Earlier today, Jamie Foxx revealed that his Electro costume in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be much different than the green and yellow spandex look from the Marvel comic books. The actor also spilled new details about his character's origin, before Max Dillon turns into Electro, and how he first encounters Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man.
"What you'll see is that, for his whole life, no one is talking to him. People have stolen his ideas at the big company. He's a nobody. At a certain point, Spider-Man bumps into him and says, 'You're my guy. You're my ears and eyes on the street.' Then he says his name, and no one has ever said Max Dillon's name. He goes, 'Wow' and, when Spider-Man leaves, he sort of thinks that, 'I am Spider-Man's partner.' He's cutting out Spider-Man's face and pasting it on all his boards. Everything goes bad with his mom. She doesn't remember his birthday. He has something tragic happen and, when it turns on, he lights it up."
These new details expand on what he previously said about the character, that he "gets the short end of the stick from the whole world." The actor also revealed that his suit is actually black.
"Marc Webb and all those guys who are doing it are smart. They know that it has to make sense in 2013 so the suit is really slick. It's not green. It's actually black."
