Fans of Spider-Man experienced multiple announcements during the last week, prompting excitement amongst dedicated supporters. It was revealed that Jamie Foxx’s Electro would reprise his role in “Marvel’s Spider-Man Three”. Foxx last appeared in the Andrew Garfield-iteration of Spidey, which hasn’t received the same critical acclaim as Marvel’s version. Jamie Foxx’s Electro was one of the few aspects of “The Amazing Spider-Man Series” that received praise from critics, prompting Marvel to recast Foxx as Electro.
Knowing that one of Spider-Man’s most determined villains is returning, fans began wondering how Marvel will bring Jamie Foxx’s Electro from another film series to their own. That information has been revealed, with Marvel announcing that Doctor Strange will make a prolonged appearance in Spider-Man Three. This revelation has prompted for excitement for supporters, with the arrival of Doctor Strange guarantying a long-time rumour of the Spider-Verse appearing in live-action cinema.
Marvel’s is using Spider-Man Three to setup multiple iterations of the multiverse, including the Spider-Verse. It’s known that the sequel to Doctor Strange is named “Multiverse of Madness”. Having him appear in the 3rd Spider-Man before his sequel will set up the events of MoM. That film is slated to arrive three months after Spider-Mans final marvel film.
It should be noted that Sony Pictures owns the character rights for Spider-Man & will end their partnership with Marvel after three movies. This means that Doctor Strange setting up the Spider-Verse would permit Sony to move Tom Holland over to their exclusive multiverse, while also enable older versions of Spider-Man to return. ‘
The Return of Toby Maguire
Marvel Predictors suggest that Spider-Man Three will enable Toby Maguire & Andrew Garfield to return as the iconic superhero. Toby Maguire’s Spider-Man will likely return in “Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness”, as the Director of this film is Sam Raimi. Director Sam Raimi helmed all three original live-action Spider-Man films & has maintained a friendship with Toby Maguire. Furthermore, Maguire has stated he’d exclusively return to the role if Sam Raimi were at the helm. His opportunity will arrive likely in March 2022. All Marvel films have been delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
