This is what Electro has traditionally looked like in the Spider-Man comics:
And this is what Jamie Foxx, recently cast as that character for the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2, has said about the outfit:
“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 bookie, 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”
Well, there you go.
One idea is that Electro will look more like he did in the following version, which was referred to as Electro Ultimate and looked like this:
I’m a novice in the world of Spider-Man so I have no real opinion other than I’m pretty stoked that they’re going outside of the box with the Foxx casting.
But what are the thoughts on this villain choice? Does it make sense in this new world of Spider-Man that Marc Webb is creating? You tell me.
