Jamie Foxx Hints He Is 'Chasing Spiders' in Spider-Man: No Way Home

There have been a lot of speculations from fans that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will be appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home. While the newly-released second trailer didn't confirm the long-time rumor, it did confirm however that the villains from the past Spider-Man films will be returning. Now, one of them took to social media and hinted that the long-time rumor might be true after all.

In his Instagram post, Jamie Foxx, who is set to return as Electro in Spider-Man: No Way Home, posted a photo of lightning (referring to his villainous role) and wrote the caption, "Light Em up" with the hashtag "#chasingspiders."

Fans immediately took notice of the hashtag since "spider" was written in plural form. A lot of them are wondering if Foxx was hinting that multiple Spider-Men will appear in the film. However, the actor-singer previously wrote a song called "Chasing Spaders" during the making of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 so there is a possibility that he might just be referring to that. But then he could just be being cheeky on the caption and it's a wink to the long-time fan rumor.


At this point, everyone is pretty much aware of the rumor that Maguire and Garfield will be appearing in the film and there is a possibility that Foxx is hinting that "chasing spiders" means he is battling against multiple Spider-Men. Recently, fans also discovered an error in the Brazilian trailer that may have indicated that the two actors were digitally erased from the trailer.

As of the time of this writing, Foxx hasn't taken down his Instagram post. This isn't the first time that he addressed his return as Electro in social media. Last year, after reports came that he is going to appear in the film, he immediately posted his reaction on Instagram in which he revealed that he will have a different look. But hours later, he deleted his post.

The anticipation for the film has been through the roof because of the long-time rumor and fans are hopeful that it is going to happen. We will find out soon if Maguire and Garfield are part of the film whether it's in another trailer or during the release.
