'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' actor Andrew Garfield says new villain Electro, played by Jamie Foxx, is far more ''complicated'' than other villains his character has battled.
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' character Electro is ''more complicated'' than other villains.
Andrew Garfield - who plays the web-slinging superhero - thinks his titular character's rival, real name Max Dillon, in the 2014 sequel shares similar character traits to Spider-Man's geeky alter-ego Peter Parker and is therefore more relatable than other comic book bad guys.
He said: ''Max, like Peter, feels outcast by his society, feels less than [others], feels trampled on, feels like he has this great power inside but doesn't know where to put it. I use 'villain' in inverted commas because I feel he's more complicated than that and thankfully so.''
Garfield believes Electro's ''villainy is born out of his pain'' after the character - who is played by Jamie Foxx - goes ignored and is ridiculed at his workplace, science laboratory Oscorp.
Speaking to the new issue of Empire magazine, he explained: ''Peter's heroism is born out of his pain and it's this interesting idea that it could go both ways. Who knows what defines which way it goes? There is a definite parallel between Max and Peter, and Peter sees that immediately in Max and feels complete compassion.''
