Spider-Man 3 rumored to be Spider-Verse Multiverse movie
With Feige confirming that Doctor Strange 2 and Spider-Man 3 will connect – Benedict Cumberbatch is also starring in Spider-Man 3 – it seems the rumors of a Spider-Verse movie are true as it’s said Tom Holland will be joined by the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield versions of Spidey.
It’s also been said Jamie Foxx is appearing as Electro, and Alfred Molina will be back as Doctor Octupus, with Kirsten Dunst back as MJ and possibly Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy.
Rumors also offer Feige is bringing back the Charlie Cox Daredevil for Spider-Man 3 as the lawyer for Peter Parker (Daredevil is also rumored for She-Hulk).
It appears as if Feige’s “Multiverse” storyline, first mentioned in Spider-Man: Far From Home by Mysterio, will kick off with next month’s release of WandaVision, tie into Loki, crack open the Spider-Verse in Spider-Man 3, and then the Multiverse will be blown wide open in Doctor Strange 2.
It’s also been claimed Tobey Maguire will suit up for Doctor Strange 2 and that Feige wants a Multiverse Avengers team made up of actors that were once up for the roles that went to the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson, with Tom Cruise as Iron Man, John Krasinski as Captain America, and Emily Blunt as Black Widow.
