Last fall, there were talks of Jamie Foxx appearing in the sequel to last year’s The Amazing Spider-Man franchise. Now, a series of photos have surfaced featuring Foxx starring as one of Spiderman’s nemeses.
The Daily Mail caught several snaps of Foxx in costume walking around Times Square as Maxwell Dillon, an electrical engineer who becomes mutated after a freak lightning accident. Becoming the super villain Electro, the character is known as one of Spider-Man’s most frequent and feared enemies in the Marvel Comics franchise.
“I’m going to keep it close to the chest but I followed the Spider-Man comic books,” said Foxx. “It’s another testament to Quentin Tarantino because without Django, I wouldn’t be doing Spider-Man.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 from director Marc Webb hits theaters in 2014.
