Spider-Man 3, starring Tom Holland, is currently set for release in a couple years but despite the fact that it’s a ways out, there’s still some things we know about the title. Here’s everything we know, and don’t know, about the untitled Marvel Cinematic Universe film.

Spider-Man is a rare case for the MCU. While the character hasn’t always been a part of the main film universe, in 2015 Sony, who holds the film rights to the character, and Marvel, struck a deal that allowed him to take part in their series of films.

While it’s certainly hit a few road bumps along the way, with both companies at one point not renewing their deal over disputes, for now the web-slinger remains as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Because of this, he has a new film on the way.

Tom Holland last appeared as the web-slinger in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.


While Tom Holland will, of course, be back as Spider-Man, the only other real piece of information we know about casting is that of Jamie Foxx’s return as Electro. The news shook the film community when it was announced in early October 2020, as it’s safe to say most people didn’t expect Foxx to reprise his role from the Andrew Garfield-led Amazing Spider-Man series.

On October 8, 2020, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch joined the cast, once again reprising his role as Doctor Strange in the MCU. According to the outlet, Strange will be a “mentor” to Peter Parker in the film, although more details about the part he plays have not been revealed at the time of writing.

This casting fuels the rumor that the movie will deal with the multi-verse, especially considering that the next Doctor Strange film is already confirmed to do so.

Aside from those three, however, we don’t know anything more about the casting, including whether Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, and others will be coming back.

Spider-Man 3 first look coming in December

The film has already started production, and Sony promised that fans will have a chance to get a first look before the end of the year. There’s no news on whether it will be a teaser trailer or a full-blown preview, but more information will be released in the holiday season. Either way, it’s good to know that things are finally kicking into gear, with the film still expected to be released on December 16, 2021.

Reliable outlet MCU Cosmic has reported that filming for Spider-Man 3, which is codenamed Serenity Now, is expected to start in New York City on October 16, 2020. With previous reports stating that the movie would start filming later in the year, this could mean that a trailer might come sooner rather than later.

That being said, it’s important to remember that, with the state of the world, anything is possible when it comes to the production and fans should be prepared for delays.

If all goes according to plan, however, fans should be able to see a first look at the movie sometime in early to mid-2021.


Plot details about the film are currently unknown but with the casting of Jamie Foxx as Electro, many fans are speculating that third film could deal with the multi-verse in some way, similar to that of the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

These rumors flourished after the fact that Foxx uploaded an image to Instagram featuring multiple Spider-Men looking at Electro, while also confirming the casting announcement. The image itself was fan-made, however, it may be proof that the movie could deal with the multi-verse in some way.

At this point, only time will tell what’s going to happen with the movie. We’ll be updating this article as more information comes out about Spider-Man 3, or whatever it ends up being called, so keep it locked to Dexerto.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has started work on a mysterious TV show, teasing fans on details surrounding his role as one of the leading characters.

Ninja’s rise to mainstream stardom isn’t slowing down anytime soon as the internet celebrity has teased his involvement in a brand new TV show. Details are scarce and there’s no telling when this show might be revealed, but the streamer did provide some key information in his announcement.

The specific work appears to be for an animated series as Ninja’s involvement has been purely voiceover work for the time being. “recorded my first voice over for a main role in a TV show today,” he said on January 7.

“Although I can’t share more yet, voice acting is so fun. A huge passion of mine that I’m starting to get to live out.”

It’s only been a matter of months since Ninja made one of the biggest moves of his career. Brad Pitt and Chris Evans are just a few of the names Ninja is now brushing shoulders with at Hollywood’s biggest talent agency, the Creative Artists Agency.

This major deal appears to be paying dividends in big ways already. A leading role in an animated series isn’t something you see from popular content creators every day.

Leading this charge is exactly what Ninja set his sights on months back. Focusing on “literally anything and everything Hollywood” is what he outlined to Hollywood Reporter in July 2020

That means everything from an appearance on the Masked Singer to work on various cartoons as well.

Ninja’s first big televised appearance came on hit Fox show The Masked Singer.

It’s only a matter of time until we find out exactly what this show looks like. Could Ninja be the actual character in the animated series? Or is he purely providing his voice for someone else’s creation? We’ll just have to wait and see.

This isn’t the only major Hollywood production Ninja is involved with at this point in his career. Upcoming Ryan Reynolds movie Free Guy is set to feature a number of major content creators, with Ninja chief among them.
