In a new interview, Kevin Feige gives a solid direct response about the likelihood of Doctor Strange appearing in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Since the release of Avengers: Infinity War, fans have wondered whether Spider-Man and Doctor Strange would work together again in the future. The speculation went further once the news broke that Mysterio would be the villain in the next film. So, it’s no surprise that people would be asking Marvel‘s Kevin Feige about the possibility of him appearing in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Speaking with Slashfilm, Feige was more than forward about the idea:
Peter: I’m wondering ’cause London there is a sanctum there. Is Doctor Strange gonna be the one in this one?
Kevin: I could be coy about it but no… I don’t wanna get people excited. But Benedict and Holland have liked the idea of working together.
Honestly, this is slightly disappointing. It would have been fun to see them team up again to bring down the Spider-Man villain Mysterio. It would also work since both Doctor Strange and Mysterio are two sides of a magical coin.
Jon Watts will return to direct Spider-Man: Far From Home from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. Tom Holland will return as Spider-Man while Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to join the cast as Mysterio with Michael Keaton returning as the Vulture.
Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released in theaters on July 5, 2019.
