Exclusive: Jamie Foxx Excited To Be Spider-Man’s “Formidable Opponent”
Woohoo, the first trailer for the Amazing Spider-Man 2 has finally made its debut.
In the intense three minute teaser, the very first words spoken are of Spidey himself. “Everyday I wake up knowing that the more people I try to save, more enemies I will make and it’s just a matter of time before I face those with more power that I can overcome,” Andrew Garfield says in a voice over.
The clip shows Spider-Man/Peter Parker web-slinging between skyscrapers in efforts to save the world, but the superhero will soon learn great conflict lies ahead when the emergence of Electro, played by Jamie Foxx threatens the city.
In an exclusive interview with Foxx during the 13th annual Harold & Carole Pump Foundation Gala in August, the actor raved about starring in the action flick.
“To be a part of Spider-Man is another surreal moment,” he told HipHollywood. “Working with Andrew Garfield, working with Marc Webb and taking on a character that’s been around for a long time and really being able to act it out and make Electro really someone who is a formidable opponent for Spider-Man.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014.
