First Look At Jamie Foxx As The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Villain Electro!


Last night in Times Square “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” was being filmed and Jamie Foxx was spotted wearing a full face of make Max Dilion aka Electro!

Electro (Maxwell “Max” Dillon) is an enemy of Spider-Man who gained the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning while working on a power line.

Now the character is not in the typical yellow and green outfit but instead this Electro is all Blue…looking like palpatine. But it looks like the filmmakers are going with the Ultimate Electro look.

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 film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.

Check out the set photos below and let us know what you think of the new looking Electro…

    Figured just as much.

  • DJ Aloriv

    Ok ok…I’m ok with this look as long as they’re using existing source material as a base.

    Reminds me of Arnie’s Mr. Freeze.

    with a cg glow and some sparks he will look good, I hope he doesnt get a suit and is more like the picture you have from US:TAS at the bottom I like that electro

  • Chinedu Opara

    I am skeptical but hopeful. I could never imagine Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon… I feel his face isn’t lean enough, and his lips too thick (cuz he’s a brother). But I guess it depends on the writing and directing… I am hoping to be surprised.

  • TheFran

    Lets hope it’s not Arnie’s Mr.Freeze… looking forward to it!

  • Tim Terrell

    Max Dillon in the comics was white and Jamie Foxx is black. Of course he will have different features than you imagined. So what. Dillon was one of the first super villain characters I remember reading in Spidey comics in the 70s and one of my favorites because of The Amazing Spider Man #187 (with Cap vs. Spidey!) Dillon is a generic enough character that it is cool by me that his race is changed.

  • Daxin Barker

    Looks like Satan from the film ‘The Bible”. As Satan was purposefully made into an image of President Obama at his worste, the’ Racial Subliminal Efforts’ and the ever-evoked pursuit of ‘White Superiority” in the United States is an ugly mark of what is really going on between America and its Citizens. No other film is more confirmative of this than “The Great Gatsby”. White Americans portraying a Zenith status on film is prominent throughout the 2000s; However, the Coolness and Hip-Nature of African Americans, are stolen as Jay-Z is ‘allowed’ to contribute to its Soundtrack.

  • Chris Groves

    My first reaction was “Dang, that looks pretty awful.”

  • GravitysSilhouette

    I know! It’s great, isn’t it!?! Can’t wait to see The Great Gatsby and can’t wait to not see Jamie Foxx as Electro. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 can’t not come soon enough!

  • Maxwell

    I actually think it looks good.

  • Dee9922

    The ultimate electro was based of a black guy anyway so what ever, not like he is important

  • dee9922

    you know t hey aren’t they, they never do haha. They are taking some liberties

  • dee9922

    He looks like ultimate electro, what more do you want, he’s a blue glowing guy with no cgi or lighting applied to him lol…..he is wandering around set.

  • STATUS18

    looks like Powder (1995)

  • jooneBug13

    phunney people, phunney comments! i guess everybody 4gotte that Jamie Foxx iz an Oscar winner 4 the film, Ray. i sure az hell didnt 4gette that fact. he will do just phyne az the villain, Electro. Brothas like Jamie Foxx, or Will Smith have alot of roles 2 choose from. just lyke an exceptional european descendant or caucasian american. log it, STAT!!!

  • FlamingTROLLZ

    Jeff Goldblum, where are you? With your awesome stutter talking. Like a Grandpa Shia.

  • shogun768

    Looks great, can’t wait to see the CG electrical effects.

  • Chris Groves

    It’s just not a good design in my opinion.

    50/50 on this one…but will give it a chance.

  • dee9922

    meh that’s fair. So do you prefer the yellow and green or what?

  • DaDiddles

    So now people can stop complaining about the character being a black guy. THE CHARACTER IS A BLUE GUY!

  • CellReborn

    “a lot” is two words.

  • Alan Rodriguez

    Yes because that’s the only thing grammatically incorrect with that

  • Chris Groves

    I suppose. I mean, I grew up on the 90s Spider-Man cartoon, so that aesthetic is kind of what I’m used too…but obviously the bright yellow and green ‘costume’ isn’t really what you want in a live action film…it’s not necessarily a design complaint…although the design is a little funky…but the makeup/prosthetic effect itself just seems…not good. Of course lighting and CGI and etc could make it better…but my initial reaction is what it is.

  • Luis Heffer


  • DaDiddles

    Gatsby is made by an Australian though.

  • James Carter

    It’s Blue-Ray!
    High-Five to anyone who gets that.

  • Anirudh Bahadur

    Me tooo! :D :D

  • Jet Li

    Electro’s looking really cool!

  • Scott Gallagher

    Changing the letters ‘z’ and ‘s’ around makes you sound like a whigger. Please stop!

  • Scott Gallagher

    Uh, sorry to bug you Mr. Electro, but you got a little something on your sweater…

  • Sands

    The guy that played Satan was not made to look like Obama. That’s his real face. Are you saying all black people look alike? So racist. As for the rest of your word-soup, you sound like one of those guys that spent their time in lock up trying to memorize the dictionary before seeing the judge and regurgitating it all.

  • SilentXero

    Exactly what I was thinking. Still looks interesting though.

  • Yvonne

    When The Amazing Spider-Man first came out, I refused to see it because I was content with the first three movies. After looking at Jamie Foxx painted up like this, I’m starting to think I’ve been wrong this whole time. I work at DISH with a guy who explained to me the difference between Spiderman comics and The Amazing Spider-Man, and he’s convinced me to give it a chance. I added it to my Blockbuster @Home queue that I have through DISH so I’ll get to see what I’ve been missing this whole time. They don’t have due dates or late fees, so I can hold onto it for a while if I choose, or until I’m ready to see the sequel – lol!

  • WORSEKarma

    Sadly, I will not be seeing the “Spider Man” sequel, now. Oh, well.

  • Joss ‘Scruffy McDreads’ Dent

    Blueface. Offensive to smurfs and na’vi everywhere.

    That wasn’t his race face, he was a light skinned guy. They had to make him up to look like that.

    Mix between Dr. Manhattan and Mr. Freeze…chill out haters -_-

    fine/phyne -_-’

  • Jonathan Hagenbuch

    They’re just having a fun time ruining the Spider-Man movies, aren’t they? This isn’t avatar or some shit. You can make him look different than the comics, but that’s just a terrible, ugly look. Gotta be someway to incorporate at least a tiny bit of his original look. And are the sparkly things inside his hoodie really necessary??

  • BRK275

    It depends on the gas electricity or lightning is passing through, in our atmosphere it’s more common to see a whitish blue color, if theres dust or helium present it can be a yellow-reddish-tinge, in the ultimate spider-man comics hes yellow but making him blue in the movie is a little more realistic

  • kins

    He is more like from the Ultimate animated series

    Not the Ultimate comics

  • Daniel Gigg

    to all of you bashing jaimie foxx’s electro look clearly haven’t read the ultimate spider-man comics coz thats what he looks to be based off of

  • JazzFraz

    Because making him bright yellow just wouldn’t be pleasing to the eyes and the CGI would look horrible. Remember Clash of the Titans? Those bright CGI effects on the gods armor annoyed A LOT of people. Gave me a headache in the theater,

  • JazzFraz

    He is blue(in the tv cartoons as well) because the CGI will look better. Having him bright yellow would not be pleasing. Look at Clash of the titans and their bright CGI armor.

    Plus I’m sure it will look better with CGI applied. This is how Electro looks on tv.

  • Jonathan Hagenbuch

    I guess you’re right. I think he was yellow in the 90s cartoon though, but yeah the new ones he’s blue. They should have the lightning bolt scars on his head like they do in the comics now. I think people would think that’s cooler than his original mask, or in the current case where it looks like no mask.

  • wikkiwikki

    I am all for Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon…. So long as his blue paint job doesn’t come off in the screen. I believe characters shouldn’t be changed to fit someones agenda. Positions held by people is different. Example, We have a black president. That is awesome!!! Example, Let’s Cast Will Smith as Superman, in Superman Returns. Wha wha WHAT THE FUCK!!!!! Fortunately Will Smith has the common sense to turn down such a role. Can you imagine Superman magically being a black guy after all the amazing comics and history and movies of him as Superman?

    Shaft is one of my favorite older movies. But can you imagine Shaft as a white guy? FUCK NO!!!! Or maybe Samuel Jackson as a white guy? “I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!” It just doesn’t have the same ring to it when a white guy says it.

    Then again….. Michael Jackson… Look what you’ve done.

  • wikkiwikki

    Oh Boy! Hide your kids hide yo wives hide yo husbands, cause Daxin be Barkering up the racial tree.

    Seriously dude? You think this is still some sort of “White America?” It’s racial asshole fucks like yourself that won’t drop it. You probably are under 30, live with your parent’s, and never suffered real racial abuse. In fact, most white people aren’t even aware of what racism is, that is until some some privileged racist (who thinks they are a product of racism from the receiving end,) throws it in the naive child’s face. I at 8 or 9 years old, having been raised proper and oblivious to racism, was accused by neighbors (who were thief’s and got arrested later,) for calling them the “N” word. Needless to say that was the first time I ever remember hearing the word and being introduced to racist assholes like yourself.

    So let’s take the time to dissect what you are saying.

    “Looks like Satan from the film ‘The Bible”. As Satan was purposefully made into an image of President Obama at his worste”

    “Worste,” is that even a word? I know my spell check would differ with yours’. I gotta ask you though…. Are you serious? Obama is the president. What fucking more do you want? Every God Damn President is mocked ridiculed and purposefully made to look like Satan and Jesus (depending on the POLITICAL stance of involved people.) They are always made fun of as it will help you get over the horrible decisions the presidents make.

    “the’ Racial Subliminal Efforts’ and the ever-evoked pursuit of ‘White
    Superiority” in the United States is an ugly mark of what is really
    going on between America and its Citizens.”

    Where the fuck do you live? Not down here in the south where we white folk are quickly becoming the minority. In Texas, sure you got your rock stars, college kids, religious freaks, porn stars, and politicians. But you also have your blacks whites reds and yellows all living harmoniously. Here in Houston, TX race is becoming a thing of the past. I mean sure there is always going to be someone of a different color then you that can seemingly get any and everything they want. As well as achieve those things in less time then you. Does it matter? People are people and as long as you have Black Panthers and NAACP you are only going to go out in to the world with that low level mentality of how shits not fair. THERE IS NO MARK of the white man’s supremacy. At least there hasn’t been in my 30 year life time. Sure you got the KKK or The Klan, but do you really give or pay them any attention. I sure hope not cause then you are giving in. If you provoke they will defend. If you walk away, who is getting hurt then? Don’t be the instigator.

    “No other film is more confirmative of this than “The Great Gatsby”.”

    I, some how feel you are taking your text from say WorldStarHipHop. Oh and REALLY? REALLY???? “confirmative?” Do you even look at your monitor as you type. So you can see the errors you have made? I think you might just be the one finger each hand keyboardist.
    BTW you really really really should watch The Great Gatsby (the original not the new one.)

    “White Americans portraying a Zenith status on film is prominent
    throughout the 2000s; However, the Coolness and Hip-Nature of African
    Americans, are stolen as Jay-Z is ‘allowed’ to contribute to its

    So your jealous? You are jealous that a hard working black man would lend his musical prowess to dominate films of a modern era? It’s not the white man’s fault that people like Jay-Z who busted his ass to learn and become a more creative artist through the power of trial and error. He had mentors and had help along the way but what made it happen was his undying will to become something better then a street rat getting shot at over some crack cocaine. He had hard times but he overcame them by not looking at things in such a racial spiteful hateful way as all racists do. Sure the “Zenith” status you speak of may ring true to a delirious narcissistic idiot but then again do you really think the black community wants to put up another Tyler Perry movie up in theaters. BTW Tyler Perry isn’t making good for the black community with his racial albeit supposed to be funny stereotypes. I guess your mother never taught you that “First impression’s are always possible to be your last, so don’t fuck that up.” Present your self how you want to be represented and respected. Go HAM or Thug and well your not gonna make it to far.

    While it has been fun getting to think about how others think and interpret things, I find I have written too much already. I hope you can, if you choose to have any, raise your children without a hint of racism. Teach them to love all equally. So what, you got trailer park white trash as neighbors, scummy tequila drinking Tejano banging music til 4am Mexican neighbors, or dirty fucking thieving Russian mafia neighbors. They are all people and if you look them in the eyes and say just one thing make it, “How are you doing today, neighbor?” or ” You look like you could use a hand?” Those things are the things you should be doing if you find that racism is still a part of your life. Not go around making derogatory comments and fluff just to tiff somebody and get under their skin. That my friend is where your violent racial hate filled message came from. That my friend is what you must fix if you want to be happy in this modern world WE all live in.
