While there is confirmation that Jamie Foxx is returning as Electro and Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus for Marvel’s Spider-Man 3, many of the high-volume casting rumors circulating online have yet to be made official or even supported by trades. Kevin Feige event commented on the amount of rumors suggesting during WandaVision promotion that a bunch of them were “way off the mark”.
That said, there is now word from Amazing Spider-Man 2 actor Dane DeHaan while speaking with the Radio Times that there is zero truth to the rumblings he is coming back as Harry Osborn aka Green Goblin.
DEHAAN: “There’s no truth to those rumors. I don’t even know how that would be pulled off. I would certainly love to make some kind of movie like that again. I like making superhero movies or in that kind of world and I’m sure I’ll find myself in that world again. And I have no idea what they’re doing with the Spider-Man movies now, but I don’t really understand a world in which that would be possible.”
Filming is still underway using the working title The November Project in Atlanta and Sony’s promised “December surprise/reveal” never materialized.
We already know that the film is directly connect to Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness with Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Doctor Strange and would lead us to believe that Tom Holland could have a role as Spidey in that sequel as well, given both projects are shooting at the same time the two films have strong ties seems like a foregone conclusion.
Spider-Man 3 is set for a release on December 17th, 2021 but with multiple release date changes at Sony Pictures and other studios the film moving wouldn’t be shocking since it’s already move once before from July 2021 after there had been production delays. Fans seem to believe due to the holiday theme of film that the December release is an unmovable option, however, as previously mentioned it was originally going to be a summer release and the holiday aspect likely has zero barring when they’ll drop it in theaters.
