Remember those eerie pictures of Jamie Foxx as Electro in “Amazing Spider-Man 2“? AOL just one-upped those photos with video footage of the actor stumbling through Times Square, all Electro-fied. The footage even has a shot of Foxx sans oversized hoodie, revealing his bald, blue head. But whether or not Foxx will be that blue on the big screen remains to be seen, since some of the photos and footage make him seem much more silver than blue. Check out the full video below.
It seems obvious to me that this scene takes place just after Electro gets his powers. The way Foxx is stumbling around, he looks like he’s been physically harmed. I doubt he’ll be wearing a hoodie and jeans when he goes toe-to-toe with Spider-Man. Maybe there’s still hope that Electro will have a costume reminiscent of his iconic Steve Ditko-designed one. It’s also possible that this scene is linked to one of Marc Webb’s previous TwitPics, showing off the result of one of Electro’s blasts.
There have been no sightings of Paul Giamatti as the Rhino or Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn, so I’m still anticipating plenty more first looks during “The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s” shoot. We did, however, get a clear look at Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy in a metric ton of photos snapped by onlookers during the taping of a date scene in Union Square.
