A new promo for Spider-Man: No Way Home may have given away a huge reveal involving Jamie Foxx’s Electro. Some eagle-eyed MCU fans are convinced The Amazing Spider-Man 2 supervillain gets an upgrade after getting his hands on a particular Iron Man suit tech, the arc reactor.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is nearing its theatrical release so Sony Pictures & Marvel Studios are sounding off with more new TV spots targeting home viewing audiences. One such teaser caught fans’ attention after it shows a glimpse of Foxx’s Electro charging up with the help of what seems like an arc reactor.
New Spider-Man: No Way Home promo shows Electro using Iron Man’s arc reactor, say fans
Some early rumors circulating on social media indicated that Electro would use an arc reactor to get a better grip over his electrifying abilities. A closer look suggests Electro is tapping his abilities via an exoskeleton suit. Still, there is no official confirmation yet that the villain gets the arc reactor but it hasn’t stopped fans from discussing the possible theory. Readers can check out the tweets below.

OK so folks are already noticing that Electro is wearing an Arc Reactor in the #SpiderManNoWayHome trailer. And some are noticing it's specifically from Iron Man 2.
That's not all that looks like it was from Iron Man 2.

One Marvel fan also pointed out that Electro had a similar tech like arc reactor in Marvel comics to enhance his ability.
I hope people don’t start complaining about electro using an arc reactor considering he had similar tech in the earlier comics pic.twitter.com/L51OxkKHBO

You know how in Ragnarok, Odin tells Thor that he's always had his thunder powers but Mjolnir was to help him control them? Maybe that is a similar case with Electro in No Way Home. He's always had the electric powers but the Arc Reactor is to help him control and elevate them.

Some are already making up theories connecting Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to the MCU storyline.
Electro survives the events of TASM 2. Tony Stark decides to help Max by containing his powers using an arc reactor, explaining his new look. Electro then kills Tony, causing Andrew's version of Peter Parker to retaliate and kill Max. https://t.co/M0Rvbop3j9

I'm so confused why Electro needs an Arc Reactor? Isn't his power quite literally generating electricity? https://t.co/n5bLi0gfM1

Foxx is by far the only Spider-Man: No Way Home star to hint at his character’s confrontation with “Spider-Men,” suggesting multiple of them rather than just one. However, Toby Maguire & Andrew Garfield have swayed off from hinting at any such involvement with the Marvel Studios film.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will be a multiversal event involving the likes of top-tier villains from different Marvel timelines, specifically Maguire & Garfield’s Spider-Man universes. So far, the trailers have only revealed Alfred Molina’s Dr. Oc, Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman, Rhys Ifans’ Lizard and Foxx’s Electro, and its rumored the big two Spidey reveal is all set for the big screen.
Directed by Jon Watts from a script penned by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: No Way Home also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, and J.K. Simmons. Fans can hope to learn more next month when Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives on December 17th.
