Electro Spider-Man

Spider-Man fans know that the original version of Electro had a kind of jiggling starfish on his face (as you can see above), the power to control electricity, and (obviously) a deep and abiding love for all things Brazilian. The character has been updated several times — including a flaming skull look and a brief stint as Red Skull’s son — but for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it turns out that Marc Webb and company are going with the Ultimate version of the character.

“News organization” The Daily Mail recently published some candid shots of Foxx in full effects make-up as the villain (which you can see below). There’s a little bit of Avatar going on and a little bit of Schwarzenegger-style Mr. Freeze, but it seems clear that they’re going all out with the design. Of course, Peter fought a giant lizard last time, so the door’s wide open for treating the villains as insanely as the comics did.

Check out the pics for yourself and please offer your own descriptive combinations:

Also, I think I just now got Foxx’s joke about the character being more “grounded.”

Can’t believe it took me so long.
