As cool as the pictures we posted of Jamie Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were, they were still just set pictures, his face & make-up obscured by a hood. Today, we get our first clear look at the film’s principle villain, as well as Dane DeHaan, who plays Peter Parker’s buddy, Harry Osborn.
Principal photography is still underway on the sequel, directed by Marc Webb. This time around, the screenplay has been written by JJ Abrams’ buddies Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner, based on a story by James Vanderbilt.
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, opening in theaters on May 2, 2014, 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 (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
