Jamie Foxx was captured filming scenes on the set of Marvel’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Times Square on Monday. In the film, Foxx plays Max Dillon, an electrical engineer who becomes super-villain Electro after being struck by lightning while working on a powerline and being left with the ability to control electricity.

As far as his storyline goes, the actor shared insight into his character. “He’s cutting out Spider-Man’s face and pasting it on all his boards… then everything goes bad with his mom,” says Foxx. “She doesn’t remember his birthday. He has something tragic happen and, when it turns on, he lights it up.”

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in theaters on May 2, 2014.
