2020's thrown a lot of things my way but I didn't expect Sam Raimi directing a DOCTOR STRANGE movie where his star is simultaneously going to be shooting… SPIDER-MAN 3.

Doctor Strange is joining the third Spider-Man along with Amazing Spider-Man 2's Electro, Jamie Foxx. The next (Sam Raimi-directed) Doctor Strange movie is called Multiverse of Madness. It + Spidey 3 are shooting at the same time. Will Tobey Maguire + Andrew Garfield show up?? pic.twitter.com/Xh2CQIhM8A
