Benedict Cumberbatch Will Appear as Doctor Strange in Spider-Man 3!

For everyone doubting that Spider-Man 3 will be dipping its feet into the multiverse after last week’s Jamie Foxx news, here’s a huge clue that the movie will have ties to the Doctor Strange sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will be appearing in Spider-Man 3 as Doctor Strange, and the role will be a mentor one similar to Tony Stark’s previous role with Peter Parker.

Rumors say that whatever Wanda does in WandaVision will cause chaos with the multiverse, setting up a shockwave across the MCU that will affect future movies. As Spider-Man 3 is releasing between WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness it makes sense that Spidey will be dealing with the aftershock of whatever Wanda does, and then having Stephen Strange show up would be a good way to lead into the Doctor Strange sequel.
