    This would be his third version of the character, he's already done his second version on the Ultimate Spider-Man TV series.

    I live just about 25 miles south-east of Rochester NY and I learned yesterday that Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be filming some cars chase scenes here within the month!

    Maybe that's just an intermediary look in the movie and something closer to the comic book look will show up in the later part of the movie?
    Though, the mask would look absolutely ridiculous on the live action screen.

    Yeah, I should have included a winking smiley. I didn't really expect them to use the classic costume (at least not the mask anyway), and I do like the look, it's pretty badass, especially the skin tone. It makes him look unearthly.

    Now I'm hoping for a lot of electricity puns from Spidey.

    What a shocking idea.

    I am completely deflated by this version of Electro. Looks like a failed makeup test for Avatar. Holding out hopes for a cool Rhino costume.

    I don't have a problem with Electro's look. Anything's better than that stupid yellow starburst mask. And of course you can't judge from a set photo how something will look in the final movie with proper lighting and lenses and image processing and such.

    Not to mention any special effects that might be part of the overall look.

    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.

    Which was directed by James Cameron, who submitted a script for a "Spider-man" movie


    Let's keep this 6 degrees chain going!

    ^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.

    Wow.

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

    Were people really expecting the cheesy yellow and green outfit?

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

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