Leave it to an aspiring kid supervillain to steal the show from Spider-Man himself. At Thursday's New York premiere of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Jamie Foxx's 4-year-old daughter, Annalise, did just that when she arrived sporting a full face of blue Electro makeup. The premiere scene-stealer, dressed in all black with pigtails and the baddie's signature electric-blue face, arrived in support of her movie-star dad.
According to Foxx, Annalise has been a Spidey super-fan long before she learned her dad was going to be a part of the Marvel movie. For her third birthday, Annalise requested a Spider-Man-themed affair, complete with an inflatable Spidey bouncing castle. As it happened, Foxx received the phone call that he'd landed the Electro role during the party, but waited to give his daughter the news at a later time, in a more exciting way.
"So I take her out [on set] where they do all the makeup," Foxx told News Corp Australia. "She's like, 'It's Spider-Man!' And I said, 'Daddy's going to be in "Spider-Man,"' and she says, 'No, Daddy, there’s already a Spider-Man. What are you going to do?'"
Later, after Annalise had time to wrap her head around her dad's gig, she was ready to see him square off against the web-slinger.
"My daughter is like, 'Spider-Man is going to whoop your butt, right? Spider-Man gets to kick your butt?'" Foxx told the U.K.'s Sun newspaper. "And I am like, 'Yeah, he gets to kick my butt a little bit.'"
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" opens nationwide May 2. Come back to Yahoo Movies on Tuesday, April 29 at 5p.m. PST/ 8p.m. EST for a Hans Zimmer performance with special guests Pharrell and Alicia Keys.
