"The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" were left hanging, so to speak. Both films did well, critically and commercially. And yet the series was left unfinished. Helping to give rise to the narrative that they were a failure in both categories.

In reality, events played out differently. Plans for future installments were shelved when a path was cleared for Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Meanwhile, other Spidey-related projects have moved forward outside of the MCU. But some remnants of the "Amazing" Movies might yet continue forward.

Jamie Foxx reportedly reprising his role of Electro

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jamie Foxx is joining the MCU as Electro. Foxx had played the villainous character in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2". Tom Holland has portrayed Spider-Man and his alter ego, Peter Parker, in the MCU.

Reports indicate that Foxx would appear in the next MCU movie that would be headlined by Spider-Man. It would be the third movie where Peter Parker/Spider-Man would be the focal point. To go along with a number of other films where he was part of a larger ensemble.

IGN notes that it's not clear if events would directly follow the events of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2". Or if might some sort of other situation, such as a different universe or altered timeline.

The premise of alternate timelines has already been touched upon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"Spider-Man: Far From Home" did something similar with the character J. Jonah Jameson in a mid-credits scene. J.K. Simmons returned in the role after playing the character in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy.

Since the trilogy's end, Simmons has won an Academy Award, among other accolades.

Jamie Foxx also has an Academy Award to his name for the movie "Ray". The same year that he won, he was also nominated for another Oscar for his work in "Collateral".

Electro was one of the earliest Spider-Man foes

This character Electro is not to be confused with another with an extremely similar name from Marvel.

That being Elektro, a robot. The Electro in question debuted in one of the first issues of the Spider-Man comic books. His main alter ego is Maxwell Dillon. An electrical engineer, Maxell Dillon gained superpowers from a lightning-related accident while working on a power line.

Francine Fye has also been Electro in the past. In her backstory, she'd been a fangirl of supervillains who befriended Maxwell Dillon. To make a long story short, she got his powers after kissing him.

In addition to Spider-Man, Electro has also become a frequent foil of Daredevil. But he's best-known for his association with the web-slinger. The character was also one of the original members of the supervillain teams Sinister Six and Emissaries of Evil.

In 2009, Electro was ranked the 87th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time.
