'Spider-Man 3' Will Feature Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange

"Spider-Man: Far From Home" left Peter Parker in trouble, but it looks like Doctor Strange will be stepping in to help him out.

After the unexpected event that occurred during "Avengers: Endgame," we found out that the so-called "endgame" was that Tony Stark would sacrifice himself to save the world from the wrath of Thanos and his army.

That is a moment in MCU history that will never die, and that same moment is the moment when Tom Holland's Spider-Man lost his mentor...

Peter Parker was then forced to be the new Iron-Man-improved-Spider-Man in "Spider-Man: Far From Home," where he was led astray, and then his secret identity was revealed along with being framed by a villain Mysterio, who everyone thought was the real hero.

If only there was another superhero in New York that could help Peter clear his name...

Good thing that we just learned in an exclusive report from THR that MCU superhero Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will be opening a portal and hopping into "Spider-Man 3" to help out our friendly neighborhood webslinger.

It's no secret Spider-Man is one of the strongest heroes in the Avengers, but he is also one of the youngest, and most gullible, members.

We also learned recently that Jamie Foxx will be reprising his villainous role as Electro in this next film.

Foxx previously played the villain in 2014's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" (when Andrew Garfield was webslinging the way as Spider-Man).

We're hoping for Peter's sake that Doctor Strange will be able to come in and get him out of the mess, as well as maybe try to fill those shoes that have been vacant since Tony Stark's departure.
