There appear to be more additions happening to the cast of Spider-Man 3. It is being reported that Benedict Cumberbatch will be joining the newest Spider-Man movie as the mystical superhero Doctor Strange.

By the sounds of the report, Cumberbatch will play the mentor role for Spider-Man similar to Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

It feels like this gives clarity to last week's news of bringing back Jamie Foxx as Electro, who previously played the role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which had Andrew Garfield as Spidey. Cumberbatch is about to start production on Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, which is expected to explore alternate realities. My guess is this will extend into Spider-Man 3, which will involve the two dealing with these different realities.

As of now, Spider-Man 3 is scheduled to be released in theaters on December 17th, 2021.
