In the short trailer, the villain tantalises with whispered threats and boasts before greeting the audience with glowing eyes and a leering grin.

Foxx has described his character as a “nobody” who initially idolises Spider-Man, before turning into something altogether more sinister.

In the comic books, Electro is a blue collar worker who gains the ability to manipulate electricity after being struck by lightening.

Foxx recently teased the character’s voice and mannerisms in an entertaining TV appearance.
