Jamie Foxx will be the villain Electro in the new Spider-Man 3. The actor had previously played the character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
In cinecomics, just like in nature, nothing is created and nothing is destroyed. Proof of this is the unexpected return of Jamie Foxx in the role of Electro, villain and nemesis of Spider-Man. The peculiar thing, however, is that a new battle between the superhero in the red and blue costume and the monster capable of absorbing, generating and throwing electricity will take place in the next Spider-Man with protagonist Tom Holland. But how? – you will say. But Foxx he had not played the role in another saga, that of The Amazing Spider-Man? Of course yes, so much so that we have the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man it was called The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – The Power of Electro.
The reason for this “borrowing”, which The Hollywood Reporter informs us, was not motivated by either Marvel Studios or Sony, but, if you remember well, it was precisely the poor success of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (with a worldwide gross of 708.9 million dollars) to push Sony to start a new franchise with Marvel starring the same character.
Of Spider-Man 3, we do not know much, except that there will be once again behind the camera Jon Watts and that, together with Holland, they will come back Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon e Tony Revolori. They will be producing again Kevin Feige e Amy Pascal.
The entrance of Foxx in the film that should be released on November 5, 2021 and go into production in the fall in Atlanta, it does not represent a unicum in the Spider Verse: already in Spider-Man: Far From Home some had been borrowed from a “sister” series. Let’s talk about the J.Jonah Jameson interpreted by J.K. Simmons in the trilogy of Sam Raimi. Its appearance, if you remember well, was very short in the cinecomic of 2019, and those who did not sit and watch the credits, sensationally lost it.
