In the much-anticipated third instalment in the 'Spider-Man' franchise, starring Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch is expected to reprise his role of Doctor Strange. After Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark starred in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' (2017) and Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury featured in last year's 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' as Peter Parker's mentor, the casting of Cumberbatch is the third major crossover between films produced by Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' 'Spider-Man' films. In the franchise, Chris Evans' Captain America also made a brief appearance.
Production on 'Spider-Man 3' is scheduled to begin in November with director Jon Watts in Atlanta, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are producing the movie. The return of Electro, played by Jamie Foxx, can be explained by making Strange as part of 'Spider-Man'. In The Incredible Spider-Man 2 in 2014, which starred Andrew Garfield as the titular hero, the actor last played the part. The 'Doctor Strange' sequel 'Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness' is about to start shooting Cumberbatch, which will explore alternative realities, and some speculate on the cross-section.
According to reports,' Spider-Man 3' is due to start shooting around the same time as 'Madness Multiverse,' which is going to be shot in London. When and where Cumberbatch will shoot his scenes is unclear. Jon Watts, the filmmaker behind 'Homecoming' and 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' last year, is in the director's chair for the third installment, which Sony has dated for December 17, 2021, although moviegoers now expect release dates to change thanks to the pandemic.
As cameras roll in Atlanta, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Tony Revolori and Jacob Batalon-most of the supporting cast from previous films-are expected to be on the call sheet. In 'Avengers: Infinity War', Cumberbatch and Holland first shared the screen as Dr Strange and Spider-Man.
