Jamie Foxx probably looked at his return as Max Dillon (Electro) as a way to show everyone what could have been. He more than redeemed himself. No more insecure Electro. He stood up for himself and spoke out about what he wanted. This is the kind of villain we should have gotten in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Had we received this version, Andrew Garfield may have been Peter Parker in one more movie.
The only negative thing that could be said about Jamie Foxx’s performance is that we may not see him as Electro again. Foxx is one of the best actors alive and his Electro could have ended up being one of the greatest recurring villains in comic book history.
7. The Lizard
There really isn’t much to say about the Lizard. He was fun and creepy whenever he was on screen. Other than that, he was just okay. He didn’t add much to the movie. Then again, when you’re next to Green Goblin, Electro, and Doc Ock, it’s not easy to stand-out.
Rhys Ifans did what he was asked to do. It just wasn’t enough to make the Lizard a more than average character. Other than a few lines while being in captivity, the Lizard just wasn’t memorable.
