Jamie Foxx as Electro in MCU’s Spider-Man 3? Maybe.
Recently, Jamie Foxx leaked that he may be jumping back into the Spider-Man universe as sparky supervillain Electro. Now, we might see him inter the Spider-Verse!

Electro/Jamie Foxx first jumped onto the silver screen in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In this iteration of the role, we might see him in the MCU’s Spider-Man 3 project along with Tom Holland as Peter Parker.
Marvel gave Sony the rights to Spider-Man to Sony in 1985. But we’ve seen Spidey join the MCU in Captain America: Civil War in 2016 and in 5 subsequent films in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.
So even though Foxx originally appeared in Sony’s Spidey-Verse, it’s not out of the question for him to hop over to MCU to play the same role. J.K. Simmons played Daily Bugle editor-in-chief J. Jonah Jameson in both Sony’s Spider-Man trilogy and made a special cameo in the MCU’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. Also… can anyone say Multiverse?
The fact that Feige LITERALLY said that "Spider-Man has the power to cross cinematic universes", there's a Multiverse movie coming and some of y'all still acting like Jamie Foxx's Electro return might be a new version of the character. Like, have you not been paying attention?

A Marvel Multiverse has been in the works for a while (it’s hardly a rumor anymore). Jamie Foxx as Electro works into Far From Home hinted at a Multiverse with Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio. The X-Men are going to have to come from somewhere… and we can’t forget Dr. Strange in the MULTIVERSE of Madness.
