New Photos and Details of The Amazing Spiderman 2
3 of 5 New Details On Electro's Alter-Ego
Judging by what looks like an "obsession wall" behind him, it looks like Dillon will already be obsessed with Spider-Man before he even becomes Electro. Jamie Foxx himself actually confirmed it in an interview with MTV News.
"You'll see that in his whole life, no one is talking to him. People have stolen his ideas at the big company. He's a nobody," Foxx told MTV News. "At a certain point, Spider-Man bumps into him and says, 'You're my guy. You're my eyes and ears on the street. And he says his name. No one has ever said Dillon's name."
This explains the obsession Dillon has with Spider-Man. "He sort of starts thinking that somehow, he's Spider-Man's partner," Foxx explained. But things take a turn for the worse when his own mother forgets his birthday. A series of "tragic" and "crazy" events lead to Dillon eventually transforming into the well-known comic book criminal with the ability to manipulate electricity for his own nefarious needs. .
So Electro isn't just an out and out bad guy; he's just a big thinker who never got recognized, until it was far too late. And he won't be the only villain Spider-Man will be facing...
