they copied it from the Prototype games.

Looks like the only thing they got right in this movie was Spider-Mans costume.

It's just a first-look,, Jesus, don't get your panties in a bunch princess. Also it's just a hooded sweatshirt, nobody is Plagiarizing [Prototype].... *facepalm*
DeadManMcCarthy  +   958d ago
Lol you mad? First look is final look, that's how he'll look in the movie and he looks stupid. People like you are the reason why Hollywood keeps making trash movies, and sheeps like you eat it right up. Go on, keep praising crappy movies, lol.
KwietStorm  +   958d ago
First look is final look? Lol that's your argument? Have you never seen a super hero movie before? It didn't cross your mind once that this scene is him awakening with his new powers, before he has an official suit? You can even see him staggering in one of the shots.

Mad? No. Annoyed? Very. Go anywhere on the internet right now and you'll find thousands of people moaning & b*tching about stuff for no reason. Like they are owed something. Your first & second comment are among those thousands.

"First look is final look"

I can't stress enough how stupid that sounds, no logic went into that statement whatsoever. Read what KwietStorm that pretty much sums it up.

"that's how he'll look in the movie and he looks stupid"

Yes he'll look like that at some point in the film. Is that the way he'll look the entire movie? Of course not. Is that his official costume? No. If i remember correctly Jamie Foxx and Marc Webb mentioned they had Electro's movie costume ready a while back.

"That hoody he's wearing is so unoriginal and boring. Looks like they copied it from the Prototype games."

Not relevant to our current dispute, i just thought i'd bring it up again because it was funny the first time.
FamilyGuy  +   958d ago
You're trash, you've seen one costume and make a huge assumption that it's bad already, pathetic.

This looks like a costume for the moments right after he gets his powers. He's clearly trying to hide and look inconspicuous in the hoodie. His real costume will probably come later.

Even if it doesn't, one costume can't ruin an entire movie.
DeadManMcCarthy  +   958d ago
Oops, double comment.

I can tell this movie is going to fail tremendously. Oh, well we still have the rhino to look at.
Soldierone  +   958d ago
If you want to read a good Electro series go find Spectacular Spider-man 134-136, Sin-Eater series. Electro is portrayed really well, he even starts making fun of his own costume. I think an Electro like that would have been perfect for the movies. Could have him laugh at the costume, then walk away.

I've never been a fan of the Ultimate Universe Spider-Man at all. Hopefully it's just Electro thats inspired by that, otherwise why call the first movie Amazing?
Ryasha  +   958d ago
I believe I read somewhere that this reboot series is some combination of elements from the standard Amazing comics, Ultimate and "original" ideas.
MontyQ  +   958d ago
sweet a hooded smurf vs spiderman lol straight to dvd

I'm blue da ba dee da ba die

better, no?
LoneWolf019  +   958d ago
Rather sad that no one seems to know electro does look like this in some comics. In my opinion cant talk shit if you dont know your facts.
