Doctor Strange in Spider-Man Far From Home

We don’t know much about Marvel Studios and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel. Spider-Man: Far From Home will film in London and feature Peter Parker on a summer vacation with friends across the pond. We’ve been told the story picks up a few minutes after the events of the yet-to-be-titled Avengers 4, and Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, a disgruntled special effects wizard and stunt man who has decided to use his VFX magic to become the next supervillain.

This has led many fans to believe that Doctor Strange might make an appearance in the webslinger’s sequel. After all, Strange has a sanctum in London, and you might think Peter Parker would seek the help of a wizard to fight someone who appears to have magical powers. Talking to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, who seemed to be in a debunking mood, I was able to pose this question and actually get a definite answer. Will we see Doctor Strange in Spider-Man Far From Home?

Will We See Doctor Strange in Spider-Man Far From Home?

What follows is an excerpt from my conversation with Feige:

Peter: You just announced Spider-Man: Far From Home, the title.

Kevin: I didn’t.

Peter: Or you didn’t.  The master spoiler himself did. 

Kevin: Yeah.  It’s a fun gag that’s half fun and half real.

Peter: I’ve heard.

Kevin: With him and Ruffalo.

Peter: Yeah.

Kevin: Like ha-ha-ha, what did you do?

Peter: I was wondering since this is gonna take place mostly in London or you’ve insinuated that large–

Kevin: Shooting in London.

Peter: But there are scenes in London.

Kevin: Yes.

Peter: And you’ve also said in the past that the plan for these Spider-Man movies is to kind of have another Marvel cameo in each one kind of like you did with Tony Stark. 

Kevin: I did?

Peter: Ha, I thought you did in some older interview.

Kevin: It’s in the MCU so yeah.

Peter: I’m wondering ’cause London there is a sanctum there.  Is Doctor Strange gonna be the one in this one? 

Kevin: No.

Peter: No?

Kevin: I could be coy about it but no.

Peter: (shocked that he gave a direct response) Okay.

Kevin: I don’t wanna get people excited. But Benedict and Holland have liked the idea of working together.

So there you have it, don’t expect to see Doctor Strange in Spider-Man: Far From Home. But that now raises the question, what Marvel Cinematic Universe character(s) might appear in the sequel? Tony Stark seems like the obvious choice, but we honestly don’t know if he’ll survive The Avengers.
