"We tried a few different versions of the look. There were some that involved a lot more blue, but this one just looked the best. And it cut the make-up down from four hours to about one-and-a-half, which is good for me. I like this suit. The suit works. It's badass. I could wear this to the clubs."
Although the actor got his showbiz start in comedy, he actually resisted any lines that hinted at Electro being funny.
"I didn't want Electro to be funny at all. There were lines I thought he shouldn't say...this is a man who's angry. He's mad at the gods. He's just using Spider-Man and these people as an excuse to act out and be evil. The voice is from me watching Clint Eastwood and Alec Baldwin. The great whisperers."
When asked if he encountered any negativity towards him being cast as Electro, he blasted fanboys' early reactions to his casting, and other actors who stepped into iconic superhero roles.
"It used to be people would wait until they saw the film to decide their opinion. Now it's, 'Ben Affleck is Batman?! How [frick]ing dare you!' What's that all about? These blogs don't like anything. Christian Bale. Heath Ledger. They weren't happy - until they saw them. So you have to not give too much to it."
