They could have some bolts arcing around his face, briefly, in the shape of the original mask.

I'm not liking anything I'm hearing about Electro.

From the horrible casting of Foxx, to the bad idea of not having a comic book looking costume(especially the confirmation of no green or yellow), to the horrible plot of him being a nobody so much so no one knows his name and mom forgetting birthday, etc.

The writer needs to be smacked senseless.

The thing is, I don't care about "change" that much. In fact, I welcome it when I watch comic book movies, as long as it is done well, and certain things are kept the same (such as Green Goblin being the one responsible for Gwen's death, not Electro).
There is always a balance when adapting a comic book to the big screen. In general if the character is not particularly compelling, its okay to change them to make them work better on screen, however if the character is already compelling, there really is no need to change them.Sebastian Shaw wasn't a Nazi in the comics , but that worked well on screen. Dr. doom as some slimy tycoon didn't work, because he was more interesting as a dictator in the comics.

Change when necessary, but don't necessarily change. However I think it would be hard to write a movie around Electro, with 3 acts and a climax, if he is just some guy who gets electrical powers and starts robbing banks.

Except in the comics, Electro does have an inferiority complex and his mother often put him down and tried to destroy his self esteem. So its not like this characterization is out of the blue. Besides the inferiority is the most interesting thing about Electro's personality in the comics and like I said before, it would be hard to make a movie around Electro if he is just some guy who gets electrical powers and then robs banks.

I'm willing to possibly give the writers a chance as the source where I read the outline was from MTV, but I still don't like the whole comic suit ignorance after giving the best looking Spidey, a pretty damn accurate Lizard, and the beautiful Gwen. The whole ignoring the comic designs is just sheer stupidity.

I'm surprised they used the derpiest face pic of Foxx they could find.

Also the forehead thing looks stupid.

His suit is literally the Ultimate One, with a few modifactions.

I'm sure this will be better.

I don't see why it can't be an amalgamation of his 616 and Ultimate look.

It gets annoying when people bring up cosplay costumes while referencing movies, as if movie studios would really go that cheap.
Even their crapiest costumes cost more than a couple of dozen cosplayers.

Remove the underwear and change the spiky mask and the material of the costume and it IS better

Anybody that thinks the green and yellow comics suit is better suited for Webb's Spidey-verse (see what I did there?) is being silly.

It just wouldn't make sense at all.

Now, Jamie said "liquid rubber", so I got the impression that like, whatever he was wearing melted partly onto his skin.
