Very few details about Spider-Man: Far From Home are known at this point. About all we know is that Peter Parker will find himself overseas—hence the title—and that he may battle against Quentin Beck (a.k.a. Mysterio), who is reportedly being played by Jake Gyllenhaal.
With Mysterio said to be the movie’s villain, many have speculated that Doctor Strange will make an appearance in the sequel. The logic behind the speculation is that Mysterio deals in magic, and seeing as Doctor Strange is a master of the mystic arts, he could be a good ally for Spidey. Not only that, but Strange has a sanctum overseas—in London, specifically.
So, will Doctor Strange appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home? SlashFilm posed the question to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who gave an emphatic answer: No.
“I could be coy about it but no,” Feige said.
That’s about as cut and dry as you can get.
Feige did suggest, however, that another character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe could make an appearance, though he didn’t say who. Spidey has formed a deep bond with Tony Stark, but seeing as Stark was a big part of Spider-Man: Homecoming, it’s unlikely Marvel will follow that same path.
So, who will play a part in Spider-Man: Far From Home? Your guess is as good as ours. Remember, the upcoming sequel is said to take place shortly after Avengers 4, and not every superhero will survive the big showdown. Maybe it will be someone we don’t expect, like Scarlet Witch.
Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 5, 2019.
