Now, with Tony Stark gone, fans like Peter Ramsey hoped that Peter Parker would venture out on his own, hold down his own movies, and potentially fail in all of the ways that help make Spider-Man endearing. Giving him yet another “mentor” in his very next film is… disheartening. However, it’s unclear at this stage just how much of a role that Doctor Strange (Cumberbatch) will play in the movie. There certainly were numerous time that the NYC-based heroes teamed up in the comics. And Strange made a cameo in Thor: Ragnarok, sending the Asgardian on a path to find his father Odin. So there are ways the heroes can work together without making Strange a full-on Spidey mentor.
