Jamie Foxx power up!
Over on the Pacific, the country's arguably biggest geek event is in full swing right now. That event is San Diego Comic-Con International. Its the annual event which allows people to dress up as their favorite superhero/supervillain/pop culture icon and discuss comics, upcoming movies, books, etc. Meet actors and comic writers, and the like. To attend San Diego Comic-Con is definitely a to do on my bucket list!
One of the events biggest draws in recent years has been looking at a selection of upcoming movies. One of the movies featured this year is "Amazing Spiderman 2." The video below shows how Jamie Foxx gets his powers and becomes the supervillain Electro.
I suppose the video is kind of cool. However, I am not completely sold on the sequel. I had hesitations about the first "Amazing Spiderman" entry. And I kind of find it annoying that such huge A-Listers are playing two legendary Marvel villains. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the Joel Schumaker days and his "Batman Forever" and "Batman & Robin" catastrophe. But I am going to see this movie with an open mind and open heart, just because I love Spiderman.
Let me know what you thought.
