As the Smiths once sang, "Is it really so strange?"
In one of the most bizarre surprise casting selections, Jamie Foxx will reprise his role as Electro in Marvel Studios' third Spider-Man film. Via The Hollywood Reporter, Foxx is in final negotiations for the movie.
Whether Foxx is playing the same version of Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 remains to be seen. In May, I scooped that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield from Sony's previous Spider-Man movies will meet the current web slinger Tom Holland in a live-action Spider-Verse film. There were such discussions and this hints at such a direction. Most likely, too, Electro will help form the Sinister Six.
