Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange Set To Join Spider-Man 3

Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange Set To Join Spider-Man 3

Benedict Cumberbatch is set to reprise Marvel's Doctor Strange for the next Spider-Man movie.

The Sherlock actor will don the cloak of levitation and join fellow Brit Tom Holland in the film, The Hollywood Reporter has discovered.

Spider-Man 3 is currently set for release next year and is in production at the moment with Marvel Studios and Sony.

The casting is the third big crossover between the films that are produced by Marvel Studios (now owned by Disney) and Sony Pictures' Spider-Man films, which have Holland as the lead character.

Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark was in 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming and Samuel L. Jackson starred as Nick Fury in Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019).

With Cumberbatch's character Stephen Strange already based in New York City - as well as Holland's Peter Parker, it's the perfect set up. The characters first met in Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, when they famously battled Thanos.

Earlier this week, Jamie Foxx put up a now-deleted Instagram post, in which he seemingly confirmed his return to the Spider-Man franchise as Electro has also set tongues wagging online for a different reason - they think there could be a Spider-Verse film in the offing, too.

Foxx shared a picture to Instagram in which he all but confirmed he is returning to the role, but in the picture he chose there were multiple Spideys, suggesting that there could be another - live action, perhaps? - Into The Multi-Verse type film in the offing.

As with a lot of these sorts of things, we can't go reading too much into a simple Instagram post, but the fact that it has been deleted suggests either that Foxx has been told not to give away too much, or not to start speculation about films that might not even be happening.

We'll have to wait and see, as ever.

As we've mentioned, if you're a proper enthusiast of Marvel affiliated films, you'll remember that Foxx actually played a bright blue version of Electro back in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise starring Andrew Garfield.

Foxx played the glowing blue nemesis of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but has since been touted for a reprise of that role, this time against Tom Holland's version of the web-slinging superhero.

Spider-Man 3 is currently scheduled to be released on 17 December 2021.
