In the trailer above, every Marvel fan can see the electrifying return of Jaime Foxx’s Electro, one of the five villains going against Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021).

IndieWire Tweeted:

They’re all back! Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, plus the Lizard and Sandman. Watch the official #SpiderManNoWayHome

For over a year, rumors suggested that Foxx would reprise his shocking villain in No Way Home, but the first look at his new Electro in the MCU is finally here.

It was tough avoiding leaked images of Foxx’s Electro, but the image above shows how Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige paid homage to the original iteration of Electro.

Ditching the blue from Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), Jaime Foxx is representing Electro in his natural yellow form — even donning the iconic star on his face (a physical trait of the iconic character from the comics).

Not only does Electro make his MCU debut in the trailer, but also Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman character and Rhys Ifans’ Lizard from alternate universes.

One Marvel fan pointed out:

REDESIGNING ELECTRO HAS TO BE ONE OF MARVEL’S BEST CREATIVE DECISIONS

The cherry on top was hearing so much of Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin speaking to Peter Parker, obviously persuading the young superhero/Avenger to release him, Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, and the rest of the iconic characters from Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) mystic prison.
