While promoting his latest film, ‘Django Unchained,’ which opens on Xmas Day, Oscar winner Jamie Foxx (‘Ray’) spoke to Blackfilm.com exclusively about the costume installed for him in his role as Max Dillon/Electro in the sequel to‘The Amazing Spider-Man.’
Are you ready to don on the green and yellow outfit for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’?
Jamie Foxx: 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 book-y, 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 really, really well. Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb both commented on how great the script is, so it should be an exciting time.
Webb, who also directed the first film, reunites with Garfield, who plays Peter Parker/ Spider-Man, and Emma Stone, who plays Gwen Stacy. New additions include Chronicle star Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, the son of Green Goblin alter ego Norman Osborn, and Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is scheduled for release on May 2, 2014. Production will begin in early 2013 in New York.
Update: As of April 15, 2013, the first pics of Foxx as Electro as been posted online.
