For reasons unknown, Jamie Foxx is returning to the Spider-Man world as the character he played in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Electro for the MCU’s Spider-Man 3.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, and for the life of me, I don’t know why anyone at Sony, Disney or Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige thought this was a good idea.
On the other hand, for Foxx this is a great move, he’s able to redeem himself and earn a lot of money.
The biggest question is, why? Why connect yourself to a terrible movie (Sony’s fault, not Andrew Garfield or Emma Stone) where Electro was an awful villain. I left my local cinema with a headache that’s how bad of an experience TASM2 was for me.
It makes sense this MCU Spidey is utterly awful as well.
Now that’s not the fault of Tom Holland, who is a terrific actor, he continues to get terrible scripts and direction. Which is way Homecoming and even more so with Far From Home are the worst Spider-Man movies made.
Furthermore, no the billion-dollar box office is not a reason for the equality, watch this Hi-Top film Youtube video to learn why mainly Far From Home is crap.
The day it returns fully in Sony’s hands will be a day I’ll be swing from house to house.
As to how this could be happening, I don’t see it being a multiverse issue (despite the excitement on social media) because Spider-Man 3 is a random movie to progress to the multiverse. While continuing the storyline, they introduced with the end credits of Far From Home revealing the Skrulls are still on Earth.
Or are we supposed to forget about that?
If anything with Michael Keaton’s Vulture meeting Michael Mando’s Scorpion in Homecoming, then Mysterio played by Jake Gyllenhaal in Far From Home and now this, it seems like they’re building towards a Sinister Six.
The thing to look forward to is how does Foxx’s Electro connect to Tony Stark with my favourite predict is Electro was Stark’s electrician.
