Following the announcement that Jamie Foxx would reprise his The Amazing Spider-Man 2 role as Electro, it has now been announced Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange will also join Tom Holland in Spider-Man 3.

The untitled film, slated to go into production in the near future, will showcase Cumberbatch before he stars in his own Doctor Strange sequel, slated to be directed by Sam Raimi.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Doctor Strange will take the role of Iron Man and become a mentor for Spider-Man in the new film. Tony Stark died in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame and Nick Fury is slated to have his own series on Disney+. Not only that, his appearance in the film may answer how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will implement Sony‘s new multiverse initiative. It’s unclear whether or not Foxx will be playing the same Electro that appeared in that film or a brand new version of the character, but Strange’s appearance may be the answer as to how he appeared if he is reprising the same villain.

In other entertainment news, The Witcher has offered a first look at its main characters for season two.
