Spiderman may be just under a year away – for those that care to do the maths, that’s ages – but that hasn’t stopped the buzz. And rarely is that buzz stronger (buzzier) than it is when a new bit of footage is released. Comic-Con 2013 provided us with just that.

“I can feel it in the walls. I feel it in my veins,” warns the latest Spider-Man villain in the latest piece of footage revealed. “No matter what you do doc, you can’t contain it. You want to know how powerful I am? Well I want to know too. I’m Electro,” he says.

Fox, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Ray Charles and most recently starred in Quentin Tarantino’s controversial slave flick, Django Unchained, looks pretty terrorfying as Electro, who in the legend of Spiderman, gained the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning while working on a power line. It could have so easily been the other way round if Stan Lee had preferred volts to arachnids.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will see Sally Field (Aunt May) and Martin Sheen (Uncle Ben) reprise their roles from the last film, while Andre Garfield (Peter Parker) and Emma Stone (Gwen) will be joined by Shailene Woodley (Mary Jane Watson) and Paul Giamatti (The Rhino) as new members for the sequel. Given the 2012 film’s popularity, the 2014 follow up has a lot to live up to, but judging by the early footage and pictures, it’s going to be there or thereabouts.
