‘Doctor Strange’: ‘Spider-Man’ Star Tom Holland Spotted on Set

     December 16, 2015


Need a new source for Doctor Strange updates? Look no further than Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito. He’s been posting behind-the-scenes pics from the set of the new superhero movie to his Twitter feed. While his latest batch includes looks inside what we can only guess to be the inner sanctum of The Ancient One, there’s one snapshot that sees Tom Holland, the MCU’s new Spider-Man, palling around on set.

The pic in question sees Holland smiling next to D’Esposito and Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson. Does this mean Spidey will be making at least a cameo appearance in the film? If Anthony Mackie’s Falcon can appear in Ant-Man, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow can feature in the Captain America movies, and so on and so forth, then why not the newly minted web-slinger? We have seen stranger cameos as with Chris Evans popping up as one of Loki’s illusions in Thor: The Dark World, and we know how trippy Marvel is teasing Doctor Strange to be. Then again, it’s also likely that Holland could have just been visiting the set to see what the fuss is all about.

  Also featured in D’Esposito’s slew of pics are executive producer Stephen Broussard, the newly confirmed co-writer C. Robert Cargill, and production designer Charles Wood. See the pics below.  

Doctor Strange continues filming with Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme, Chiwetel Ejiofor as fellow sorcerer and future rival Baron Mordo, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, and — in unconfirmed roles — Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, Scott Adkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Amy Landecker. The film is the story of Stephen Strange, a brilliant neurosurgeon who loses the use of his hands after a car accident. Traveling to Tibet, he encounters The Ancient One who teaches him the ways of the mystic arts, transforming him into Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme.

Meanwhile, Holland will be making his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War before spinning off to headline his own Spider-Man movie, which has been rumored to feature Iron Man. While we wait to weed out fact from fiction in the Phase Three film slate, let’s start culling our comic books for Spidey-Strange team-ups just in case.
