As Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes together we’ve gotten a glimpse of what the new Spider-Man costume looks like. Personally, I think it’s the best movie Spider-Man costume thus far. We’ve also gotten to see what the movie version of Electro, played by Jamie Foxx, looks like. They’ve now released on set stills of Gwen Stacy, played by the lovely Emma Stone, as well as pre-Electro Jamie Foxx.
I was honestly pretty skeptical about Jamie Foxx playing Electro but after seeing Jamie Foxx as a balding, nerdy Max Dillon, prior to becoming Electro, I’m much more hopeful. It reminds me of his role in the underrated movie Collateral, where Jamie Foxx wasn’t your typical badass but a hero who rose to the occasion. In this case, he’s not some criminal mastermind but an electrical engineer who’s the victim of an accident.
This is what I’ve always hoped a Spider-Man costume would look like on the big screen, let’s just hope that he keeps the mask on more often this time around.
Those who are familiar with the Gwen Stacy’s story in the comics will definitely pick up on this particular outfit potentially being a spoiler for the movie. I wouldn’t elaborate but I’m sure if you want to know bad enough you can put the pieces together.
