Benedict Cumberbatch Returning as Doctor Strange in 'Spider-Man 3'

Benedict Cumberbatch will once again be suiting up as Doctor Strange – this time for Spider-Man 3, THR reports!

The crossover event makes sense as Benedict‘s character, Stephen Strange, is based in New York City as is Spider-Man’s Peter Parker. Tom Holland will be returning in his role as well.

Another Doctor Strange movie is also expected in the coming years: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness! The movie is currently set for release in March of 2022.

Currently, Spider-Man 3 is set for release on December 17, 2021. Release dates have been changing left and right due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so stay tuned for any more alterations to the Marvel release schedule.

Meanwhile, find out who else is returning to the Spider-Man universe for the third movie (it’s not someone you’d expect!)
