SPIDER-MAN 3 Will Tie Into DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, Confirms Kevin Feige
This nearly got missed in all the huge Marvel Studios news coming out of Disney's Investor Day, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed that Spider-Man 3 will tie into Doctor Strange 2...
We weren't expecting any Spider-Man 3 news during Disney's Investor Day. While Tom Holland's Peter Parker calls the Marvel Cinematic Universe home, he's only on loan to Marvel Studios, and the threequel is ultimately a Sony Pictures release. Despite that, Kevin Feige dropped a very intriguing hint about that movie's place in this shared world.
Talking about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness - and confirming that newcomer Xochitl Gomez is indeed playing America Chavez - the Marvel Studios boss said that both WandaVision and Spider-Man 3 tie into the sequel.
With Benedict Cumberbatch's Sorcerer Supreme appearing in the latter, you might think that's a given. However, with Strange set to head into the Multiverse, this feels like the closest we're going to get to confirmation that Spider-Man 3 is indeed some sort of "Spider-Verse" adventure.
Dropping some further hints about the Doctor Strange sequel, Feige said, "We’re really pushing the boundaries of storytelling with this thrilling, scary, mind-bending adventure."
Nothing the Marvel Studios boss says is a mistake or accident, and we have no doubt that he knew exactly what he was doing by mentioning that Spider-Man 3 is tied to a movie that will take Doctor Strange "into the Multiverse of Madness." With everyone from Jamie Foxx to Alfred Molina and Emma Stone reportedly set to appear in the Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel, Peter visiting the "Spider-Verse" now seems inevitable, and that's very exciting.
What do you guys think of this update from Feige?
