A few months ago there were rumours that Jamie Foxx was up for a role in the X-Men Marvel movies.
Could this have been what those rumours were about? Probably.
Anyway, The Hollywood Reporter dropped the bombshell news yesterday night that Jamie Foxx would be returning as Electro in Spider-Man 3.
He played the role in the God awful The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which starred Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man.
It seems like he’s going to get to have a second crack at the Marvel villain in the third Tom Holland Spider-Man movie.
This is pretty unprecedented, yet were are seeing actors returning to roles they played in the past.
There’s Michael Keaton playing Batman again in The Flash movie.
There’s Ben Affleck who’s also playing Batman again, also in The Flash movie.
Maybe Marvel is now taking a leaf out of DC Comics and Warner Bros. Pictures’ book?
Jamie Foxx is going to making a comeback as Electro In Spider-Man 3
Jamie Foxx was last seen in the Netflix superpowers movie, Power.
He was pretty good in it, yet the movie itself was really quite dull.
That said, he’s got a real taste for the comic book movies, and it sounds like he’s looking forward to getting a second chance at playing Electro.
I do have to say that I thought he was pretty terrible in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
However, that was all down to poor writing and even worse direction.
I think with Marvel Studios actually onboard, Foxx will be in much safer and more reliable hands this time around.
What do you make of this news?
Are you looking forward to seeing Jamie Foxx play Electro again in Spider-Man 3?
