Thanks to Quentin Tarantino, Jamie Foxx is riding high off his turn in Django Unchained and for his next role, he’ll be switching to the villainous side for one of next summer’s biggest films. Revealed on the Times Square set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last night, the actor would make Tobias Fünke proud, as he appeared almost unrecognizable, covered in blue as the baddie Electro. Directed by Marc Webb, check out what Foxx told Blackfilm regarding his character’s costume and see the rest of the photos below:
