It should come as no surprise to us that we wouldn't see Jamie Foxx sporting the classic green and yellow Electro costume in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Here's what the actor had to say in an interview with Blackfilm.com about the costume,
It won’t be green and yellow. It will be a different color. They (the producers) want something for the future. They want to have it more grounded and not as comic bookie, so it won’t be green and yellow. They want 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 happen. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff.
In the script, this villain is the first time it’s be written well. Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb both commented on how great the script is, so it should be an exciting time.
There's a possibility that the new costume is more influenced by the "Ultimate" version of the character which also didn't feature the green and yellow, but then it could also end up being something completely different. Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing Foxx in the role!
The movie also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Martin Sheen, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn. The movie will be released on May 2nd, 2014.
