Jamie Foxx's Spider-Man Instagram Post Sparks Multi-Verse Fan Theory
A now-deleted Instagram post from Jamie Foxx in which he seemingly confirmed his return to the Spider-Man franchise as Electro has also set tongues wagging online for a different reason - they think there could be a Spider-Verse film in the offing, too.
Foxx shared a picture to Instagram in which he all but confirmed he is returning to the role, but in the picture he chose there were multiple Spideys, suggesting that there could be another - live action, perhaps? - Into The Multi-Verse type film in the offing.
As with a lot of these sorts of things, we can't go reading too much into a simple Instagram post, but the fact that it has been deleted suggests either that Foxx has been told not to give away too much, or not to start speculation about films that might not even be happening.
We'll have to wait and see, as ever.
As we've mentioned, if you're a proper enthusiast of Marvel affiliated films, you'll remember that Foxx actually played a bright blue version of Electro back in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise starring Andrew Garfield.
Foxx played the glowing blue nemesis of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but has since been touted for a reprise of that role, this time against Tom Holland's version of the web-slinging superhero.
It's a shock - pun completely intended - because of the relative failure of the previous Spider-Man incarnations.
In fact, that's why the films have been brokered as a remarkable joint deal between Sony and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so why would they want to bring characters in from the lesser franchise?

Because it's Jamie Foxx, presumably.
The third film in this particular strain of Spider-Man films will be directed by Jon Watts, who brought us Homecoming, and Far From Home, and is currently slated for release on November 5 2021.
However, because of the you-know-what that date is expected to change.
Alongside Holland - and presumably Foxx - we'll see stars such as Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, and Tony Revolori returning, and Marvel's own head honcho Kevin Feige will produce alongside Amy Pascal.
We have no idea what is going to take place in the film - multi-verse or not - but this latest speculation isn't the first time the varying Spidey worlds have interacted.
For example, J.K. Simmons is down to play newspaper editor J. Jonah Jameson in this next film, reprising a role from the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy.
After all that, why not a world-skipping, all-encompassing multi-verse film, right?
