Marvel Studios is back to producing projects in bulk as usual, which is a great sign considering the incredible quantity of new material set to arrive in Phase 4. The earliest projects like Black Widow and WandaVision are already finished in terms of production, with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier not too far behind, and there are other movies and shows set to begin their shooting schedules in the very near future as well.
One of the most anticipated of the new Phase 4 movies is the untitled Spider-Man 3, which will not only feature Peter Parker dealing with a major identity crisis of sorts, but also will bring in both Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Stephen Strange and Jamie Foxx's Electro in an adventure rumored to be utilizing the MCU multiverse. The new movie has already begun its earliest days of shooting in New York City, and recent news has also revealed new information regarding future shooting locations and some potential casting decisions that need to be made.
New releases from both Twitter and Facebook have revealed some potential new details surrounding the production of Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' untitled Spider-Man 3. Twitter user @Whos_Nick posted that the movie is shooting in Atlanta, GA under the working title "The November Project," although the original reported working title for the New York shoot has been reported for months as "Serenity Now."

The Cattrell & Locke Casting Facebook page has also posted multiple casting listings for extras needed in "The November Project," including cameramen, reporters, photographers, protesters and high school students. All three of these listings can be seen below:

WHAT THIS MEANS
Even though this new cast listing seems to be a bit confusing with the possibility of two different working titles for one movie, the roles the movie is looking for do make sense for the Spider-Man 3 that Marvel Studios seems to be producing. Peter is still in high school and he would obviously need to be surrounded by kids his own age, and considering the whole world now knows he's Spider-Man, the other roles would fit in perfectly as they capture him in action and potentially protest the idea of Spider-Man as a hero.
There is also a distinct possibility that "The November Project" could just be a production codename, as opposed to a working title, that certain casting agencies, including Cattrell & Locke, are using for this upcoming MCU blockbuster. Marvel Studios has been well documented as one of the most notoriously secretive studios in the business thanks to the franchise's overwhelming success the past twelve years, and it could be simply Marvel and Sony wanting to keep story details as under wraps as they possibly can.
After news broke that both Doctor Strange and Electro would play some kind of role in the newest Spidey solo movie, there are just about no limits to how crazy this movie could potentially become. No plot details have been revealed yet, but it's already shaping up to be likely the wildest and most grand-scale Spider-Man movie ever put to the big screen.
The untitled Spider-Man 3 is currently shooting exterior material in Queens with plans to start full production later this year. The film is set to release theatrically on December 17, 2021, and a first look at the movie will be arriving by the end of 2020.
