Spidey 2 actress teases Jamie Foxx's transformation into Electro

We’ve been wondering what Jamie Foxx’s version of Electro might look like in Amazing Spider-Man 2, and now an extra working on the set of Marc Webb’s sequel has been kind enough to spill some details.

Jamie Jones dropped some tweets about her experience during a scene that apparently featured Jamie Foxx’s transformation into the film’s big bad Electro. She has since deleted those tweets (not much of a surprise), but not before some intrepid fans were able to grab them.

So what’d she see? Apparently Electro is taking on a silvery-blue look, and is well on the way to sporting his trademark green and yellow suit. Yes, this is the first (apparent) confirmation that Foxx’s look will be taking cues from the comic character’s outfit, and it’ll be interesting to see how Webb imagines the design.

Here's the text of her posts in chronological order, which were tweeted from April 2-4:

Jamie Foxx is here!! Surprised the mess out of me! This night is about to get even better!

“@marvel_spider: @jamiejonesnyc Was he in costume as Electro?”<<--Not full on yet. The phase where he's becoming him. Jamie Foxx is bad ass!

By the way, @iamjamiefoxx is KILLING his role as Electro. And he likes to do Michael Jackson dance moves in between takes. LOL

@marvel_spider His face & hands are silvery-grey. Eyes silvery blue. He's not in the green & yellow suit yet, but feeling his powers now.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2, 2014.

How do you think Electro will look in the sequel? Do you like what we’ve heard so far?
