Awful Jamie Foxx Electro Pics Provide Too Many Options for Outhouse Article

Outhouse writers are unable to decide which direction to take when making fun of the latest set pics of a Jamie Foxx as a sickly blue Elctro in Amazing Spider-Man 2.



Source: The Daily Mail

The first pics of Jamie Foxx (who is now somehow a serious actor BTW) as villain Electro in Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit the web yesterday, and man, are they awful. For some reason, Fox is painted blue with veins all over his face and black, snakelike eyes. The pics caused an uproar in The Outhouse Newsroom as the site's bloggers raced to come up with ridiculous headlines for the pictures.

"Jamie Foxx Turns Into Fish, Still Playing Electro in Spider-Man 2," suggested Webmaster Jude Terror.

"Jamie Foxx Not Hot Enough to Play Electro," countered Senior Media Correspondent Royal Nonesuch, who explained that the headline was a satirical take on the sexist comments ignorant fanboys usually make whenever a female character is cast in a geek movie. "It's a satirical take on the sexist comments ignorant fanboys usually make whenever a female character is cast in a geek movie."

"Jamie Foxx Holds Breath Until He Turns Blue Waiting to Play Villain That Doesn't Suck," said Lead Video Game Reporter Xaraan, who was so inspired by the pictures awfulness that he came up with two headlines. "Actor Showed Up to Shoot Avatar 2 Only to Find Out He Was Shooting Spider-Man 2!"

"Jamie Foxx Locked in Freezer Overnight!" shouted star reporter ThanosCopter, who everyone had thought was sleeping off a crystal meth binge in the corner. He promptly passed out again in a puddle of his own vomit.

"Next Twilight Movie Takes on Darker Tone," offered legitimate cartoon news source Zechs before GHERU chimed in with "Twist Ending to M. Night Shyamalan's Smurfs Reboot Revealed!"

"Scoop! Margaret Thatcher's Corpse to Play Voldemort in Harry Potter Porn Parody!" was the cigar chomping ex-dictator El Presidente's contribution.

"First Jamie Foxx Electro Pics Hit the Web?" squeaked the straight-laced Sdsichero before being booed out of the newsroom.

"COSTUME SUCK!" added Frankenstein, Former Agent of S.H.A.D.E., in perhaps the most apropos possible headline.

In the end, we simply couldn't decide which direction to go in, so we decided to leave it up to you, dear readers. What do you think the headline for our Jamie Foxx Spider-Man 2 Electro pics article should be?

Doesn't look to bad, more in line with the Ultimate Version of the character. I really didn't expect them to go with the green suit with the giant yellow starfish on his face, so I can live with this.

Because I have yet to see a superhero based movie where any villains let alone heroes had costumes that were replicas of the costumes they wear in the comics. Just like Wolverines mask wouldn't translate well in live action Electo's starfish face would just look stupid.

Electro's comic look is stupid.

I liked the Ultimate look more. Or the one in the first arc of bendis' New Avengers run, where he just has the bolts on his face.

Despite Jude dragging my good name through the mud, I actually like the look and I'm pretty interested to see what it looks like in the movie.

Maybe he hasn't seen those yet?

Or:

Dredd
X-Men First Class
Hellboy
The Phantom
Men in Black
Blade (... WAIT, does Blade count? I can't really remember his modern appearances, before the first movie)
