Jamie Foxx Returning as Electro for SPIDER-MAN 3 For Reasons I Can’t Begin to Understand

The Hollywood Reporter:

The next Spider-Man movie is getting a major jolt.

Jamie Foxx, who played classic Spidey villain Electro in the Andrew Garfield-starring The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is in final talks to reprise the role for the latest Spider-Man installment, starring Tom Holland and being made by Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.

I’m dumbfounded by this.

Not necessarily because of the fact that Electro is coming back — I mean, these are comic book movies, they can do whatever — but with the rancid stink of the original performance, an almost Batman Forever-esq depiction of the character (seriously, look at the parallels between Foxx in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Carrey’s Riddler in Batman Forever), I can’t even imagine why they’d want to add this massive weight to drag down a movie from the jump.
