Set photos of Jamie Foxx as The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s villainous Electro have leaked online.  Foxx commented on the look of his character back in December saying that the costume would be black, and the filmmakers wanted “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 happened.”  This look is surprising, but not bad as it fits with the more realistic approach director Marc Webb is taking with the franchise.  The scene appears to take place before Electro gets his full costume, but the hoodie looks like it has tracking dots to add special effects in post production.

The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.

Official synopsis for The Amazing Spider-Man 2:

In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

      Lame. The first one blew and this one probably will too.
