    Spider-Man 3: Jamie Foxx Teases New Appearance for Electro 

    Spider-Man 3: Jamie Foxx Teases New Appearance for Electro A day after the news broke out about Jamie Foxx’s potential return as Electro, the Academy Award-winning actor has confirmed (in a now deleted Instagram post) that he has indeed signed on to star opposite Tom Holland in Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ highly-anticipated third Spider-Man MCU film. In his post which you can check out below (via Twitter), Foxx’s also teased that his villain character will be returning with a new appearance. Because of this, fans are speculating if he will either play a different iteration of the character, or if it will be the same one as Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 leading the film into the multiverse realm. Interestingly, the deleted post also came with Spider-Man fan art, featuring Tobey Maguire, Garfield and Holland’s versions of the friendly-neighbor-hood hero!

Given the ending of Far From Home however, any number of his rogues gallery are likely eager for a fight. The third installment to the MCU’s Spider-Man films will also feature the return of Zendaya (Euphoria, Dune) as MJ. Holland’s Spider-Man is also set to appear in another Marvel Studios film per the new agreement. While most of the original series cast are set to return for the threequel, Foxx’s casting further blurs the lines across Sony’s three webslinging franchises, with the previous installment bringing back J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson from Sam Raimi’s trilogy and the studio’s Sony Universe of Marvel Characters led by Venom expected to crossover into the Marvel Cinematic Universe series soon. Originally scheduled for a July 16, 2021 release, the film was first pushed back to November 5 and will now bow on December 17. The untitled third installment’s previous release date was recently given to Uncharted, with Holland revealing in an Instagram video that production on the webslinging title should begin around February 2021 after the conclusion of the filming for Nathan Drake’s long-awaited big-screen debut.

Should these films interact with the MCU and Tom Holland, it remains to be seen, but the door seems open.
