Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is in full swing, and today some set photos have arrived on-line thanks to the Daily Mail and Flicks and Bits. The images give us our first look at Jamie Foxx as the films main villain, Electro, and the actor is pretty much unrecognisable. Painted blue and looking slightly mutated, the make-up is astonishing, and very impressive.
Back in December Foxx commented on his role, saying the filmmakers wanted “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 happened.”
Whatever they have done with Electro, I am sure you agree is looks very interesting. Check out the photos below.
The sequel to last year’s critical and box office hit The Amazing Spider-Man, the film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Chris Cooper and Sally Field.
In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner, with a previous draft by James Vanderbilt, and based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are the producers.
The latest chapter in the Spider-Man story is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014.
