Behind the scenes
After Foxx was confirmed for the role of Electro, he stated to Entertainment Tonight that he enjoys the character, saying, "I met with the director, Marc Webb, I met with Andrew Garfield, and we talked. …I think Electro will be an exciting character to play because he's a… genius electrician-type person, and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world, and the next thing you know, he turns it on".
Jamie Foxx is one of the few actors to reprise his role in a different film franchiser. He will reprise his role as Max Dillon/Electro in the Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios production Spider-Man: No Way Home.
