Jamie Foxx is currently promoting ‘Django Unchained’ and in a new interview with MTV News, Foxx reveals this his character, Electro, won’t be outlandish and have lightning bolts coming out of his head.
He says, “It won’t be like that. Marc Webb and all those guys who are doing it are smart. They know that it has to make sense in 2013 so the suit is really slick. It’s not green, it’s actually black. But you know, it’s the new age and so I’m really excited about that. My little daughter’s excited so it’s great.”
The interviewer also asks about how the character comes together, and Foxx replies, “Yeah, what happens is that you will see his whole life is that no one’s talking to him and people have stolen his ideas at the big company and he’s a nobody. And at a certain point, Spiderman bumps into him and says, “You’re my guy. You’re my ears and eyes on the street.” And he says his name, Matt. And no one’s ever said Matt Dillon’s name. And he goes ‘wow’, and when Spiderman leaves, he sort of thinks that somehow ‘I am Spider-man’s partner’. So he’s cutting out his face and pastes it on his board, and then when everything goes bad, and his mom doesn’t remember his birthday, and all these crazy things happen, finally he has something tragic happen, and he turns it on and lights it up. “
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to be released in 2014.
