Yeah I'm guessing the makeup is part of the CGI that will be added later on. It seems more and more like they're going with the Ultimate version of the character.

^And Cameron's Spidey movie featured a version of Electro as its main villain!


The latest pictures show that his hoodie has rows of LEDs inside that illuminate his face when lit. I'm betting that the LEDs will be hidden by the camera angle or digitally removed, that this is a clever practical effect to make it look like his face is glowing from within. I like that. I like Webb's commitment to using practical effects as much as feasible, and this one reminds me of a similar, well-done lighting trick from the pilot episode of the 1967 The Invaders. Although I bet it's only for distant or midrange shots where you can't see him too clearly under the hood, and that in closeups or without the hoodie they'll use digital effects to impart a glow.

IIRC, Marc Webb also consulted with Cameron regarding use of 3-D technology before making the first TAS movie.

Electro.

No green and yellow
Wow.

I hope that's not the finished product because that looks embarrassingly awful.

You mean like Spidey's cheesy blue and red outfit?

I like this look for Electro. I can definitely see a lot of the Ultimate version in the look here.

Speculation is that the lights within his hood are just practical effects used to make his skin appear bio luminescent.

It could have at least been a dark green hoodie to maintain a link to the original Electro.

I don't think green would go well with the blue skin. And Electro has had blue-and-white costumes at times in the past.

Works pretty well, IMHO:

Honestly after the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon after marvel got the animation rights back I can't help but think this is a good thing.
