Spider-Man 3 may not be released until December 17, 2021 (and perhaps later, as the Marvel movies are pushed further back), but according to its opening credits, shooting of Tom Holland could begin in Atlanta, Georgia.
This is the latest news about the as yet untitled movie Spider-Man 3. A number of actors have been confirmed, and there are rumors that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will return to shoot Marvel’s own version of Spider-Verse.
The cast of these two former Peter Parkers has not been confirmed, but Holland has confirmed that he is in Atlanta and ready to shoot the third Spider-Man. On his Instagram story there is a face mask on which Holland says “OK, so we just landed in Atlanta, and it’s time for Spider-Man 3. Let’s go!
The only actor confirmed for the movie so far besides Holland is Benedict Cumberbatch, who resumes his role as Doctor Strange, who is believed to become Parker’s mentor after the death of Tony Stark.

The Hollywood Reporter also wrote that Jamie Foxx will be part of the trio as Electro, the character he played alongside Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
With this character taken over from Garfield Spider-Man (and J.K. Simmons, who briefly revisits the role of J. Jonah Jameson from the Maguire films in Far From Home), the opportunity has arisen for us to see more from the first Spider-Man trilogy from 2001 to 2007 (starring Maguire) and the two Amazing Spider-Man films from 2012 and 2014 respectively.
Fans have postulated that Cumberbatch will return for this reason. Doctor Strange’s second film, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness, is scheduled to be released in 2022, but fans believe that it will first open the multiverse in Spider-Man 3, which features all the Peter Parkers on the big screen.
Sony and Marvel, however, have not yet commented on the cast of Foxx, Garfield or Maguire.
In addition to these former Spider-Men and Spidey villains, actors such as Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon and Tony Revolori are expected, as well as director Jon Watts.
Holland has come to Atlanta after the shooting for the long-awaited “Uncharted” adaptation was completed. The first picture of the British actor as Nathan Drake was released in mid-October, and the film is expected to be released in July 2021.
The actor is not the only one preparing to get back into the Spider suit. Last week, Spider-Man stunt double Greg Townley released footage of him rehearsing a stunt on his instagram with the caption: “It’s time to dust off the cobwebs.
If Spider-Man 3 keeps its release date, 2021 will be Marvel’s biggest year yet. With Black Widow, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, as well as The Eternals, also scheduled for release this year, Marvel will release four titles in one year for the first time.
Spider-Man 3 will be released on December 17, 2021.
