Jamie Foxx Filming ‘Spider-Man’ In Rochester — And You Could Get Involved!

Jamie Foxx is the starring villain in a blockbuster movie set to film in Upstate New York. Check out this historic role and how YOU can be a part of the action inside!

Sony Pictures

For the first time in Spider-Man movie history, one of the main characters will be portrayed by an African-American. Oscar Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx will play “Electro” in ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’!

He was spotted in this electrifying costume Monday night while filming in Times Square.

This isn’t the classic Electro look you may be used to, with the green and yellow lightning bolts, as Jamie told about his ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ costume:

It won’t be green and yellow. It will be a different color. They (the producers) want something for the future. They want to have it more grounded and not as comic book-y, so it won’t be green and yellow. They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happen. How did he become this way? So, it will be some new stuff.

The Spider-Man crew is filming locally in Rochester starting from late April through early May, and they are looking for extras! This is big news for the New York film industry outside New York City.
