This isn’t the classic Electro look you may be used to, with the green and yellow lightning bolts, as Jamie told BlackFilm.com 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.
