Technically, this is a Sony Pictures movie made in partnership with Marvel Studios. We’re including it here since Spidey is part of the MCU. In July 2020, Sony delayed the movie one month to next December.
The third Spidey movie sounds like it’s turning into a fun, live-action “Spider-Verse” movie. Previous characters and villains from Sony’s old “Spider-Man” films, including Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Dr. Octavius (Alfred Molina), are expected. Other previous Spider-Man actors may play a role in the film as well.

Feige described the sequel as a “thrilling, scary, mind-bending adventure” and confirmed Sam Raimi (“Spider-Man”) is taking over the film. He has full support from Derrickson.
Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will reprise their roles as Dr. Stephen Strange, Christine Palmer, and Baron Mordo.
Xochitl Gomez will play comic character America Chavez (who becomes Miss America). Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) will be in the sequel, too. The events of her Disney Plus series, “WandaVision,” will directly tie in to “Doctor Strange 2.”
