Jamie Foxx Spills THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Plot Details

Jamie Foxx is currently out doing the press rounds for the upcoming Django Unchained, and naturally questions quickly turned to the actor’s involvement in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, in which he will be bringing Electro to life on the big screen as the main villain.

In an interview with MTV, the actor revealed a pretty important plot point from the movie, and that the Electro we see in this movie might be completely different than the one we know from the comics. Check his comments out below:

“You’ll see that in his whole life, no one is talking to [Electro]. People have stolen his ideas at the big company. He’s a nobody. At a certain point, Spider-Man bumps into him and says, ‘You’re my guy. You’re my eyes and ears on the street.’ And he says his name — no one has ever said [Max] Dillon’s name.”

Foxx goes on to say that the costume in the movie won’t be the classic green and yellow get-up, but rather the Ultimate version. Additionally, he hints that due to a series of ‘unfortunate events’ we see him turn into the villain we know and love.

    This film is going to suck so hard. Jamie Foxx as Electro. Lol. What’s next? Wil Smith as Kraven the Hunter? Jet Li as Doc Ock.

      You’re an awesome racist!! Who cares about the skin color? The guy can act. Electro’s a pretty one note villain. Not much character, there; he’s mostly defined by being part of the Sinister Six. Jamie Foxx will give him some depth, for sure. Don’t be a tool.

    This is 100% poor casting for Electro. Stars shouldnt be considered for parts just because they lobby hard for them. I would have gone with somebody like Jackie Earl Hayley for Electro. In this new version it looks like Jamie Foxx is gonna be some electric boffin who has an accident right? It should be somebody like Hayley, an everyman ‘up the telegraph pole’ electric maintennance man who’s picked on and down on his luck. He suddenly gets his abilities and becomes drunk on power. Foxx NO. Hayley YES. Poor choice Webb.

    Willy2fly: It sounds like Foxx is playing a guy down on his luck. Nobodies ever said his name before? He’s a complete nobody? Sound’s like your description. Vangpo: Racist
    666: Yah, he’s not everyone’s guy. Don’t watch it, for sure.
    Mike Dice: Why? They actually changed the outfit BACK to the traditional design. The only not 616 is that Electro is black. Who cares? Christ, racist fanboys make me want to throw up.

    Look, I have no problem with black Electro. I do, however, have a problem with Jamie Foxx Electro. Why? Because Jamie Foxx plays overconfident, arrogant, badasses. Maybe he could play Kingpin, or Tombstone.
