Peter Paker’s new mentor is nothing more and nothing less than Dr. Strange, who will be played again by Benedict Cumberbatch in Spider-Man 3.
This was confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, who assure that the character will replace Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) as a mentor and will be “a father figure for Peter.”
The presence of Dr. Strange in the film is certainly interesting, and lends itself to the interpretation of a possible “Spider-Verse.”
