Jamie Foxx sat down with MTV recently to talk about the news that he’s been cast as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Foxx explains that the costume will look a bit different than what we’re used to seeing in the comics — “it has to make sense in 2013. The suit is really slick. It’s not green, it’s actually black.”
Foxx also goes on to talk about his characters backstory:
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.
