If that LED hoodie that you see in the above photo is part of Jamie Foxx's Electro costume for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, then doesn't he remind you of another shocking villain: Star Wars uber-baddie Darth Sidious? Part of the resemblance has to do with the hunched way in which Foxx is carrying himself and holding his hands in the photo, but look at the comparison below:
Freaky, no? According to an interview Foxx gave to BlackFilm in December and other photos I've seen of him on the set, he'll look nothing like the Sith lord when he emerges from that item of clothing. Fox appears to have subtle lightning-bolt-like veins on his neck and face. (Sidious looks like a more humanoid version of Yoda.) And he's said that he'll have "bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what [happened]."
Not sure if Foxx means lightning bolts or actual Frankenstein-like bolts, but, if his upside-down scenes are anything like the ones he had in Django Unchained, I guess we'll also find out if those bolts are everywhere on his body, if you know what I mean.
Now, I'd love to see a shot of Paul Giamatti as the Rhino — as long as he doesn't look like Dexter Jettster.
