"We wanted some theatricality for this villain. What makes him interesting is the really ironic evolution of the character. He starts off as Spider-Man's biggest fan and ends up being Spider-Man's biggest foe."

"We shot his exterior and then created a glowing light source that is buried deep within his core that exudes and generates electric light. If you look at a cloud when a thunderstorm is coming and the lightning is within that cloud, we use that as a natural inspiration for the character."

"Electro is a god in terms of the power that he wields. To be faced with that creates a whole host of problems, obstacles and drama. That's great to have between those two people." - Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man)

"[He's] really getting the thrills of that virtuosity. [Swinging]'s going to be a side of him you'll want to relish. This time, there's a jollity we've really embraced."
