Did Actor Jamie Foxx Just Spoil The Plot To Spider-Man 3?!? -SPOILERS-

Did Actor Jamie Foxx Just Spoil The Plot To Spider-Man 3?!? -SPOILERS-


Jay Cochran - October 05, 2020
Last week word came down that actor Jamie Foxx would be reprising his role as Electro for the next Tom Holland Spider-Man movie. As you likely know, Foxx first played the electrified Spider-villain in the Andrew Garfield-The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

From the original report it was not clear if Foxx would actually be portraying the same version of Electro from AS2, or be playing an entirely new version, but the news definitely seemed to open up the possibilities of seeing some kind of Multiverse theme come into play, where characters from previous Spider-Man movies might cross-over into the Tom Holland universe. After all we had already seen actor J.K. Simmons reprise his role of J. Jonah Jameson at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Well now word is that Foxx himself late last week posted on his personal Instagram account this image with this caption:

"Tell Spidey let's run it back!" Foxx wrote on Instagram along with an image featuring his version of Electro in the sky over New York City as three different Spider-Men look on. "Super excited to be part of the new Marvel Spider-Man new installment [sic]. Can't wait for y'all to check out the new one." Foxx went onto say that this new version of Electro "won't be blue," but will be "badass."



The image shows three different versions of Spider-Man looking up at an electrified sky with Foxx's Electro character seen in the clouds. The most obvious assumption here is that the three Spider-Man characters are Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland. Foxx also says Electro won't be blue anymore, which makes us think he will now be yellow, the color he is in the comics.

I personally did not see the original Foxx post, and word is that it was quickly deleted. It's hard to believe Foxx would put up such an image without the studio's permission, which we should note hasn't even officially confirmed Foxx will be in Spider-Man 3 yet. We have however seen this tactic to build up hype used by Sony with the previous Spider-Man movies. You may recall how Holland himself "accidentally" posted images for what appeared to be Hydro Man in the last movie on his personal social media.

Sony has already dabbled in the Marvel multiverse thanks to their animated hit Into The Spider-Verse, which I suppose could actually end up tying into the live-action movies if you think about it, and if they really wanted to get creative. We also know based on the title of the next Doctor Strange movie, which is called Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, that the MCU as a whole will be diving more into the whole Multiverse theme, a concept that has often been used in the comics and was most notable used onscreen during Avengers: Endgame.

Whether the third Spider-Man movie ends up playing a major role in the MCU as a whole or not is really not clear at this time, but I think if fans get to see Holland, Garfield and Maguire all on screen together, that alone will be worth the price of admission.

Lot of reports that we will be getting some information in December, at least we might get a synopsis or title

Personally, I'd love to see Sony establish a new Spider-franchisetotally separate from Disney's. Different story, different Spider-Man, the whole nine yards. No magic techno-suits, no Iron Man bromance, no genius school.

I see no point in this and really if anything, just an avenue to disaster. Just concentrate on building up Spider-Man's background and flesh out his own stories first.

Yeah, Spidey's identity being exposed and wanted for the murder of Mysterio is plenty for a movie, we don't need it sidelined by Into the Live Action Spiderverse

DC is bringing Keaton into Batman Role for Flash. And knowing how reactionary Disney was in the past with h Civil War right after BvS announcement,It only makes sense Marvel will try to attempt to bring Tobey and Andrew, theres whole generation that grew up on Sam Raimis Spider-Man trilogy, Andrew Garfield movies also have their fans mostly due to organic chemistry Emma Stone and Garfield portrayed in the movie. So theres more than one bough fan base and recognition to make it popular.I dont think its crazy madness or even bad. Seeing them back would be amazingif its done right, and it can it can be disappointingand heartbreaking if its done wrong.Both Tobey and Andrew deserve this chance because they were fired without hesitation by Sonywhen it was really Sonysexecsfault movies suffered and sucked. So with right story this can be awesome but I think at this point we need small clues and teases and maybe do real spider verse movie in 4,5 or even 6th movie as the conclusiveend of second trilogy for Holland.

I think we all would but if they're gonna get silly with it might as well go all out. Of course Nicholas Hammond is 70 so he'd have to play retired spidey or something. i'm hoping these rumors amount to just quick cameos rather than Maguire and Garfield being integral to the plot, anyhow.

He could play spider ben. Either versions

I really wish Disney/Marvel can get spider-man's licence out of Sony's hands...this is madness

agreed I want nothing, I think it's going to be a bad mistep to make a multiverse movie with Toby and Andrew's Spider-Men being involved because of a multiverse.
