Doctor Strange 2: Everything You Need To Know About This Movie!



Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe culminates with Doctor Strange 2: Multiverse of Madness. The sequel will use storyline lines from Loki, WandaVision, What If…?, and Spider-Man: No Way Home to create a story bigger than Avengers: Endgame. Pressure-free.

Doctor Strange 2 stars Benedict Cumberbatch and is directed by Sam Raimi. Jade Bartlett and Michael Waldron wrote the screenplay. From what we’ve heard, Doctor Strange 2 will set the stage for future MCU films. Release dates, plot, characters, and more are revealed below.

When Is The Release Date For Doctor Strange 2?

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will debut on May 6, 2022. The sequel was scheduled on May 7, 2021.

COVID-19 wrecked those plans and most movie timetables. Eternals moved Doctor Strange 2 from November 5, 2021, to March 25, 2022, to its current date.

Who’s In Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness?

Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will also return for Doctor Strange 2. The sequel will also feature at least one other Avenger.

Xochitl Gomez will join Elizabeth Olsen in the film. The Baby-Sitters Club on Netflix made Gomez famous. Jett Klyne and Julian Hilliard, who played Wanda’s twin boys in WandaVision, were spotted on the set and in a TV spot.

Tom Hiddleston may feature in Doctor Strange 2, but this isn’t definite. Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead co-star, hinted at a cameo in Doctor Strange 2. Given the connection to Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, or Andrew Garfield could appear. The Super Bowl 2022 trailer hints that Patrick Stewart may return as Professor X after 2017’s Logan. The release date is approaching, so we’ll soon know who made the final cut.

Doctor Strange 2 Confirmed Characters

Multiverse of Madness will likely include an Avengers-sized cast. Benedict Cumberbatch will star as Doctor Stephen Strange, Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme.

Wong will be Strange’s pal. Wong also appeared in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Spider-Man: No Way Home and Wong took over as Sorcerer Supreme when Strange was plucked out of existence in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. This may affect Multiverse of Madness’ plot, but only time will tell.

Rachel McAdams is Christine Palmer. She’s an ER surgeon and Strange’s ex-lover.

Chiwetel Ejiofor plays Strange’s arch-enemy Karl Mordo. Mordo hunts sorcerers after Doctor Strange. We’ll see how that pits him against Strange.

Elizabeth Olsen is The Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff. Wanda’s story from WandaVision continues. Last we saw her, she was reading The Darkhold and looking for Billy and Tommy. Wanda’s actions may be the secret to Doctor Strange 2’s craziness, yet she may be an ally.

Xochitl Gomez plays America Chavez in Doctor Strange 2. In comics, America may travel between dimensions. She’s a Young Avengers member alongside Billy and Tommy in the comics, and Marvel may be building up to their MCU debut. We expect huge things from her, so keep an eye out.

Doctor Strange 2 Filming Date

The movie started filming in London in 2020. The COVID-19 epidemic delayed filming until May 2020.

A rise in coronavirus cases in the UK halted production in January 2021. March and April were busy. Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, confirmed on April 15 that filming was wrapping up. Production continued through April 17.

Benedict Wong confirmed to Collider that filming concluded in September, but they’ll return for extra photography like with every MCU film. Reshoots took six weeks so the studio could “have more fun with the universe.”

Director of Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

Sam Raimi will direct Doctor Strange 2 in April 2020. Scott Derrickson was supposed to direct (who also directed the first movie). Derrickson planned to make a horror movie, but he departed due to creative issues with Marvel.

Jade Bartlett was hired in October 2019 to write the screenplay. Michael Waldron, Loki’s lead writer, will write Doctor Strange 2 in 2020. Waldron and Raimi wrote a fresh script after being hired and then Waldron told Collider’s Steve Weintraub in June 2021 that the COVID shutdown helped him and Raimi plan the movie.

Waldron said the extra time allowed him and Bartlett to go in a “somewhat scarier route.”

Raimi has worked with several industry heavyweights on this project, including Waldron. Danny Elfman scored Doctor Strange 2. Elfman and Raimi worked on Raimi’s first two Spider-Man films and 1990’s Darkman. Elfman and Brian Tyler scored Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Doctor Strange 2’s director of photography is John Mathieson. Gladiator, Logan, and X-Men: First Class are among his credits.

The cast praised Raimi’s directing. Benedict Wong said the director promotes improvisation.

What Is The Plot Of Doctor Strange 2?

Marvel Studios has also released the film’s official synopsis, which reads:

“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” opens and expands the Multiverse. Doctor Strange crosses the mind-bending and hazardous different realms of the Multiverse to meet a frightening new foe.

The summary doesn’t reveal anything that hasn’t previously been seen in the trailers and TV advertisements, but the mention of a “mystery new opponent” is interesting, given the trailers have made Wanda appear like the film’s unwilling nemesis. WandaVision ended with her wanting to find her children. She loves the fake kids and wants them back. In the comics, Wanda had a meltdown when separated from her children. Wanda’s rival? We’ll soon know.

Elizabeth Olsen didn’t know Wanda’s role in Doctor Strange 2 until she finished WandaVision. She told Collider that the plot changed throughout filming. Olsen:

“Always evolving, right?”

Because we’re continually giving notes and they accept opinions and thoughts, it’s always evolving during filming. When I was told I’d be in it, I didn’t know the screenplay. This movie was inevitable. I didn’t know what I was doing in Doctor Strange 2 until we finished WandaVision during the pandemic. [Laughs] It’s great not knowing. You trust everyone, then you add your character experience and people accept changes.”

Kang is also supposed to be the major villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. There are still options. Strange’s comic book villains could all appear in the film.
