Benedict Cumberbatch will join Tom Holland and Jamie Foxx in Spider-Man. According to THR, Cumberland’s Doctor Strange will be Peter Parker’s new mentor in Spider-Man 3. Doctor Strange will file the “mentor role that was previously occupied by Robert Downey Jr., who played Tony Stark/Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
It was revealed early this month that Jamie Foxx will portray Electro in the new Spider-Man movie. However, Foxx assured fans this version of the character will be different from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With Spider-Man identity now revealed and a fugitive, we can only wonder how Doctor Strange and Electro will fit in the film story.
Spider-Man 3 is set to start shooting in Atlanta this fall. The is scheduled for release on November 5, 2021.
