Spiderman 2 Update: Jamie Foxx Looks Terrifying As Electro, Maxwell Dillon Not So Much

Pictures have been revealed of Jamie Foxx’s look in Spiderman 2. Sporting a receding hairline wig as Maxwell Dillon, and Foxx looks like a pathetic loser. After (as geeks will now) the lighting strike, and he’s looking scary as Electro.

The pictures were released from the set, and show Foxx wearing bland work clothes and carrying a briefcase. His character arc sees him a lonely, workaday American, until lighting strikes and he takes on Electro – a far more terrifying prospect. With a black cape and luminous blue face – veins popping out – Foxx really cuts the mustard as a villain, so far anyway. But the original, comic book character doesn’t look like that; the 1963 version was green and yellow, so what’s changed? “It won't be green and yellow. It will be a different colour,” Foxx confirmed before the picture was released. “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?"

The evolution of the superhero movie has seen a darker, more philosophical turn supersede the 60s and 70s efforts. And this upcoming Spiderman follow up – scheduled for an April 2014 release – is no different. “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,” Foxx added.
