‘Spider-Man 3’: Did Jamie Foxx Just Confirm He’s Playing a Different Version of Electro in the MCU?


Spider man: far from home toy with the idea of ​​the Marvel multiverse. Now it looks like the friendly neighborhood webhead is really crucial in that regard. As the title suggests, Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness it will formally integrate the multiverse into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The most recent Spider-Man 3 throwing may support that theory.

Jamie Foxx returns happily as the Electro villain

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the MCU has yet to officially launch Phase 4.. So fans have certainly been working with lower expectations in terms of news. However, no one expected Hollywood Reporter to release the news that Jamie Foxx would be repeating his role as Max Dillon aka Electro in the titleless third part at the MCU Spider-Man film.

Foxx played the villain with electric power in 2014 The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, that sequel was meant to start on the shared universe itself. Sony has unveiled plans for a Sinister Six villain team film after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 they did not meet expectations. But what does throwing Foxx mean for the MCU?

Will Spider-Man 3 open the multiverse or bring a new Electro?

The other big detail in Foxx’s post is the news that Electro will not be blue in the future Spider-Man 3. In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as a result of the accident that powered Max Dillon, he had blue skin. In addition, it was able to fire blue lightning bolts.

If Foxx isn’t really blue in the new movie, that could mean one of two things. Either he still plays the same Electro as last time – albeit with a character redesign – or he actually plays the Max Dillon who lives in the world of Spider-Man by Tom Holland.

After all, JK Simmons appeared in a mediocre view of Spider man: far from home as it appears to be another version of J. Jonah Jameson. To be fair, however, the film does not clearly address whether this is true, as the MCU’s multi-agency rules have not yet been established.
