Benedict Cumberbatch is reprising his role as Doctor Strange in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man 3.

Stephen Strange and Peter Parker are set to reunite as The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Benedict Cumberbatch has signed on to join the cast of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man 3. The reveal comes a week after it was reported that the movie would also feature Jamie Foxx’s Electro, a character that was introduced in Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man movies.

According to THR, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man starts filming later this month in Atlanta. Meanwhile, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is also expected to begin production this month, but in London.

The plot of Spider-Man 3 is being kept under wraps. In addition to Tom Holland, Spider-Man 3 is expected to see the return of Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon and Tony Revolori. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal are on board as producers.

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man 3 is expected to begin production this fall. The film was originally slated to hit theaters in July 2021 before being delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s currently scheduled for December 17, 2021.
