As we get ready for the next phase in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more news is starting to trickle in for the cast and plans for the upcoming movies. One of the most anticipated releases is the new Spider-Man installment, starring Tom Holland in the titular role.
While we’ve definitely seen crossovers between all of the Marvel movies and characters before, it’s definitely nice to know that Benedict Cumberbatch will be joining the cast of the Spider-Man movie to reprise his role as Doctor Strange, as reported by Hollywood Reporter.
His inclusion definitely makes sense after the events of Avengers: Endgame. With Iron Man officially out of the picture, Doctor Strange would certainly fit well into the mentor role for a young Peter Parker and help to push both their character arcs forward in a meaningful way.
The new Spider-Man movie will also see the return of Jamie Foxx as Electro, who had also played the same role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, starring Andrew Garfield. The movie is set to start shooting later this month.
