Hello, Electro! Just a few days after picking up the MTV Generation Award at this year’s MTV Movie Awards, Jamie Foxx was caught filming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” in the middle of Times Square in his Electro makeup. I’m pretty sure this shoot took place in the actual Times Square and not the elaborate set recreation in Bethpage, NY, unless director Marc Webb is busing in fans and photographers to document the recording process. So this means that Jamie Foxx made his big debut as Electro just outside our offices and I didn’t even catch it.
Electro’s look is a drastic departure from the comic, but considering the 2-D Max Dillon wears a green spandex jumpsuit and an enormous lightning bolt mask, this update makes perfect sense. You can make out some lightning bolt-ish veins on Foxx’s face, which is a nice nod to the character’s signature mask. The makeup itself looks great, so I can’t wait to see how it looks on the big screen.
