“Amazing Spider-Man 2” actor Jamie Foxx opened up to Yahoo! Movies about his transformation into a comic book super villain. We’ve already seen a sneak peek of his Electro persona during a few scenes shot in Times Square, but judging by Foxx’s comments, there will be more to Electro’s look than just blue body paint and a hoodie.
“Oh, man, it’s so much fun,” says Foxx about the experience. “The costume is great. They were very creative with it… It’s a couple hours of work [to get into makeup], but it’s really so much fun. It’s part of a remarkable legacy: Spider-Man. I mean, when you’re growing up as a kid, you know, that’s everything. So to be able to be in that is just amazing.”
Foxx also revealed that San Diego Comic Con attendees could be the first to see Foxx’s total Electro makeover.
“Now I’m just waiting to get to Comic-Con and see how people respond to it. [Director] Marc Webb is a genius and Amy Pascal and everybody at Sony have just be so gracious to allow me to have this opportunity. So it’s cool.”
Of course Foxx could be wondering how people will respond at Comic Con to the look we’ve already seen; it wouldn’t be surprising if the people behind “Amazing Spider-Man 2” kept Electro’s full-on bad guy suit secret until closer to the film’s release date next summer.
