The shocking style of Spider-Man supervillain Electro

By Melissa Platero, CCNN Writer

Earlier in the week at Comic-Con, Marvel released its first teaser trailer for the sequel The Amazing Spiderman 2. The trailer focused on Electro (played by Jamie Foxx), a lightning-powered supervillain who gained the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning while working on a power line. Since Electro is such a fan favorite, it’s no surprise that the filmmaker’s decision to completely change his look has caused plenty of controversy with the fans. See, diehard Spidy fans wanted Marvel to stay true to the comics and keep him human with his signature green and yellow spandex outfit. Okay, maybe not the spandex, but to go all Smurf blue with him? Blasphemy! Even with all the hatred being directed at the new Electro look, Marvel assures us that fans will hardly notice the changes with the talented Jamie Foxx on the job.
