Benedict Cumberbatch Returning as Doctor Strange in 'Spider-Man 3′

Saturday, 10 Oct, 2020

The 44-year-old actor is set to reprise his role as Doctor Strange in the new movie, which will be the third film to star Tom Holland as the web-slinging superhero. We last saw the Marvel Cinematic Universe's magic hero in Avengers: Endgame, which saw the death of Spider-Man's previous mentor, Tony Stark.

Are you excited to see Spider-Man team-up with Doctor Strange in Spider-Man 3? This time, another big name will be joining the webhead's next adventure: Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori and Jacob Batalon are expected to reprise their roles for Spider-Man 3 as well.

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. Peter Parker (the flagship character of Sony's Marvel franchise) is partly defined by his idolization of Iron Man (the flagship character Disney's MCU), adding narrative weight to the corporate agreement between Sony and Marvel. Perhaps Doctor Strange will help unite the two cinematic universes?
