Earlier this month, Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx was confirmed to play the villainous Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 after weeks of speculation that he was circling the role. The actor recently revealed that his costume will not be the green and yellow version from the comic books, and that the producers want a more grounded look.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will not feature Electro's green and yellow costume
"It won't be green and yellow. It will be a different color. They (the producers) want something for the future. 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, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happen. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff. In the script, this villain is the first time it's been written really, really well. Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb both commented on how great the script is, so it should be an exciting time."
The script was written by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Jeff Pinkner. Production is slated to begin early next year in New York City.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes to theaters May 2nd, 2014 and stars Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Sally Field, Dane DeHaan, Andrew Garfield, Martin Sheen, Felicity Jones. The film is directed by Marc Webb.
