Kevin Feige Confirms Doctor Strange 2 Wrap
In an interview with The Undefeated over Zoom, Marvel Studios Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige confirmed that he was in London for the final week of filming on the upcoming sequel, Doctor Strange 2: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
The movie, which will be directed by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Oz the Great and Powerful) and feature a score by Danny Elfman (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2), will star Benedict Cumberbatch in the eponymous role.
Plus, we already know that Doctor Strange 2 will feature a plethora of exciting characters rounding out the cast.
First of all, Elizabeth Olsen will be appearing as The Scarlet Witch.
Feige mentions that “Lizzie” went directly from the set of WandaVision to the set of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. It really is true what they say, Marvel Blog True Believers: there’s no rest for the wicked! Well, unless your name is Agatha Harkness.
Doctor Strange 2 Groovy-verse
Meanwhile, it seems likely that frequent Raimi collaborator, groovy Bruce Campbell, is going to appear in the exciting, multiverse-traversing movie, as well.
While Campbell could be playing any number of roles (including one of the three apparently distinct characters he played over the course of the Tobey Maguire-starring Raimi Spider-Man trilogy), we like to think he may be appearing as Ashley J. Williams, an antihero who has technically already appeared in the panels of Marvel Comics.
Strange Way Home
In addition to being closely connected with WandaVision, the Doctor Strange sequel will also connect with the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home.
However, just what that connection may be is not yet clear, but with Alfred Molina being confirmed to reprise his role as Doctor Octopus (which he originated in 2004’s Spider-Man 2), it seems that the multiverse will be leaking just about everywhere.
Which character are you most excited to see when Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives on March 25th, 2022? Marvel Blog is eager to hear from you! Let us know in the comments.
