First look: Jamie Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Foxx snapped on-set as new Spidey villain.

The first pictures of Jamie Foxx as new villain Electro in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ have been leaked online.

Foxx was snapped on-set in Time Square, New York, shrouded in an LED-lit black hoodie and sporting some impressively scaly electric blue skin underneath. It’s very, very creepy.

Scaly... Electro's new look (Credit: Splash)Foxx stars in the web-slinging sequel as Max Dillon, a.k.a. Electro - a bad guy who gains the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning whilst working on a power line. In the comics Electro can also manipulate electronic devises, and can shoot lightning arcs from his finger tips. Very Emperor Palpatine.
