Jamie Foxx as Electro in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Behind-the-scenes footage from the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray editions of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 shows how Jamie Foxx became Electro.

After time-lapse footage and narration from makeup artist Howard Berger reveals how the villain's makeup was completed, Foxx talks about how his physical transformation helped him get into character.

"When they crafted the Electro makeup, it was so much fine detail that they paid attention to — just that blue, it just blew everybody's mind. … Once I got into that blue, even my voice changed," the actor says.

He's then shown in behind-the-scenes shots as Electro.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to be released on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday.
