Tom Holland Confirms Jamie Foxx Making MCU Debut In Spider-Man: No Way Home

Spidey will be swinging into theaters on December 17.


Actor Tom Holland has seemingly confirmed that Jamie Foxx will reprise his role as Electro in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Speaking with Total Film Magazine, Holland had an apparent slip of the tongue that name-checked Foxx--by first name only--while discussing the many Spider-Man characters from previous films that will appear in the upcoming sequel, which is due in theaters on December 17.

"Everyone puts their trousers on in the same way in the morning," Holland said. "I'm talking about Alfred and Jamie and those guys. To see Alfred come in, and have to adapt and change to the way that the films are made, but also change director, and also [the fact that] I'm now Spider-Man. It was really interesting to see these actors adapt and change what they were doing to fit the modern era."

Total Film Magazine only pressed Holland for confirmation on whether Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire will be in the next Spider-Man movie, which he has steadily denied. In this new interview, Holland clarified by saying, "People don't believe me that [Maguire and Garfield] are not coming back. But people are going to have to believe me at some point."

Holland, who has a known habit of either inadvertently spoiling the endings or crucial plot points of his own films during interviews or public appearances, apparently missed the other leak in his quote. Foxx has not yet appeared in any trailers for the film.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will be released in theaters on December 17. Holland will also co-star in the upcoming February 2022 adaptation of Sony's popular Uncharted video-game series, which recently released its first trailer.
