Now I bet Spidey will make Electro stop by making him realise he's good at heart or something, just like with Doc Ock.
I don't, I'm betting on him being more Andrew from Chronicle than Doc Ock from Spider-Man 2. I think he'll be a good guy that just got screwed over one too many times and ends up losing it beyond hope.

Some of the greatest villians in comic book history (like The Joker, Doc Ock, Green Goblin, etc) all have had a prior connection to their protagonist.

I see no issue with this being done with otherwise less interesting villains when they are adapted for film.

I've got a feeling that he'll end up as a sympathetic villain.

"Marc Webb and all those guys who are doing it are smart," Foxx says. "They know that it has to make sense in 2013 so the suit is really slick. It's not green. It's actually black."

I'm not sure if I'm going to believe what Jamie Foxx said. I mean, Electro is kinda old in this movie, so I don't see how him getting pissed that his mom forgot his birthday is the truth. Its not impossible, but they could definitely go with better options.
Also, about Max Dillon knowing Spidey, its not as bad because he only knows Spider-man, not Peter. Spidey is probably having an effect on the entire city, but still I would like it where the antagonist has no ties to the protagonist just one time.

Don't you guys think he deserves some kind of punishment for spilling the beans?

I say recast him at least

"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 about Electro's back story in the "Spider-Man" sequel. "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 [Max] Dillon's name."

The encounter leaves Dillon reeling with Spider-Man fan fever. "He sort of starts thinking that somehow, he's Spider-Man's partner," Foxx explained. But Dillon's good fortunes take a turn for the worse when his own mother forgets his birthday, leading to a series of "tragic" and "crazy" events that turn Dillon into the electrically-enhanced nemesis comic book readers are familiar with.

"When it turns on, he lights it up," the actor teased.
So basically Max Dillon will be your classic loser who's been stepped on by people all of his life, and is going to get back at the world once he gets his powers.

That's the vibe I'm getting here.

Same. I bet when he gets his powers he'll find Spidey and assume they're now partners, and Spider-Man will make a jibe about not even remembering him and that'll be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

It somehow felt much better after watching the actual interview because he says it in a way that made me feel more calm about it haha!

About the birthday thing, remember how alone he feels and has felt in his entire life with no acknowledgement even from his own family. When you're in such a state, even the most childish thing can feel devastating.

I'm already warming up to it. I'd rather they stick to their ideas than erase half of it halfway through.

Recast Foxx? He's a great actor and will, if anything, bring more depth to the character.

Yeah after watching the interview it felt as if that was just one small thing among many other bad things happening at the same time.

He even says "...and all these crazy things happen"

Could be pretty cool.


Funny, this suddenly feels like a pretty great story!

I don't understand why this news is making so many people worried.

At least Electro sounds like he is going to be different from all the rest of the Spider-Man movie villains. Sure, he will be "sympathetic," but wasn't Magneto in the X-Men films?

The only thing I'm worried about is if they choose to have Electro kill Gwen Stacey.

This talk about a company stealing his ideas makes me really think now that he'll go after Norman.

I agree! It would be really cool to see villains fighting each other IMO.

I thought he was joking, then I watched the interview.
I'm not really confident, but things taken out of context usually sound bad. I just hope it doesn't sound stupid in the movie.

You know the shock gloves Green Goblin sometimes uses? Maybe that's one example of things Max originally created?

Well that's the thing, he's sympathetic, like magneto and sandman and doc ock and lizard. Point is, I'm a little sick of all the sympathetic villains.

I hope his death is very tragic in the way that in the end, he's completely lost himself to the hate but as soon as there's a glimpse of hope Green Goblin kills him.

That Birthday plot point (if true) is something that would endear you to a loser like Max Dillan in the comics 20 + years ago, but make you laugh your a** of if it's used on film in 2014.

I'd expect nothing more at this point. Fail.

It's easy to phrase any motive as sounding as weak.

Norman - "I took a green serum and it made me crazy and try to make Spider-Man my partner"

Otto - "I tried to make a giant sun and my evil tentacles warped my mind"

Flint - "I am stealing money for my daughter"

Eddie - "I am obsessed with a girl I just had a coffee with and hate Spider-Man for getting me fired from a job I cheated to get"

Dillon sounds like he's been genuinely screwed over and stepped on and ignored all of his life.

I know how you feel. I have honestly come to accept that the villains for the most part will be sympathetic, though I feel like Green Goblin will just be pure evil.

He's probably completely broken down in hate at that point already.
