Jamie Foxx is coming back as Electro! In news that turned our expectations of the movie on their head, we learned this week that the star is returning as the supervillain in Spider-Man 3 after playing him back in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The jury is still out on whether Foxx is portraying the same Electro or an alternate MCU version, but one thing we do know is that he won’t be blue this time. The actor himself confirmed this in a now-deleted Instagram post.
Fan artists have run with this tidbit, then, and have come up with their own ideas for how Foxx could look this time around as Max Dillon. First of all, BossLogic has developed the concept of Foxx’s Electro wearing some kind of containment suit for his electrical powers, which acts as an update of the comic book character’s lightning-themed helmet.
Meanwhile, ApexForm has mocked up this epic poster. The artist has gone in the opposite direction of BossLogic and has ditched any kind of helmet. Instead, he’s given Foxx a black outfit which features the lightning bolt insignia that the comics character wears. The poster captures Electro beating Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in battle.

After the news came out, Foxx went on social media to share some fan art of his own – an intriguing piece that featured his Electro coming up against not just Holland’s webslinger, but Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, as well. We can read all sorts of things into the fact that he soon took down the post, with many theorizing that he’s actually given away that Spider-Man 3 is a secret Spider-Verse movie. Something that various reports are corroborating.
Spider-Man 3 is expected to start shooting later this fall, so pay attention for further updates. It hits theaters on December 17th, 2021.
