We don’t have any story details to share for Spider-Man 3, but Benedict Cumberbatch is reprising his role as Doctor Strange in the film.
It was explained the the idea behind Cumberbatch coming into the story is so that he can be Peter Parker’s new mentor. Parker will be looking for some direction and advice from someone, especially with the situation he’s found himself in as a wanted man. Doctor Strange is gonna be that guy.
It’s safe to say that the events of Spider-Man 3 will lead to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and I’m confident that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will also appear in that movie.
It seems clear to fans that bringing Doctor Strange into the mix will play a big role in the Spider-Man multiverse and using that as a way to transition the character out of the MCU and into the Spider-Verse that Sony is building.
Holland and Cumberbatch will be joined by Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori, and Jacob Batalon who are reprising their roles. Oh yeah! And Jamie Foxx will also be back in the role of the villainous Electro from the previously made The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Jon Watts is returning to helm the sequel, and the movie is currently set to be released on December 17th, 2021.
