Two New Electro Stills From The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Jamie Foxx is electric. Unclear if he has a family full of eccentrics

You lucky readers are in for some serious treats in the new issue of Empire (out on Tuesday, December 31), as we preview the 25 biggest films to watch out for in 2014. One of those is The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and the magazine holds an in-depth look at the villain of the piece, Jamie Foxx's Max Dillon.

Here, to give you just a taste of what's inside, are two new images of Electro - but if you are spoiler-averse, one of these images shows a recognisable silhouette standing in front of Electro, so tread carefully and don't look too closely.

The second Spider-film, of course, sees Andrew Garfield's friendly neighbourhood Spidey come up against a range of baddies, just as he's beginning to settle in and enjoy his super-powered life and super-hot girlfriend Gwen Stacey (Emma Stone). The new ne'er-do-wells include Paul Giamatti's Rhino, Foxx's Electro and Dane DeHaan's Harry Osborne (and, it seems from the trailer, Green Goblin).
