Spider-Man 3: Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange Joins Sequel

Spider-Man 3: Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange Joins Sequel

Is there a doctor in the house? Because the multiverse is madness! Last week’s shocking news on the return of Jaime Foxx’s Electro for the untitled Spider-Man 3 movie took the internet by surprise. What exactly are Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures planning? Could we be getting a live-action take on the Spider-Verse? Well, this may be the case!

Big news dropped via The Hollywood Reporter that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will be joining the next solo outing with fan-favorite actor, Tom Holland! Having briefly shared some screentime together in both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, having the good doctor and the web-slinger teaming up again feels like a dream come true in nerd heaven! The article states that Strange will take on the mentor role like what Robert Downey Jr. and Sam Jackson did in the previous films.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is getting ready to begin production later in the month. The third Spider-Man movie is looking at next week to start shooting. It’s possible both projects will shoot simultaneously. Filmmaker Jon Watts is back at it in the director’s chair. Supporting cast members Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori and Jacob Batalon are all set to return as well.

Both Spider-Man and Doctor Strange were the creations of the great Steve Ditko and the iconic writer Stan Lee. These characters have teamed up quite a few times in the pages of the comics. It also goes far and beyond into animation like Spider-Man: The Animated Series (Fox Kids) and Ultimate Spider-Man (Disney XD). With what little onscreen chemistry we got in Infinity War, I  for one am hyped and curious to see what will go down!

As of now, Sony Pictures has dated the untitled Spider-Man movie for December 17th, 2021. Disney has the second Doctor Strange movie releasing on March 25th, 2022.
