As others pointed out when I previously wondered what Jamie Foxx’s Electro’s outfit would look like in the upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spiderman – the silly-looking green and yellow tights, or the Ultimate Electro design – it looks like Foxx’s Electro will be closer to the Ultimate Electro illustration than the former.
The film is currently shooting in New York, and one of the problems with shooting in such a congested city is that it’s hard to go unnoticed.
Fans snapped the below photos of Jamie Foxx in makeup as Electro, apparently trying to blend in with the common folk.
There’ll likely be some CGI added to the final composition of the suit to match the comics.
Electro’s superhero villain abilities includes being able to store, project, and manipulate electricity with his body, as well as manipulate magnetic fields. Not only can he fly, but he can also travel along electricity lines and through electrical appliances!
Apparently, in the post-credit sequence of The Amazing Spider-Man, there’s a hint that Electro would be in the sequel.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are returning with Marc Webb (who tweeted the above) returning to the director’s chair as well.
Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the sequel.
The Amazing Spider-Man grossed $751 million worldwide, and the sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which will be in 3D, is set to be released on May 2, 2014.

Ok, Spider-Man geniuses… are you excited about seeing Foxx as Electro?
