I think that's an error. Had to look it up.
Says his powers are just flight and electricity.

You may be right, and if so I think that is a mistake. Like you, I think he should have been a smart-ass, arrogant, sob[that's more Foxx characterization, quick, witty, hustler....not necessarily a thug, but more like a regular blue collar guy with some street background(know what I'm saying)] Make him complete geek/nerd, with a comb-over, imo, is not exactly what I see Foxx doing well. I look at the previews of him as President in "White House Down" playing an out of touch politician, and it just don't look interesting, or the type of character one expect from Foxx....this persona of Max Dillon looks the same...out of touch, then miraculously a bad-ass....arrr, typical. I was hoping, like you, Max would be more street wise then what he apparently is in this film.

i think electro will have a slow origin, learning who max is through out, his obsession with spidey, and rhino is just there to keep spidey busy during the middle of the film, give some action scenes

i don't think we will get loads of fights with electro, 2 at the very least... maybe, i wouldn't be surprised if its all a build up to a big battle at the end with electro

When I think of Foxx's character Max in Collateral that's how I think he will portray Max Dillon, but a little bit differently.

Maybe a tiny bit more..troubled I'd say. I don't think the character he played in Collateral would have all and I mean ALL those cut outs of Spidey in his room. But that's a good comparison.

It's a little deeper than that. His basic powers are Flight and control over Electricity, but he gains further abilities when he approaches his maximum power levels. Also, he's had various power upgrades in the comics.

Here's the wiki description:

Quote:

An unusually configured magnetic field was created when Dillon was struck by lightning while holding live, high-tension wires and a wound reel of one-inch cable, granting him superhuman powers. Electro can generate massive quantities of electricity, theoretically up to approximately one million volts. He can employ this electrostatic energy as lightning arcs from his fingertips, and his maximum charge is more than enough to kill a normal human.

When his body is charged to high levels, he becomes superhumanly strong and fast. He can also glide over power lines by using the electricity contained therein for propulsion, and he has on occasion been shown to actually ride on lightning bolts. During a stint in prison, Doctor Octopus gave him the ideas of ionizing metals and sparking the petroleum in the fuel tank of a vehicle as a way to generate explosions. He can charge himself up to make himself more powerful. He can also absorb the energy of electrical equipment such as a power plant to increase his powers further.

In New Avengers, he was shown to fly and manipulate large amounts of electricity and machinery, when he freed all the prisoners at Rykers (although, due to the city-wide blackout preceding the event, he probably absorbed a great deal of energy beforehand).

An experimental procedure heightened his powers, allowing Electro to store and absorb a seemingly limitless amount of electricity. He also seemed to gain the power over magnetism to a certain degree, allowing him to manipulate magnetic fields and move objects in a manner similar to that of Magneto, and could overcome his old weakness to water by using the electromagnetic fields around him to vaporize water before it could touch him. He made Spider-Man beg by stimulating the bioelectric currents in his brain, and was able to defeat Nate Grey by manipulating said currents in Nate's brain to turn his own psionic powers against him.

Electro can override any electrically powered device and manipulate it according to his mental commands.
By using an external electrical power source to recharge his body's energy reserves, Electro could expend electricity indefinitely without diminishing his personal reserves. When he is fully charged, Electro is extremely sensitive to anything that may "short circuit" him, such as water.
Electro propels himself along magnetic lines of force in objects that have great electrical potential, such as high-tension electrical lines. He can also create electrostatic bridges to traverse upon, at the cost of a great expenditure of energy.

During the events of the storyline "The Gauntlet", Electro became a living artificial thunderbolt, allowing him to travel through electrical appliances such as going through a light bulb and exiting through any other electronic device connected to the power source.[volume & issue needed] He was also able to transmit himself over Spider-Man's web.[volume & issue needed]

Yeah, I can't imagine Rhino will have a huge role in the film. I think the first half will be Peter dealing with taking out thugs, one of them being Rhino, and sending them to Ravencroft. At some point we see him meet Mary Jane, and later Harry Osborn; then this eventually leads him to Norman.

Maybe Peter uses Harry to get more information about his parents, why they left, and why Peter was the only successful cross-species experiment.

My question is... where does Electro fit into all of this? We see Peter saving him at some point in the middle of the street, so perhaps that was during one of the fight scenes with Rhino. Here Max Dillon is an Oscorp employee, so what could you guys make of it?

Ah I knew it. I knew there was superhuman strength involved somewhere 'cause I've seen many panels of hand-to-hand combat with him and Spidey. Just didn't know the reason behind that. Thanks

With the way you described Rhino, do you mind him being that small of a role? If he is, wouldn't that be a good thing and stop the worries of so many people saying that this is the next "Spider-Man 3" with "all the villains" jumbled in this movie?
I think what's gonna happen for Rhino is something to the effect of what you made his role sound like. (In terms of how small it is.)

I would be okay with him having a really small role. Maybe show him in 1-2 fight scenes max. Electro is the main villain and that needs to be made clear.

Though I doubt it will be like Spider-Man 3, since it won't have three main villains.

Spider-Man 3's problem wasn't having too many villains. It was how poorly the runtime of the movie was wasted on unnecessary things, like cooking, dancing, singing, two love triangles and other useless stuff that didn't serve to push the story forward.

And I think you guys are kidding yourselves if you think Rhino will be a small time villain in this movie. First, I think it'd be a disrespect to the villain. Second, they wouldn't waste Paul's talent on a few minute's appearance.

and fans of IM3 would have said the same of Ben Kingsley

I didn't watch it.
Despite knowing the twist, was he a small presence in the movie? Was he a villain that appeared in one scene then was gone for the whole movie?

It also had 3 main villains that had three seperate stories, all of which didn't tie into the main plot.

He was the main presence through the first half

But seriously, just because Paul Giamatti is a talented actor doesn't automatically mean that his part will be big. Maybe Webb wanted to get the best out of the little time Rhino has in the film

Also Rhino doesn't really need that much time in a movie. His shtick is that he rampages, and he (generally) isn't that deep of a character. 2 action scenes, one with Aleksei and one with him as Rhino, is quite enough. I don't understand how that'd be disrespectful to the character

Yeah, it doesn't mean his part will be big, but knowing that Webb is a great director of actors and wants to get the max of each of them, I consider it'd be naive to think Rhino would be wasted after a simple scene.

2 action scenes doesn't mean little, either. Iron Monger had one and was all it needed. It depends on how it's done. I'm not counting runtime, but the impact it has.

I was thinking about something:

We kinda got the iconic comic book look with the lizard, especially when he wore the lab coat in a few scenes of TASM.

Would it be really that far fetched to let Electro have a modified version of his starfish mask?? Of course I'm not talking about an actual mask. But what if - say at the final battle - there's a scene where the electricity bursts out of his eyes/face, forming a star... only for a few seconds. It would be a great nod to his comic suit.

What do you think?
