MCU’s Third SPIDER-MAN Installment Gets a Little Stranger

The Hollywood Reporter:

The good and strange doctor has been caught in the spider’s web.

Benedict Cumberbatch is putting on the cloak of levitation and will reprise Marvel supernatural hero Doctor Strange for the latest Spider-Man movie installment, starring Tom Holland and being made by Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.

The move puts Cumberbatch in the mentor role that was previously occupied by Robert Downey Jr., who played Tony Stark/Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and by Samuel L. Jackson in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the latter reprising Nick Fury.

So, given that the next Doctor Strange film is titled Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and that as we’ve covered previously, Jamie Foxx is reprising his role of Electro from an entirely unrelated version of Spider-Man on film…

…Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 has to be all about the multiverse, right?
