- Jamie Foxx reprises his role as Electro in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
- In an interview with Marvel.com, the actor said that he had a special tribute to Willem Dafoe on the set.
- He bowed to the actor every time he saw him.
When Jamie Foxx learned about the big comeback of the cast he was going to join in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” he shed tears.
But there was one cast member, in particular, who was shocked to star in the set. So much so that he received a special welcome every time they met: Willem Dafoe.
Foxx told Marvel.com about his actor receiving high fan acclaim for his revenge on Green Goblin/Norman Osborne in the sequel.
“I said, ‘I will bow seven times because I was watching [your movies] Fox added, “For years you’ve been amazing.” It made me crack on the floor.”
“When you’re able to get together for something fun, with people you really respect and admire, it’s just the cherry on top,” he said.
Fox reprized his role as Max Dillon/Elect from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, featuring Andrew Garfield. This time around, the Foxx character is ditching his comb and glasses for a new look that the actor said brings him “prestige.”
Fox added that they have “a whole Spider-Man team on how to make this guy cool.”
Dafoe and Foxx are joined by returning Spider-Man villains Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), Dr. Connors/Lizard (Rhys Ifans), and Flint Marko/Sandman (Thomas Haden Church).
The scenes between the five are some of the movie’s most memorable scenes, as the villains exchange moments when they nearly succeeded in crushing Spider-Man only to realize they were in fact about to die in their own universes.
Foxx wasn’t the only one who had memorable runs with Dafoe on the set of “No Way Home.”
Spider-Man star Tom Holland had his first interaction with Dafoe.
“I kind of bumped into this guy in a cloak and I was like, ‘Watch out, my friend,'” Holland told a crowd at the Regal Theater in Sherman Oaks, California in November. I was like, ‘Oh my God. The imp is here.’
