It looks as though there may be some mysticism in Spider-Man 3 as Benedict Cumberbatch is reportedly joining the cast as Doctor Strange.

According to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, Benedict Cumberbatch is joining the cast of Spider-Man 3. This rapidly adds some credence to the rumors that Jamie Foxx will be reprising his role as Electro in the upcoming film.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is beginning to set up its concept of a multiverse. The upcoming WandaVision series on Disney Plus will start dealing with the concept, and then it will go full speed in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

It sounds as though we may be getting a bit of a taster of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in live-action form here, and that makes us wonder who else may be showing up in this film.

Spider-Man 3 is currently dated for Dec. 17, 2021, but we fully expect that to be pushed back due to the coronavirus.
