Spider-Man’s most dashing and electrifying villain is Electro. Sony Pictures rumored that they will develop a solo movie of Electro who was played by Jamie Foxx in both The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Origin of Electro
Electro or Max Dillon was first seen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The movie seemed to end on a negative note because of its messy plot but the character of Electro was amazing. Max Dillon thought that Spider-Man is a black man as revealed in the climax of Spider-Man: No Way Home. He works at Oscorp and didn’t have friends. On his birthday he accidentally fell into the pool full of electric eels and he turned into the great supervillain Electro.
As fans know that Jamie Foxx reprised his role again as Electro in Spider-Man: No Way Home besides other iconic villains like Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, and Lizard. Fans were excited to see him again after 7 years on the big screen and Jamie Foxx was too. He was totally different from the earlier iteration of Electro which we have seen in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He was not blue anymore as he looks more comic accurate in Spider-Man No Way Home in the yellow color as he looks more stable and cool by taking the Arc Reactor from Stark’s Fabricator. His performance was electrifying in the movie as we see him 7 years after his epic battle with Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man. But at last, they become friends.

Sony’s Spider-Man villain solo movie concept.
It is also not impossible that Sony can’t make its own Electro spin-off film cause Sony always tries to make Spider-Man’s villains solo as they make two Venom movies starring Tom Hardy, Morbius starring Jared Leto as the living vampire (April 1, 2022) and Kraven The Hunter starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson ( January 2023). So it will be good to see Jamie Foxx return again on the big screen to do his own solo movie Electro soon.
What did Jamie Foxx say?
Jamie Foxx during the Spider-Man: No Way Home Villain’s conversation at CCPX said, “I’m happy we got a brand new start, a brand new look. The blue, when we did it the first time, it was — look. Look, man, I didn’t care, I was just happy to be in [Spider-Man], But with this, this ‘new new,’ it’s fly. The homies are like, ‘We get you now.’ When I was blue, they still rolled with me, but with this one, it just feels more comfortable.”
As this is a rumor but it is exciting to know about a supervillain in a heroic manner. With this movie of Electro we can also see some new characters also we can know better about Electro, this movie can also reveal some unknown powers of Electro, etc. As this is a rumor but we all are excited to watch it.
