We all know that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, aka Doctor Strange 2, will be one of the biggest Phase 4 MCU movies. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, the story will be set post-Avengers: Endgame, in which Stephen Strange character will have to deal with other people’s mess. Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is going to helm the upcoming Marvel film.
MCU is making sure to keep everything tightknit about Doctor Strange 2. As seen in WandaVision, Wanda/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) is already reading the Darkhold. Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is set on his mischievous adventures currently in the Disney+ series. Spider-Man: No Way Home is also going add more stress to Strange’s life. But these are not the only issues the Master of Mystic Arts have to deal with.
Loki Series Writer on Doctor Strange 2
In an interaction, Loki series writer Michael Waldron has revealed that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will explore Stephen Strange’s past trauma. Waldron told SYFY Wire, “How can you go deeper into the character of Stephen Strange?’ This is a guy who’s been through a lot in the last several years.”
“What effect does that have on somebody so powerful? That’s exciting. And beyond all that, he’s just a great adventurer — a great adventure hero you just like to watch kick a**,” further revealed Michael Waldron about Doctor Strange 2.
The Loki series writer called the film a thrill ride and added, “It’s a thrill ride with heart like you’d expect from a Sam Raimi superhero movie. Sam’s a genius and the way he moves the camera is really exciting and he’s not afraid to take chances. I think it’s gonna be a really cool experience for everybody.”
Well, that’s an impressive update. We all are so busy to see how Stephen Strange will sort out the mess of the multiverse; we forgot he might’ve had past troubles too. Also, everything that happened in Endgame could’ve had an impact on him too. After all, he hinted at Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) that it’s their only chance to win. It not only led to Thanos’ elimination, but we also lost Stark forever.
Meanwhile, the filming of Doctor Strange 2 wrapped in April this year. Marvel kept the security tight throughout the shoot. Hence, not a single picture from the sets got leaked on the internet. The film also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Christine Palmer, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez and Elizabeth Olsen. So far, there’s no confirmation if Tom Hiddleston and Paul Bettany (Vision) are a part of the film or not. Chiwetel Ejiofor will return as Karl Mordo in the sequel. Thus, adding more trouble to Stephen Strange’s life.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, aka Doctor Strange 2, will release on March 23, 2022.
