It is such a nice change to see a villain who isn’t all CGI. Today, we are getting our first look at Jamie Foxx as Electro from Amazing Spider-Man 2. Right now, all I can say is that he is the most menacing Smurf I’ve ever seen.
Honestly, I’m really happy with what I’m seeing here. I know that we will be getting some heavy CG add ons, but I really hated how the Lizard looked in the first film and I love this more grounded look (no pun intended). Also, I think we can all be happy with the fact that they did’t put him in the classic green and yellow costume.
Joining Foxx in the film are: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field.
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.
