Musician and actor Jamie Foxx is set to light up the screen once again in his former role of Electro. The talented performer originated the film incarnation of Electro in the 2014 installment of the second Spider-Man film, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” The villainous Electro character made his debut back in 1964 and was previously an employee of an electric company. He was struck by lightning while in the process of working on a power line and became a human capacitor of electricity.

The upcoming third installment of the Spider-Man film franchise is slated to be released November 5, 2021, and it appears that Jamie Foxx‘s character won’t be the only one to return the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Reportedly, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya, and Tony Revolori are all slated to reprise their respective former roles of Aunt May, Michelle “MJ” Jones, and Flash Thompson in the popular franchise’s latest film.
