Rumors, of course, are running absolutely rampant, with Avengers and Doctor Strange franchise star Benedict Cumberbatch seemingly confirming that the movie will delve into the multiverse and reports circulating that former Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield — along with other past cast members like Kirsten Dunst, Jamie Foxx, and Emma Stone — will all return for the third installment in Marvel’s Spider-Man saga.
In spite of these numerous rumors, of course, the plot will primarily center around Marvel Avenger Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man/Peter Parker. Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon), and MJ (Zendaya) are all set to return and reprise their roles.
Now, new set photos have given away a major detail about the upcoming film — it’s set (at least in part) during the holiday season! Just Jared shared images with some information about the scene that was being shot.
