There's a very good chance that Jamie Foxx will spend most of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 looking nothing like Jamie Foxx. Due to a lab experiment gone wrong in the film, Foxx's character, Max Dillon, is transformed into the villain Electro, and as a result is made up to look like a man made out of pure blue energy. Before all of that occurs, however, there will be at least a few scenes of Foxx being the normal human version of Dillon, and one of those sequences is showcased in the new still from the movie that you see above.
This is actually the third time that we've now gotten to witness Foxx's horrifically nerdy new look in the superhero blockbuster. Back when the film was in production during the summer, director Marc Webb Tweeted the first look at the character:
And then he was shown having a chat with Spidey in a batch of stills that came out right before San Diego Comic-Con.
That's one awful looking comb-over, huh? Well, that bad hairstyle goes away when the character undergoes his big transformation in the film, which we got to preview this summer in this short clip:
We're still hoping to see a lot more of the character and soon... and the good news is that our wait for new footage will be ending in the next couple weeks. As teased late last month, the first ever trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will finally be arriving with IMAX screenings of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. In addition to Electro, we're hoping that the preview will also let us see other villains like The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper), but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
Based on a script by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the upcoming sequel finds Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) as he works to try and balance his burgeoning superhero career as Spider-Man with life as an ordinary student at Midtown High School. Emma Stone, Sally Field, and Martin Sheen will all reprise their roles from the first movie, while other new additions include Dane DeHaan (as Harry Osborn), Colm Feore, Sarah Gadon, and B.J. Novak.
