As Marvel fans are still coming down from the initial high of seeing both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprise their roles as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), it seems that the duo’s time in Kevin Feige’s Marvel Cinematic Universe may actually be just beginning.

There have already been rumors that Garfield is set to return in Sony Pictures’ upcoming Morbius (2022), starring Jared Leto in the title role.

Brick Fanatics reported numerous details about the set, “76218 The Sanctum Sanctorum,” including the fact that it has yet been confirmed if the set will be based on Marvel Comics or on the upcoming Doctor Strange (2016) sequel movie.

The article did note, however, that the rumored minifigures that are seemingly set to come with the Marvel LEGO set indicate it could very well be the latter:

The Sanctum Sanctorum may include three Doctor Strange variants, Mordo, Wanda Maximoff, Iron Man and Spider-Man. Those minifigures do come with the caveat of being ‘very lightly rumoured’, however…

The inclusion of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch is primarily what is leading people to think that this new set may be based on Marvel Studios’ next big blockbuster. Elizabeth Olsen’s character is set to play a major role in Doctor Strange 2, which takes place after the events of WandaVision, in which Maximoff inadvertently placed the town of Westview, New Jersey under a chaos magic spell as a result of her grief after losing Vision (Paul Bettany) in Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
