Benedict Cumberbatch is reportedly set to reprise his role as Doctor Strange in the third Spider-Man movie.
Sources claim the actor, 44, will make an appearance opposite Tom Holland in the Marvel sequel as a mentor of sorts to the teen hero, with filming set to begin this month.
Benedict - who is also set to film the sequel Doctor Strange and and the Multiverse of Madness this month - is also thought to appearing opposite the villainous Electro, following reports that Jamie Foxx will also reprise the role in the 2021 blockbuster.

Benedict will reportedly don his cloak of levitation to play the supernatural hero Doctor Strange in currently titled Spider-Man 3, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It's thought he'll continue the trend of acting as a mentor to young Peter Parker, following Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jnr.) in the first film and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in the second.
The film is due to begin filming in Atlanta later this month, and it remains to be seen how Benedict will produce his scenes while working on the Multiverse of Madness, which is due to begin production in London at the same time.
