When I first heard that Jamie Foxx was cast as Electro in Marc Webb‘s, Amazing Spider-Man 2; well, I had some pretty mixed feelings. I didn’t fully come on board until I saw the makeup, and since then I’ve been convinced that it’s going to be pretty cool. Plus, Foxx likes to talk about how excited he is to play the character, and offers some more insight on the villain below.


Said about the character,

“The way we crafted Electro is that when he’s Max you definitely feel for him,” said Foxx. “Because he’s just sort of been shut out. No one really cares about him, and it’s his birthday. And even his mom forgets his birthday.”


The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The Marc Webb directed sequel opens May 2, 2014.
