We have been following the sequel to Marc Webb’s Spider-man reboot pretty close for the last few months, as news and set pics keep revealing more and more about the film. A few months ago we were teased with a look at Jamie Foxx after his transformation to Electro, but aside from a few effects and makeup, there really wasn’t much to see. Entertainment Weekly has recently released a few covers for thier Comic-Con issue, and they offer our first good look at the costume of Electro and the make-up we saw earlier in full effect. Let’s take a look at the image after the jump:
Not too shabby. There’s no denying that it’s an interesting glimpse into the costume, and while it is certainly a departure from his classic yellow and green duds, it looks practical and kind of cool. Chances are Oscorp will have a hand in developing this suit for him, and seeing the two of them face off like this is pretty exciting.
What I like about the costume is that it seems to take a book out of Frankenstien’s monster, which is pretty apt considering their similar origins. And by similar, I mean it has something to do with lightning/electricity. And at least it’s a costume we can all get behind, there are too many superhero movies that throw the costume out the window, and in doing do they lose a lot of what makes that character great. Webb seems intent on preserving that superhero quality with his devotion to the costumes of the characters, and if this is what Electro looks like, then I can’t wait to see the Rhino, or even the inevitable Green Goblin!
There will definitely be more to come during CCI, so be sure to stay locked here to find out all the news as we get it from our reporters who will be at the Con this year!
