Letting the cat out of the bag sooner than planned is something Jamie Foxx appears to have a mastery in. Back in October 2020, long before Marvel Studios officially confirmed his inclusion as Max Dillon/Electro in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home, Foxx prematurely announced the same on Instagram only to delete it later. And this time, while Sony Pictures, Marvel Studios, Tom Holland, etc are busy denying that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s respective web slingers are also part of the film, Foxx has gone ahead and seemingly confirmed the same in an Instagram post. 

Jamie Foxx’s recent post on Instagram is a picture of a stormy sky with lightning raging across it. While the picture is teasing the arrival of his Electro, whom we last saw in 2014’s The Amazing Spiderman 2, his caption includes “#chasing spiders.” Though it is being vehemently stressed that Spider-Man: No Way Home only includes Tom Holland as the friendly neighborhood Spidey, Foxx’s use of “spiders” seems to confirm that there will be more than one Spider-Man in the film. Check out the post below:

This is not the first time when Jamie Foxx has inadvertently exposed the tightly wrapped secrets of Spider-Man: No Way Home. In October 2020, when he made the announcement that he would be making a comeback as the villain Electro in the upcoming film, he shared an image of three figures dressed in Spider-Man suits and staring at an electrical storm brewing above the city skyline. This was one of the earliest “revelations” from the third Spider-Man film after which Sony and Marvel have been busy trying to put the lid back on the growing list of leaks about the film’s plot.

For now, the only officially confirmed storyline is that Spider-Man: No Way Home takes place exactly after the events of Spider-Man: Far Away from Home. At the end of the second film, Peter Parker’s identity was exposed by Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). Thus, Peter will approach Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to make everyone magically forget that he is Spider-Man. But the spell will backfire and tear the multiverse apart, thus allowing villains like William Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman, and Rhys Ifans as Lizard from alternate realities to enter the Earth in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). 

The recently released trailer of Spider-Man: No Way Home only confirms that Peter, MJ (Zendaya), Ned (Jacob Batalon), and Strange will be joining forces to capture the villains. But countless plausible leaks from the sets of the film have teased the possibility that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will be joined by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s versions of the superhero. It has also been reported that the trio will team up to bring down the villains from their respective universes and in the process, someone close to Holland’s Peter will die. But unless Jamie Foxx is planning to confirm more details about the storyline on social media, we will have to wait until the film debuts in theatres on December 17, 2021.
