Sony has released more photos of Jamie Foxx as “Max Dillon” right before he becomes “Electro” in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which you can see on the next page.
In the comics, “Electro’s” alter ego, “Max Dillon,” was given the power to control electricity after being struck by lightning while repairing a power line. He first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man No. 9 in 1964.
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
“I can feel it in the walls. I feel it in my veins,” Foxx says in a voiceover — undoubtedly talking about his new powers. “No matter what you do, doc, you can’t contain it. You want to know how powerful I am? Well, I want to know, too. I’m Electro.”
Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in theaters on May 2, 2014.
